    I'm getting a Pontoon Boat

    My friend is selling me his 25' pontoon boat for $900. It's a fixer upper. I'll take it out places to go exploring & treasure hunting. It's going to be a lot of fun. Great for hooking up a hooka rig to it also. It also has a trailer that is in good shape that comes w/the boat, all for $900. And it has a bimini top. The floor, engine, & seats need work, and some other things too.

    Congratulations on the purchase of the pontoon

    They are so much fun; my sister and her husband have one and they enjoy it very much.

    I wish you lots of fun with the pontoon

    That's a really good deal.I've been shopping around for one with the same idea as you ! I have an electric hookah setup that I plan to install and was thinking of rigging up a glass bottom area.

    Sounds great. I like the electric hookah myself. I like the idea of a glass bottom too. It may not need to be too big either. They have a few glass bottom boats here in Florida. It can be done. I've also seen some neat looking solar pontoon boats on youtube. The panels are in the sunroof & they have several batteries, and a electric motor. That would be good as a back up motor & set up too.

    That boat doesn't look like it needs much work at all. Great deal!

    lol! That is so funny. Hey, even old pirate Joe has a good idea to hunt for treasure with a md!! lol.. He's way ahead of his fellows. He's got his boat, parrot, hat, md, etc.. he's all set!! lol.. cute photo.

    Yes, I got a pretty good deal. This $900 is just to start out with. I will keep track of how much I put into it. I like the idea of stripping it down & re-designing the floor plan. I want to leave enough room to pitch a tent if I am ever able to go boat camping with it. In Florida, I think there are many opportunities for boat camping. I would have to check the laws, safety, etc.. And parking my tow vehicle in a safe place for a day or two is a concern too. I'm trying to learn all that I can before the boat is ready for water.

    The boat in the photo is just an example. You'll see photos of my actual boat later this month.. lol.. I've seen it in his yard, he had it covered & under a parking roof area. He's fixing the trailer so that will be in good shape. That's a start. He's a merchant marine, so I am assuming he certainly knows how to drive a smaller boat (he's a master aka captain for a oil tanker ship). So I don't feel that there could be water in any of the toons. He wouldn't hit anything and knows the waters very well.

    I noticed online some solar panels for about $150 which if you put several together, may be just the ticket for solar roof & power for electric motor. Now making the roof will be a challenge, but not impossible.

    Thanks for feedback. HH. TS & Kelly

    Re: I'm getting a Pontoon Boat

    The real Pirate Joe/Obn


    Went out this past week with my hunting partner, early morning hunt............ came home with some treasure...(5 rings/2 gold) As people that hit the public beach's start cutting back on wearing the Gold. Research on the OldeBeech's that have now Past will be the new frontier for treasure's. Hopefully I'll be doing this full time come 21 months

    Couple tips I can give you is watch your tides and always wear a inflateable PFD in new locations...Good Luck.................................joe/obn

    Re: I'm getting a Pontoon Boat

    Well, I've had a pontoon for many years now. Started out with a fixer upper years ago and now use a 22 foot Bentley with a 115 four stroke Mercury. I take week long river trips on mine. I find lots of arowheads on the sand bars plus jewelry and coins at the party spots..
    Always remember the definition of a boat. "A boat is a hole in the water that you throw money into."

    Re: I'm getting a Pontoon Boat

    Got an 18 footer, great metal detecting vessel! The three most important things......it has to float, it has to run when you need it to, and items like lights, etc., have to be reliable. Beyond that keep it simple and don't toss anymore money at it then you have too. And always carry a spare battery that is fully charged. A boat can become a money pit in a hurry if you don't maintain it.
