Pontoons are Precisely Welded and Pressure Checked at the Factory
Guarantees tubes are free from leaks. Tubes are sealed with a plug that can also be used to drain the tube in case of condensation or damage.
Protective Keel Runs Full Length on Tube Bottom and Leading Edge of Nose Cone
This provides additional strength to the tube, protects against damage and aids in boat tracking.
Nose Cone with Integral Splash Guard
Eliminates the need for weld on fins that can bend or break. Robust design with leading edge keel.
Tubes are Constructed with .080", 5052 H32 Aluminum and Baffled at Seams
Heavy gauge .080" aluminum protects against damage. Baffling adds strength.
Dual Saddle Brackets
Each bracket is welded inside and out. Two brackets support each side of every cross channel with four contact points, creating a well distributed and rigid attachment to each tube.
Extruded Style Brackets Made from 6063 T6 Aircraft Grade Aluminum
Brackets are more uniform, harder and stronger than fabricated styles. They do not crease the material like formed brackets.
1/8" Thick Extruded Cross Channels Made from 6063 T6 Aircraft Grade Aluminum with Large Radius on Inside Corners
Channels are more uniform, harder and stronger than fabricated styles. Extra material on radius strengthens corners. NO formed angles that can weaken and stretch raw material. Cross channels are set on 24" centers (extra channels added to support motor mount).
Channels on 24" Centers with Extra Channels Added to Support Motor Mount
Durable and solid platform that minimizes deck twisting and provides a smooth ride.
Motor Mount Constructed Using 1/8" Thick Aluminum
Heavy duty design easily carries the load of today's larger 4-stroke outboards.
Most Models have Four Stringers and (16) 3/8" Bolts Supporting the Motor Mount
Provides maximum support and minimizes vibration.
RAILS and GATES
Rails Shimmed Off Floor with Composite Spacers
This allows water to drain out at all locations and prevents mold build up along railings.
Full Length Gate Hinges
We utilize a heavy duty full length aluminum gate hinge with a stainless steel hinge pin that provides maximum support and reduces warping.
Rails incorporate neoprene foam liners to dampen vibration and prevent rattling.
Each Gate is Equipped with Pinch Protectors
Prevents potential damage caused by items being wedged between the gate and stationary wall section.
3/4" Multi-Ply Treated Plywood Panel Decking
Our Plywood panels carry a lifetime warranty against rot and insect infestation. 3/4" multiple layer plywood is the preferred panel for top pontoon builders. Plywood is unsurpassed in its ability to provide a rigid, stable platform while offering natural sound and vibration dampening for a smooth ride.
Deck Trim Has Cross Channel Backing in Front and Rear
Supports deck trim and prevents bending, particularly important when loading and un loading with a crank-up style trailer.
Wiring harness is encased in a protective fire resistant plastic conduit. Wiring is run inside of tube brackets and secured with zip ties. Cross deck wiring is fastened at a minimum of every 18". Wiring Harness has Deutsch connetors with a water tight seal.
Protects from chafing, snagging and improves long term reliability.
33oz., SRT - Stain Resistant Top Coated Base Vinyls
Long lasting puncture resistant material treated to resist mold and mildew. Top coating makes vinyl stain resistant and easy to clean.
High Density Foam Designed to be Soft in the Back and Firm on the Cushion
Greater comfort and durability. High density foam has greater form retention.
Fabricated Seat Bases
Our seat bases are stronger and provide more room for storage. Seat bases are shimmed off the floor with plastic spacers for optimum ventalation at the floor where it is needed most.
Vinyl Covered Seat Bases
Finished look, nicer than bare plastic.
Molded Fiberglass Helm Stands
Fiberglass is very strong and has lasting beauty and durability that will not fade, scratch and twist like rotomold plastic helms.
