Many thanks in advance for your offer.
Our Fire Brigade also provides volunteer Fireworks displays for the Community and in doing so is looking for plans to build a deck barge as a floating platform for pyrotechnic (fireworks) displays.
It needs to be able to carry a maximum of 2 people and up to 1300lbs of cargo.
We have access to a good ongoing supply of 200 Litre polypropylene drums, which would be used as modular (floatation) Pontoons
We would like to install 8 x 200 Litre polyethylene drums, into a frame under the barge which would hold the pontoons under the barge.
Length: 8 m
Width: 3.6 m
Construction: mild Steel tubing and angle
Pontoon: 220 Litre Blue Mauser Heavy Duty Polypropylene drums, 580 mm D X 925 mm H
No of Pontoons: 1 x Port Pontoon, 1 x Centre Pontoon, 1 x Starboard Pontoon (8 x 220 drum),
Fixture of Drums: Each drum securely tied down with two straps
Centre of Gravity: cargo would be no higher than 4 feet above the deck
Details: We want to be able to trailer/truck this down the highway to the Harbour.
