    Hello...
    See enclosed - can anyone see where I am going with this...
    $4750 a piece - two ready to go now...
    $6.85 a square foot for 5086 3/16 5x20 aluminum sheet...
    Got a motor...
    Absolutely no way to make it pretty...
    One in the yard for office - one on a TSB set of pontoons for river cruising...
    Very interesting but possibly STUPID...:)

    From your Gallery :


    Hello...

    I cannot see the need for side decks...

    Sliding windows will give access to cleats for fenders and other and increase interior space...

    A big floating van - what thoughts...

    SH.


    Did I hear you mention ( butt ugly , floating , water )......... VAN ?..............:D



    I guess you mean Butt f***ing Ugly :D....But ...so what ?

    Looks kind of tidy.
    Cheap chair fits right in ....all very practical.

    Stretch it to 30 ft max....nice and roomy for
    one or two..Honda four .......your`e in business;)

    Easy build.
    No lawns to cut.
    Water a nice pot plant.
    Who needs a house..


    Still have this feeling it may be better on top of a Bolger box keel hull......no ?

    If you have access or boat on inland water lakes or rivers I wouldn't trade off my pontoons for a hull design. My boat moves along just fine without any tracking issues involved at the relaxing trolling speeds we usually run. And our boat also gets real nice fuel economy as a added bonus because we don't have to push her remain on plain.
