    I am looking for a plan for a pontoon dumb barge;

    length- 6m
    beam- 2m
    height- 1.5m

    truckable and can compensate loads 3 to 4 tonnes .

    A 2 meter wide barge with 20,000 Lbs loaded on the deck will likely end up being an upside down dumb barge.

    sorry about that , what i wanted to say was that the two combined pontoons to compensate for 6 - 8 tonnes altogether.

    If you do not find what you need, I could help you design the pontoon, calculate the scantlings and make the construction plans of the hull.
