    After the Pon-Doo build i have decided to try a real boat ! Just got my hands on a 1972 silverton 27 x 11 the mechanic is A1 and its very solid and heavy as hell ! So i pretty much threw everything away :D here is a hint on whats to come :idea: jacuzzi in the nose of the boat ,home brewed side thruster, extend the second floor so i can sit 10 people at the table upstairs , bigger kitchen area on the back of the boat , big bbq , stereo , led lights all around and inside the cabine lounge style will be a flat screen , full size gas fridge , glass shower with toilet integrated inside and a full size bed . Driving is from the flying bridge only . Ho and lets not forget the pirate flag ;) pics to come soon

    A jacuzzi near the bow will add a considerable amount of weight. Test the trim and handling with test weights first.

    Eric runner, this is allen in Memphis TN USA. Read all your threads on building pontoon plan a and then saw short hit on plan B. I have access to a 22 ft pontoon almost brand new with no motor. I wanted to speak with you briefly about your plan B for the pontoon. I are sure there are pros to pushing versus pulling. Pushing with your set up takes some engineering and renovating. If I am reading this right plan b was to pull the pontoon from the front using a A frame type arm to steady the pontoon away from the jet ski and provide better steer control? I understand your privacy but if you can email me at ridemyhdh@gmail.com or call me I would appreciate it. Thx Allen.

    Weight is still weight.

    If you can get enough displacement up forward , it could be done , but
    Pontoons are at a distinct disadvantage there....... a third hull may do it.

    Do the sums first.

    I just feel sorry for the nice old Silverton 27 which would make a terrific restoration project. A good friend has one and it's a treasure.

    Good craftsmanship and sheer determination cannot defeat the priciples of physics.

    Jacuzzi, 10 to 12 pasengers, full sized fridge, TV, substantial generator, a generous supply of strong beverage..............Lots of weight it would seem.

    Lets not forget the 10 guest flybridge . . . yep, we'll read about this one in the papers. I just hope no one gets hurt, which unfortunately isn't usually the case.
