    Hello, I've been interested in designing and building my own pontoon for a while, read around a little bit, but looking for organized education at this point. Can someone recommend a book or a course? Thanks

    One pontoon doesn't really do you much good... Just kidding!

    Bunches of books on Amazon about pontoon boat building, along with probably hundreds of hours of Youtubes. Check your public library system to see if they have any of the ^ books to save the cost of a book you might read once or not at all.

    What material are you building with? If you are looking to learn the basics, it will take less time to focus on a method and material.
