    Question. I recently needed a way to support the extra weight i added to my pontoon/cabin boat. I came up with a way using 2pcs 23"dia x 35" pontoons. I inserted poly beads and expanded the beads to a rock soild pontoon. Awesome strength. I am now looking at building a 3rd pontoon with 10 rock pontoons turned sideways equaling 20' long and 35" wide. On the bottom of the rock, I plan a 36" wide Ski 20' long connected direct to the bottom of the rock. I am using a 6" channel [__] riveted together, should I rotate the channel 180 degrees to bite into the water flow ?
    The lift will be 5000lbs net lift for the 20' length and unsinkable.
    Will the Ski concept WORK in YO. Thanks

    This is going to be a salt water fishing rig. The toons are plastic and unsinkable, In the bays, oysters reefs can sink aluminum toons and this design is lighter and will carry 15000 with less draft and more speed. A superior design imo
