DIY Pontoon Build Update 3

I've gotten a good bit further but these are the latest pictures.

My oldest just helped me take one of the pontoons out from the garage to move the other one and start working on the top. I'm not sure what he is doing in the picture, I just chalk it up to being a kid. The pontoon is resting on what will be the deck when the whole thing is put together.

Side image of the pontoon above, I had some work to do as some of the fiberglass didn't stick to the pontoon on the bottom so instead of doing the right thing and rip the glass off and put a clean coat on, I took a syringe filled with resin and filled in the air bubbles. Then another coat of resin on the top and sides and it was done.

I actually have both pontoons attached to the deck now and am planning on slapping on a coat of paint tonight and another coat tomorrow, then this Friday or Saturday it'll hit the water.

If it floats, you'll get pictures. If it doesn't, well... you won't.
