DIY Pontoon Build Update 6

Update 6 shows alot of progress and the first water test!

Here we have her sitting on the trailer, getting ready for her first (and hopefully not last) dip in the drink.







And it hits water! Thats my little brother doing his best to get out of the water as the slab of concrete at the boat landing were very slick.






The first real test as I hop on it, no creaking or splintering so far...








Time for lifejackets and paddles. Chris, my youngest wanted to come with at first but decided there was more to life then what could be a very short ride in a decidely small boat and bailed.






Instead, Josh came aboard! Here we are about half way to our destination, the beach across the lake from the boat landing. This is where Josh, fresh from a 12 hour work shift, wanted to call it quits and let the wind drift us back to the landing.





I did give him two options, one, he could continue paddling and we could finish or two, he could swim. Funny thing about the lakes in MN when fall comes, they get cold. He chose to keep paddling.




We did make it across, unfortunately the camera's batteries
crapped out again (alkalines don't last long in digital cameras) and
by the time the wife got back with new batteries I had taken off with the boat again and let myself drift back to the boat landing. When we got it up on the landing, I had a surprise waiting, it had taken on water, about 5 gallons between both pontoons would be my guess.
So right now the boat is back in my garage, I'll hopefully get it flipped over and do another couple of coats of glass and resin to provide a better seal against water getting in. The crazy part is that we didn't have a clue we were (slowly) sinking and had been on the water for at least 2 hours! I'm chalking this up to being a sucess and am planning on getting it into the water at least once more before it freezes.
