My pontoon boat took a beating last Summer during all of the hurricanes plus tropical storms, and i had a ton of injure by the end of the season plus the boat was pretty much toast! My friends told myself and others I should get rid of it plus start new, even though I knew that I could repair up the boat if I had the right supplies to get that work done. I contacted my corporation plus I ordered all of the items that I needed for the boat. I used 316 stainless steel products to repair the troubles with the pontoons. In order to properly attach everything to the boat again, I also used 316 stainless steel ironworker wire. The 316 stainless steel ironworker wire was perfect for the application because it is water resistant plus anti-corrosive. I used as much of the 316 stainless steel products as possible because most of the time my vote is in brackish water that contains some style of salt. The salt in the water can abruptly corrode the stainless steel products if they are not made of 316 stainless steel with molybdenum. The ironworker wire under the boat is covered with heavy duty pvc, plus that also helps with waterproofing the areas that need to last longer. I took the boat out for a maiden voyage after I finished with all of the repairs. I did not leave the dock to go actually far just in case I had made some mistakes. It seems enjoy the Pontoon was seaworthy. I took it out to the reef a couple of nights later plus one of the pontoons fell off on the way back to shore.
