My pontoon boat took a beating last summer during all of the hurricanes and tropical storms.
I had a ton of damage by the end of the season and the boat was pretty much toast.
My friends told me I should get rid of it and start new, but I knew that I could fix up the boat if I had the right supplies to get that work done. I contacted my supplier and I ordered all of the items that I needed for the boat. I used 316 stainless steel products to fix the problems 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 and 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 type of salt. The salt in the water can quickly 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, and 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 didn’t leave the dock to go very far just in case I had made some mistakes. It seems like the Pontoon was seaworthy. I took it out to the reef a couple of days later and one of the pontoons fell off on the way back to shore.
