Earlier this summer I took a road trip to pickup a pontoon to make into a floating dock. Almost lost one wheel when lug bolts worked loose, but things worked out. Look at the size of the pontoons on it, they are huge, like the better part of three foot across. Aluminum parts are fine but everything else is trash, thinking about putting Trex on it for decking. When new it was very deluxe with power folding canopy, solar panels to charge batteries, microwave, small fridge, and fresh water system with some type of privy setup. This will probably end up a indoor winter project for use next year.
Last week we got everything stripped down to the toons and cross channels. That was about 16 hours on stinking nasty work. Everything was rotten and rusty, trusty air hammer cut most of the fasteners and now we got a huge pile of detritus to dispose of. Did come up with almost $200 from selling aluminum scrap though. That might just pay the beer bill on the demolition.
Next round is filling in few gaps for support of the Trex and smoothing up some of the cross members that we cut welds on. Hopefully, the worst is behind us on this project. After the Holidays we will start putting down decking.
Feels like you're pulling an aircraft carrier behind the truck now, sure seems big for my puddle.
