All Pontoon Kits Are Canadian Cost Guard approved, you are not getting something that was just slammed together. Our Pontoons are built to last, and built with your safety in mind, un-like the run of the mill Pontoon boats the sell on the market today, we have yet to under stand how these factory pontoon boats even make it to the show room floor, I know for my self, after looking at many makes, I would never feel safe on own of them, never mind the totally crazy price they want for them pop cans, (DO YOU Even know what we can offer you for that same $19000,00,they want for a 20 footer? A pontoon far better and made to last for your life, your Childs life and then much longer, and feel your on a solid unit) yes pop cans, see how thin the walls are on the pontoons, and no rub rail or skid plate on the bottom, no dividers in the floats, so if you hit something and made a hole in one, the whole float will file with water, un-like ours, solid chambers every 5 feet, factory ones are loaded with cheep plastic crap, just to make them look some what nice, no function at all, the wood floor is not even marine coated, wait what am I talking about, I have yet to see a factory built pontoon with any type of coating on the bare wood sub-floor, take a look under your pontoon or one your looking at, do you see a marine coating on it, or just plain plywood, I have noticed a very few now using a green treated plywood, well sock that in water for a wile and see what happens.

If we are building you a pontoon house boat, cabin weight and all optional equipment you want, such as fridge, stove, hot water tank, holding tanks (full), pumps, toilet, tub/shower, water slide and so on need to all be added up, most house boats last winter we used 36 to 40 inch D pontoons with a 10' or 15' center pod. w/motor mount, up to 200hp,all motor mounts are installed by the customer. (we can Gide you) with the exception of our Lenco DC drives. or boats using a 9.9 hp or less.
