Opinion's You guys think this idea will work?

Saw this on Craigslist for a few hundred bucks its 24' long with a 23" diameter. I was thinking about buying it and putting a large diameter piece of coragated black pipe over it. Something fairly cheap and easy that I can quick float out from my dock and set up in a few minutes. Just looking for a some opinions if ya'll think it will work or not. Heck I was even about just buying the pontoon tube and jibbing that w/o anything over it. I think the coragated would really help the pontoon tube last longer.

thoughts?

How do you intend to anchor it? I think it would work well if you could find a way to keep it from rolling and moving around.

well with the corrugated i don't think it rolling around will be much of an issue. I assume it would with the support side down (side that is shown up in the pics) just because it would make it top heavy. I was think of anchoring it with like two anchors on each end. nothing to high tech.

sorry for the incorrect spelling on corrugated, stupid phone auto corrected to the incorrect spelling. APPLE RULES!

Have you looked into the dimensions of corrugated tubes? Thats the only issue I can think of, otherwise its a genius idea, might look into it myself.

Ben, I think I could get a 25' tube that would slid right over the top of it. I think I am going to just go for it.

you can get a big enough piece of pipe to go over it. just depends what you want to spend.
I would put it over dill a few holes where those "legs" are and attach your weights or anchors to them... you follow?

Yeah Man Good Idea!

Wiatowski 03-22-2012 11:17 AM

What's the other side of this thing look like? Smooth surface?

andy_nintzel 03-22-2012 1:17 PM

It looks like a pontoon, totally smooth, I think it would dent fairly easily tho-
