super happy creative feature time
I have been given 2 21" pontoons to build a unique floating feature- ANYTHING goes! Here's what I'm up against or working with or what have you

1) I need a trailer

2) I need FUND$

If these 'toons are turned into something only for shredding I am going to look to the industry for $$, if we can build this as a hybrid or transformer I will put in most of the $$

what do I mean by hybrid? a regular pontoon deck for party cove or taking the kids fishing with hits that fold out of it somehow, perhaps a kicker on one side and a rail on the other

I want your ideas, sketches, and support, what would you build with them?

Scan you tube. I saw a company that builds electric pontoon boats. It's more like a Electric dock, with wood furniture on it. They are all cladded with wood. They sat very low in the water just like a dock would. It was pretty cool. It had a drive by wire joystick that controlled the electric motor. I could see you making a floating deck boat that had rails on it that you could chill, party, fish and film From.

BTW you have a pretty sweet man beard. Why don't chop up that wood behind you like any good bearded man would Do and then Sell that wood, then you would have the money to fund your project?

thank you for the suggestion, I am wakebeards.com hopeful :) That being said, I hand sawed and split all that wood (there are more racks you cant see in this pic) Even though the heat is un-holy in Phoenix, its really nice to have a fire on a rainy winter day so you could say I'm well prepared

I have the funds for this build but will only pay for it out of my pocket if I can come up with a hybrid

One idea as a feature only would be a massive "A" frame but for that I have a vision of a sponsor wrap on the deflecting side panels....

Dude make a floating cabin on them!! That is something I'm thinking of starting this winter

How about a floating bar with multiple ipa's on tap and sell them at $5 a pint at party coves! Mmmmmmm ipa

A bar would be sweet but I don't think the county would approve the permit

Picked up these 20 barrels for extra buoyancy if we decide to make a pool gap

Cut the ends off and make the worlds largest "potato" gun. Just kidding. I think you find a salvaged Nissan Leaf and make it into an electric tooner BUT you incorporate radio controls and synthetic vision (used in UAV or drones) so your sober wife/friend/mom sitting at home can drive you back to the dock.

Hey, aren't you one of those guys on TV who makes duck calls?

I would sell them to someone who has the money to make a feature out of them or someone who wants to make a dock, and re-invest that money in gas/equipment.

A multi use contraption made famous by Kosner in Water World. Fold out rail, big relax area, a boom that swings out to allow for a built in swing to water.
