My buddy and I have been talking about splitting the cost of a pontoon boat and converting it into a party barge, and we found a killer one for $5000 here in town - http://burlington.craigslist.org/boa/3201455066.html
The idea is to add more batteries, amps, speakers, lighting, DJ booth, BBQ, etc and moor it at his house, then just drive it over to the local beach we have our float parties at!
Just wondering if anyone has any experience converting a pontoon boat to a party barge (creating secure/dry areas to mount the stereo/speakers (there's no real rack on this one, so I'm guessing we'd have to fabricate something?).
Post some pics if you do (and yes, I did see that one in Cali that was just crazy overdone with the 16-18 tower speakers and green glow!)
