I am restoring a Premier pontoon boat and was wondering how many of you have done the same or put some time and/or money into your own pontoon with personal mods. Would love to see some pics of what you guys have done to get some ideas.

my sis' husband and I did a restore on an old bass buggy tooner. tore it down to the logs. new floor, furniture, wiring, etc. actually did a different layout as we put it back together.
was a fun project and when you come down to it, there's not much to them.
I had some pics on the moomba forums that I tried to find but not located yet. did it around late '09 early '10.

Looks good. How much of a pain in the @ss was removing the old carpet and sheets of treated plywood?

I'm looking at doing my 22ft premier pontoon as well. At bare minimum I want to get all new seats and change the layout up. Contemplating doing the carpet too. But that's much more work than just the seats. I could have all the seats out minus the console in about 1 hour.

carpet on the original was trashed and wanted new lumber so it was easier to remove the wood and leave the carpet attached. took a couple hours to remove the lumber and screw down new wood. removing the old carpet and trying to salvage the wood could have added many hours to scrape and sand the old glue off.
if you have it torn down with no furniture and no fencing, replacing wood was pretty easy. don't know the total cost but iirc it was around $200 for the 4 sheets of wood.

We looked at doing this a few years back. The biggest cost is replacing the furniture. Thats why you see so many of these with people using patio furniture on them. Its cheap and easy to do the wood and carpet. The furniture is cheaply made and its wood so usually is rotten and needs completely replaced not just upholstered. If you have actually solid structure I know you can do the vinyl.

After what I have seen you have done to your other boats you won't have an issue at all.

Oh the upholstery is 80% done and I just got the old carpet off today. Went pretty good with an old 8" ice scraper. The plan for this is unlike others I have seen. Think old tower that used to be on the lake. I am doing everything myself and hope to have it all done by June.

This is the only photo I have for now. Rails used to be standard aluminum. First l scuffed them up then etch primered them then used rustoleum truck bed liner and put new siding with the green stripings on them. That big tubing behind the rail is the 8'x16' upper deck frame.
