Location: SF bay thanks, Ron, did you get the bit about how that mast is also the trailer frame? Or since I figure the trailer will have total of 6 wheels, be able to reuse the wheels and attach to hull and use power from tow vehicle with belts or chain so the whole boat could crawl out of the water as a unit. Edit to add--looks like they are there on closer inspection--they just fold down at anchor.

I've got electric brakes on my trailer, but they are not powered up while on the boat or when winching it off. On my boat, all three pontoons (logs) have 3 separate chambers separated by an aluminum bulkhead, so I've got 9 chambers total.
I've got the lifeboat - errrrr, kayak - always at rope's length already deployed and ready for a fast evacuation.

Dan Yep, exactly - they fold down when anchored - or if you want they can also be deployed when underway as long as there's no chop. We had Martinis and partied late into the night - they were from California and in the music biz. Then again, I've got about $20K (plus a lot of sweat equity) involved versus $2.5M - so I'll just have to put up with my physical inadequacies.

With the Jayco camper on top it floats in a couple of inches of water allowing a stepping distance on shore lines.
The camper can be winched on and off barge at a recluse setting and the barge could be used as a large boating platform to quickly explore distance areas of the locations economically or a jetty. Location: Thailand I just made a edit on the above to two 15 hp four stroke Johnson outboard motors incase some read 25 hp beforehand.
To date my boat has been inspected by the Coast Guard and received two yearly safety inspections in a row. I think if they would take the time and effort to actually build something, (like you and me) instead of being so cavalier with their negative comments I might be a bit more tolerant. The simple fact is that it has now been on several different bodies of water - including cruising the California coast line (although close enough to swim to shore).

You can use the link above to see the Myark folding trailer barge with campervan on lake lake Waikaremoana, map below.
The other Myark barge is self trailer landing barge I designed and manufactured that has removable torsions suspension and wheels.

The problems I see right off the bat are the overhanging stowage in the rear and the over hangs on both sides like the pontoons are to close, I would like to keep the pontoons as they are so I can keep trailer I will sacrifice beam width to keep the trailer if I have to.
I will take some better pics and more dimensions once i pic it up from lake Whitney Saturday the fourth.
When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.
It features a railing, roof deck, and a large area for grilling, fishing, and whatever else you find time for out on the big campground that these guys call a lake. I was not the only one that presented this same idea as per my apology to a former posted on the same idea.
For example i seldom partake in threads on racing sail boats - powerboats- and almost never multihulls. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount.
I would like to get it right on the first time with the Coast Guard when they do there test.
As for not reading all the posts on the thread, I did,(speed read) and as commonly happens some points and photos are missed.(115photos??) This does not excuse your sarcastiuc reply enhansed with faces in return. My interest is motorsailers.Thus I would have not viewed your photos but your thread heading caugh my eye because I have almost completed a similar design for a customer from California.

If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. I am asking for any in put and ideas the Y'all have being My first boat build I am going in as blind as one can be.
A pontoon boat playpen cover is used when your pontoon boat is moored, trailered or in storage.
I came across this forum while trying to find regulations on back yard built boats I found nothing on pontoons or house boat I could use a point in that direction also and if one is a coast guard and can help me figure out how to get her legal that would be the bestest. In this case the vessel is of course larger - stronger built to take sheltered ocean water conditions. Reading thru hear I see Y'all are some smart people Ya may have to dumb it down a little for me. All responses appreciated Will answer any plumbing questons You can come up with in return. The other feature is the trailer will have electric brakes activated in addition to chain load binders,straps as backup and lock in wheel chaulks. Once that comes into effect and it will, enertia then takes over as the prime enemy of binding failure.
Any wheel movement then generates further stretch until the chain reaction finally causes something to fail. The chain reaction being both the trailer's inertia and trailer induced inertia on the vessel all triggered of course by wave action. Chaulks help alot but unless they are equipped with a chaulk to deck lock in feature they too will succumb to movement. Basically it's a 100% backup system any two can fail and the remaining can buy time until a repair is made. In your case you can compare it to a load of palleted freight riding on a conveyer floor broken lose in air pocket turbulance flying conditions in a DC3.
