Pontoon cylindrical tubes are the basic hull that the rest is built upon and range from 12 to 80+ ft.
Large sized Pontoon Boats range from 40-75ft or more, and are the "mega" boats that are becoming very popular. Are pontoons safe from damage and sinking?They are very safe since pontoon construction is similar to taking soft drink cans, and welding them together, end to end. Can you use a pontoon houseboat for rough water?Because of the "low freeboard" you will find them mostly on lakes, rivers, and bays.

I’d like to buy or build a lightweight trailerable houseboat or a pontoon catamaran, which can carry a mobile home, or a slide on construction which can be used on a pontoon base as well as on a flat-bed road trailer. I search the web for such solution and found the houseboat PRORETA 7 – Made in Germany.

I had a head wind at times of 5 to 10 MPH, and was still able to make very satisfactory headway. Anyway, there I was happily noodling around the other day when it suddenly slipped into my consciousness that I forgot to send you one of the neat EC pics.
Here are a couple of updated pics of this years TX 200 PDR which I have named Tenacious Turtle. I am adding a bilge pump with thru hull fittings leading from the cockpit and the cabin and leaving through the stern. The vehicle inspection bureau mainly deals with issues inpsection and not driving laws but often times there is an overalp. Now, no doubt about it, if this trailer is greater than 4500 lbs, then when you get the trailer inspected these lighting assemblies must be on the trailer at the time of inspection in order to meet the trailer inspection requirements. If the trailer is less than the 4500 lbs, and its not required to be inspected then we get into another grey area of transporting something that is fairly large which then I think would be ok to place the lighting assemblies on the boat.
I am also going to pass this question onto a local inspection field supervisor and ask him about the portable mounted lighting systems.
I mounted my trailer lights on removable wood parts that easily come off the trailer, so I'm good. I went and visited Dave Perillo the other day, had a good chat about his progress and got him to email some more pics over. Just as a by the way, those tools you see on the bench behind are about all he has to his name, a neighbour cut his stringers on a table saw, and thats about it. I have started to play with the location of the halyard on the standing lug sails you made for me, as you know the halyard location is very important for the set of the sail.

I received this entry from one of our readers who I’m pretty sure designed this himself. The best part is that since it folds it can meet the public road standard since it goes down to 8′ wide when folded. Thanks for sharing your breakthrough 24′ trailerable folding houseboat design with us, Peter!

On a houseboat this size you work front and back passing through a much wider, more useful, roomy interior. The other way is just have pontoons that slide out or not for boating and in for trailering. Geez, I’d advise getting an overwidth permit when you tow, which costs next to nothing.

This idea is so simple and full of common sense, it makes you wonder why more of us didn't think of it. That new automatic sculling device looks really neat; looking forward to seeing that in May, assuming you'll be using it.
On tiny boats it is always a problem to maintain balance when the load shifts--one person in the stern vs. I know the lateen does not reef but I can always drop the main and sail under jib alone if the weather gets harsh. I still have to touch up the paint and finish the hatches but she is almost ready to float.
I haven't attached it to the deck yet that's why there are no screws showing in the photos.


Thanks Chuck - sail and bag are perfect, and the Egyptian Cotton color is easy on aging eyes.
I made a very simple taper jig by cutting a piece of pine the thickness of the staves and six feet long (length of the taper), then used two way tape to stick a taper strip on the top which bears against the table saw ripping guide.

Join me as I discuss my story of why I chose to use houseboat building plans for my houseboat. Anyway, as you know waterproof GPS units frequently aren't, or give up after a prolonged exposure. You should find a way to mention it on the Watertribe forum, as sculling is sometimes discussed there. I thought about adding a red pinstripe between the red and blue on the sides and bow to break up the color and to cover my less than perfect masking job on the sides. I know that does not sound like much sail but I was actualy hitting high 5s under jib alone on the first day of the TX 200 last year. I have included some pictures for your scrunity and if you will run her as an ad I will send on some copy, I am getting too old for this kind of boat.

He took a clear, plastic jar (it originally held some sort of food), cut off the top and put it, upside down, over his GPS.
The open bottom ventilates it and prevents any condensation and it keeps virtually all moisture off the unit, which can be read through the plastic. The only concern is to try to keep the lip of the bushing down just enough that they don't hook when sliding the dinghy upside down over an edge--truck tailgate, roof carrier, etc.
The hatch on the bow and in the cockpit for the walk through cabin will be plywood and will be flush with the top of the 1x2s on the roof of the cabin.
