I strongly recommend that you go to that other page FIRST and make one with those instructions. I started this one with a piece of 26 (?) gauge aluminum (for you Englishmen, that's aluminium) measuring 30.4 cm x 36. I actually had to throw the WHOLE THING INTO THE GARBAGE without being able to use ANY of it!! I've put a LOT of effort into this page; I'd like it to be as close to "perfect" as possible.
This is a FUN project; not only does the little boat have POWER, but it SOUNDS like it has a tiny DIESEL motor! I'm really enjoying making many of these boats and this page will evolve as better ideas come to mind. Next, take the "cross-brace" part F and make it into a triangular "cylinder" using J-B and tape to hold it.
On the gunwale, both on the inside and the outside, make a mark with a pen, 13 cm from the transom. When the transom is solidly in place, it is time to drill the holes in the stern for the two straw tailpipes. THIS might be a good time to make a "stand" or "dry-dock" for your boat; it will be handy during construction. Then mark on the aluminum, the edges to be folded; use a ballpoint pen to scratch the 2 lines onto each piece. When that has fully dried, pull out the two straws and carefully remove the boiler from the Scotch Tape donuts. Now cut and bend the two little "blocks" (parts "J") like this; they will help position the boiler. Bend the top of the wire in whatever way looks best to you and glue the spacer to the stern. We all have those days when you are really excited to go out fishing for bluegill, you are  planning to have a feast of fillets when you get home.
How to Raise Crickets for Fishing Bait Quite possibly a favorite food for bluegill and all other panfish is the cricket.
I am a young student of electrical engineering, living, working and studying in Slovenija, Europe. As for me, I have been a boat fan since I was a child, but my familiy never could afford owning a boat. I browsed the internet a little and a lot of information about working with fiberglass, building molds out of wood, construction tecniques, painting, etc… I started thinking what I would like to build for my boat.
I calculated the approximate ammount of material that I needed and went out to find the best price for it. I drew all the parts for the back seat and the console on the plywood and then I used a very small table saw to cut it. I love diy boat building and everything about boats, and specialy designing new stuff for my boats. I looked through numerous poorly compiled articles with uninteresting material on this specific subject which I had been amazed by yours.
I think one came with a warning that the foam may shrink after it hardens which could cause additional problems. The idea was the release film spray would allow the foam to shrink without taking the walls of the pontoon with it.
Also water and condensation may be able to form in the gap, plus the foam could rattle around in choppy waves making weird and disturbing noises.
Location: pittsburgh Ted, my original posting explains how I will be placing blue sheet foam in between the bulkheads.
One name keeps coming up in a search, but they are not cheap no matter where you pick them up at. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. Location: Eustis, FL The short answer is no, you boat doesn't plane, nor does the example party barge you describe. It would be helpful for you to describe what you want, how you're currently equipped and how she currently runs.
I'll assume you boat doesn't preform very well or at least as well as you think it should and maybe some extra bumps on those pontoons might get you there?


He couldn't get these top end speeds on a pontoon boat with 60hp or 90hp unless he were on plane. Location: Milwaukee, WI If you build enough of a flat surface, it will plane.
The strakes extend from aft of the nosecones of the pontoons to about 3 foot short of the back of the pontoons.
Location: Los Angeles Looks like a simple way to improve high speed performance. A more efficient and high tech approach would be to use one or two horizontal foils spanning the pontoons. A very high performance soaring airplane (glider) may have aspect ratios in the 30:1 range. Some builders of multihulls have had great success with adding a hydrofoil that spans the gap between the hulls. Location: Preston CT NNYBoater I share your interest in improving the performance of a pontoon. Location: Sunny Ft Lauderdale Fla Put a pad on the bottom,You can play with the width a little.

This shows that tool.Put a short piece of metal tape on each of the two rear corners of the boat. Before you take your boat out to play with it, make several more "fuel supply" strips with candles glued on.
You should not have the candle flame too close to the straws; even inside the "steam chamber" they can easily melt. But when you get home you realize that the last thing on earth you want to do is clean bluegill. You will need to leave the pump and tube free, so you can remove it to put it in the lake to bring in fresh water to your fish. So when I started to make my own money I decided to make my dream come trough and bought myself an inflatable boat with fiberglass V (Vee) bottom. I decided to build a steering console, a pilot seat and a bow seat for my dear girlfriend Andreja. Along the way, when I was waiting for everything to dry I also build a bow seat and painted it along with the console and the back seat. I than went trough local classified ads on marine outboard engines and found a 1980 Tomos 18. There are other posting showing, what I think is quality work and design, and explaining how my testing went in my pool. This has me wondering if there might be something to be gained by looking at traditional aluminum aircraft floats. Since a Sun Tracker Party Barge 21 footer with lifting strakes and which weighs several hundred lbs less than the Suncruiser and has pontoons with perhaps 740 lbs less buoyancy will stay on plane with difficulty using a 60hp 4-stroke, I am wondering if my Suncruiser will lift and plane with the 70hp and stay on plane using lifting strakes of the same gauge and ends but the correct length for my pontoons.
The typical TR240 Trinidad comes with a 115 HP up to 150 HP and the weight is listed at closer to 2,700, which is about right for a 24' pontoon boat, but lets call it 2,500. Bill, who has a 2009 Fishin' Barge 21, told me that with 60hp and he and his son aboard, it went up on plane and reached 28mph. The higher aspect ratio the foil, the better the lift to drag (more lift for a given amount of drag). Such foils are intended not to lift the boat clear of the water, but to simply reduce the effective displacement of the boat that is carried by the hulls. We own about 50 km of sea coast and a floatable river or two Although we only have about 2000000 citizens, we have quite developed boating scene. I measured my boat carefully and then draw sketches of steering console, pilot seat and bow seat using a boat design software. Tomos was a very succesful motor company from Slovenija while we were still under Yugoslav republic. I just want to make a small pontoon boat, that will fit in the back of a 2 door Explorer, to put on a lake for about an hour or two.


Once a couple coolers full of beer and a crew shows up, now you're looking a over 4,000 pounds on a 70 HP. A planing bottom is effectively a lifting foil, but all lift is created by pressure on the bottom, no lift created by suction on the top. Lifting strakes, while they certainly provide lift, have an aspect ration of about 1:50, so have very little lift for the amount of drag produced.
Therefore, such foils do not have to be large, and they do not need to have any controlled surfaces. I have thought for some time about the Water Glide, read the posts and emailed extensively with the owner.
They modify their boat to make it sail faster and straighter and eventually they realise that joining two boats together will improve speed, stability and how much cargo they can carry. You catch a few and throw them on ice, not really considering that you might not catch that many more.
On hot days you will have to either add ice to the cooler, or on occasion pump in fresh water.
I was on a tight budget so I could not afford expensive inflatable boat consoles, seats and other expensive gear, so I decided to build my own boat accessories.
Much lighter than urethane spray foams, I'd cut & place the blue inside before I put the lid on. I am not sure if the Sun Tracker strakes would be wide enough to make my Suncruiser plane using only 70hp.
Documented results of adding foils to existing power catamarans include a 40% reduction in power required for a given speed. You have added to my understanding of planing, which I seek to learn more about before attempting a practical solution to my problem.The pontoon water glide is a narrow foil between the hulls at the center of gravity and seems to work quite well on boats of varying lengths and weights, with different pontoons diameters and engine horsepowers. The maker and welder of these strakes would be a metal shop owned and run by a mechanical engineer. It would do what the strakes probably not do: get the Suncruiser on plane at 14mph and keep it there. Children explore ways of navigation, past and present and imagine sailing to places that have not been discovered yet. Sure enough, they hit really well when you got on the lake, but it tapered off really fast for whatever reason. On this blog I will try to give some advice on diy boat building an some great tutorials for you to make some nice improvements for your boat.
If it happens to leak, I used silicone between and on the seams, I'd like to have something in the pontoon to keep most of the water out until I get back to shore. I know this from questioning a man on Cayuga Lake in Ithaca who had the Water Glide under his Sun Tracker. Now you stand there, admiring the cooler with 4 dead bluegill in it; wondering why you killed them. I also got remote opertaing commands along with the engine and it even had electric starter. His reports agree with many other pontooners who have the Water Glide and with Pontoon and Deck Boat Magazine's test in Iowa.
You probably will barely scrape a meal out of them, it surely isn’t worth dirtying up the kitchen for just a few fish. You will have to bring the basket into the boat when you are driving around looking for fish. They make some really nice livewell kits that cost about 20 dollars and can be installed easily, or you can buy those same parts for slightly less and make your own custom livewell. I sprayed foam insulation in a concrete sonic tube 2 years ago and it hasn't shrunk or deteriorated yet.
Maybe you could direct me to some of your postings of the first, or other, boats that you have built from scratch. As you can see, they are placed so that the planing surfaces are just below the bottom of the pontoons.
