Dose any houseboat enthusiast outthere have detailed plans for houseboat pontoon construction for loading capacity of 35-40 metric tons for river cruising.
Location: Melbourne Australia Steel Pontoon Design Do you have design details for large commercial steel pontoons 20 meters length with approx 35 metric tonne displacement for 2. Like I said I don't have detailed plans for your request, but I have some experience in pontoon design or houseboat design and I can make detailed plans for you. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. Have you ever daydreamed of selling all of your worldly possessions and buying a boat or had that romanticized notion of living on a houseboat with the water gently rocking you to sleep? Designed as a house for two or a place for a weekend getaway, the boat floats on a steel pontoon and has all of the comforts any home would ever need. The horizontal wood slats help block out some of the sun but also give the exterior plenty of visual interest. We can manufacture you a houseboat using one of these floor plans or custom build your ultimate houseboat! Keep your tanks in the centre pontoon either side of center ,maybe just slightly rearward, to minimse attitude and lean as you use water and add blackwater. PE or HDPE pipe is heavy and is designed around certain working pressures and abrasive requirements. Originally Posted by Scottym Hi, I have done this and can tell you its the best material for a houseboat.I used 1000mm diam pipe - 30mm wall thickness. Originally Posted by Scottym I can tell you there are no issues with expansion re the comment about water and air temp - the water soaks any heat buildup. It may not be a real issue as long as the construction carried allows for curvature and expansion, otherwise the boat will always stay noisy, doors may pop open etc. I used such pipes along the roof of an industrial building for both cosmetic reasons and to keep thieves from the roof after we had a series of expensive burglaries. On sunny days the pipe sections warped so badly the steel supports were torn from the roof, screws sheared or were pulled out, causing water intrusion.
Location: Sydney Yep you are right about the theory you describe in air- (and the pipe manufacturers supply all the expansion specs but also detail that for above ground it must be laid in ground or covered ) but in practice in the water is quite different. I am not 100% sure why the deformation is so much less in practice but it takes a lot to heat 30mm thick HDPE and maybe the heat soak to the water and air inside overcome the heating and expansion effect. Anyway as with any pontoon boat ,the rigidity of the deck and the house structure itself is far more important - the minor stress by any heating is miniscule compared to the twisting forces imposed by the lifting force of a diagonally traveling wave!

Location: michigan pontonn links Just to give you an idea of whats been done with pontoons. Perhaps the floating support(s) can be built to be 'disposable' after x-number of years, rather than the time, material, and expense of maintaining a rust free steel structure?
