Pontoon boat

Recommended Posts

I think all of you know that I made a career switch almost 5 years ago to a Marine Technician from Automotive Technician. It's been a blast, no regrets! Get to work on some pretty neat stuff. Anything from a 2hp outboard to a million+ dollar sport yacht. Plus watercraft, ATV's and snowmobiles as well. 

Thought I'd share this rigging job I did on this pontoon about a month ago. 27 foot Avalon tri-toon and rigged a Mercury Verado 400R on the back! Price tag with tax was $226,000! When I water tested it with the customer I put it in gear at an idle and he said "This is the speed this boat will be going 99% of the time". I asked why he wanted the $35,000 400hp supercharged outboard on the back and he replied "Just had to have it!" lol. I wanted to open it up to make sure it was propped correctly but the customer was too nervous. I estimated top speed between 60 and 65mph.
