Re: What to use of outboard quits

If you don't want the expense of a trolling motor , I would think a a smart phone would be the next best choice. We use our 18' pontoon for fishing and I'm equipped with a a 68lb troll motor with 2 deep cycle group 27 batteries. I would think I could get at least 5 miles at 3-4 miles per hr if neede...

Re: lifting nacelles for pontoon boats

Yep, It's all very simple with pontoons. Big tritoons with big power go fast, two toon boats with moderate to low power go slow.

Re: New pontoon boat on Squam lake

Similar? We have an 18ft with a 60. Does well for just the 2 of us. The size works well for two people, we are kinda slow but even if I had gone max hp it would still be slow.
