Second time pontoon owner

#1 Post by Joe Friday » Sat Mar 17, 2018 7:15 am

Thanks for running this forum! We owned a pontoon previously, but sold it about 15 years ago when we stopped camping at the lake. Then grand kids happened, so we just bought another used 20ft boat. Looking forward to many days on the lake and making great memories with the g-kids this summer.

Welcome to the club. We have 2 granddaughters (4 & 1 yo). The older one loves the boat and I told her that she was going to have to teach her little sister about the boat this summer. She was excited about that.

Thanks for the warm welcome! Our boat will be on Sullivan Lake at Sullivan, IN. Great fishing, and plenty of room to pull a tube and let the kids have some fun.

Sounds about the same for me. Used to go camping and pontooning in the late 90's when the kids were young. Then nothing for 20 years. Now the grandson has an interest so waiting on delivery of my SunTracker 18DLX. He just turned 6. We are going to have a blast fishing and camping again just like the old days. Going to get an air mattress this time around though, ground is a lot harder than it used to be for some reason. :happy

Happy Sailing!
