Hi from Louisville!

#1 Post by stevez » Wed Aug 15, 2018 11:08 am

Good afternoon everyone. I have owned several boats in the past including a 22 foot Sweetwater I bought used. Had the big/bad Cobalt runabout that I loved for many years and now planning for a pontoon. I just want to learn all I can about the different products available and be an informed buyer when I'm ready. My wife and I are going to be buying a place in a year or so on Nolin Lake in Kentucky (at least that's the plan now!). We'll want a nice pontoon. Looking to learn most of all and thanks in advance. Glad to be here. Steve

Welcome! Lots of good folks in here and lots of good info. Buying a boat is like buying a pistol---as many suggestions as there are people on the forum--I like the S&W Shield 9mm with a Crimson Trace Green Dot laser fyi! But seriously folks there are some great people here that own every type of pontoon there is-depending on their expected use.

My only suggestion is to always buy the rated horsepower--a pontoon boat is basically like trying to push a dumpster thru the water... but with the Sweetwater you probably know that. Happy hunting!
