    Thank you Special K, This is not really for venturing more than 100-150 yes from shore at the farthest, and certainly not on windy days. With in an hour from my home there are a lot of places, small MDC, ( Missouri Conservation), ponds and lakes this will be used on. There is also the James River above Lake Springfield to fish. Also, the seat riser will only be 7"-12". Not very high. Anyway, here is what I bought today...trolling motor included. Need to get the wheel assembly, as the seller couldn't find the original. But for $250.00, when others, in the used market are going for twice that. No holes, no patches, a storage duffel, and a 32#trolling motor...yep. cheaper than a cheap kayak.

    Good deal and good find. Hard to go wrong with that purchase. If you find it not to your liking I’m sure you could sell and get your money back out of it. Let us know when you get it on the water and how it goes.

    Will do. I got the frame assembled and put inside front of my storage shed/ mancave. and the black duffel with the foot peg arms and pump with it. Oh yeah, the oars are there too, as well as the TM. It's an older 32# Minn Kota with a tiltable twist handle. still want to put my swivel seat from my Aluminum boat the guy who bought it didn't want. I need to come up with a transducer mount, and a mount for the fish finder, as well. Then, we go get it wet. Probably be a couple weeks. Have to wait on them green backs to come in. My elastic plastic don't have no more stretch...LOL

    I think I'm going to go with the fishfindermounts.com non-powered unit for units up to a 7" screen. It's a low-profile unit that mounts to the tube and low enough that it wont interfere with the oars, should I need to use them. I'll have them shipped on the 1st of the month. It also has the transducer mount included with the mount.

    This version is the same as the Colorado pontoon. Unfortunately, it means no Transport wheel. Not even the square piece of pipe to put one in, if I could get one. I contacted the Manufacturer, Classic Accessories, and due to the economy, they have discontinued ALL their water products. Float Tubes and Pontoon Boats back in January. Customer Service said no parts are available, try Amazon who purchased their whole stock. In searching there, it returns, a "NO ITEM FOUND" note. So, Now, it's find a local fabricator and have it all made. YEA Me!!!! And the hunt begins.
    By comparison, It's not really heavy, weighing in at 70lbs bare. However, at 9' long and a bit more than 4.5 ft wide, it's bulky and awkward to be moving around by lifting and toten.

    I think I might have something figured out. I have an old cargo type wagon that was pulled behind a bicycle. The attachment to the bike axle with the spring disappeared some time back. Been out in the corner of the shed for a long time. A couple of smaller wheels a handle, (maybe), and a couple of PVC pipes. Should work. I have plenty of time to figure it out. Both sons-in-law and a future daughter-in-law supposed to be here for 4 days, and Ms. Joyce has a Honey Do list from here till then...But, while they're here, some fishin' gonna happen.

    Kid's bicycle from a yardsale. Use the front tire and fork and the headset/tube. Weld the headset to the pontoon frame. Slide the fork into it and wheelbarrow the whole thing, then remove the fork. No clips or pins or anything needed.

    This is what I'm starting with. An old bicycle cargo trailer...stripped down. The sides are canvas and can be taken off if desired.I will used 3" PVC schedule 40 to support the pontoon with a45 deg fitting on each end and about 4" extension after that so it can't fall off the sides. A 5/8" piece of rod material through the tube in the last pick for an axle. A flat washer, then wheel, then washer and a split pin/ cotter pin to hold it all together...the wheels, 13" wheels from harborfreight, has bearings on both sides of the wheel, so not worried bout it grinding on axle. I will control it/ steer it using the foot pegs for handles.Attachment 486790Attachment 486791Attachment 486792Name:  20240506_184604.jpg

    Well, changes again. I want to thank a very kind soul, who ever you are. I don't know who or how, but I received a seat frame piece from Classic accessories today with the square tubing piece attached for the travel wheel. I drew this up to attach two wheels outside the forks, one each side for stability. Thank mistary person who ever you are. I am eternally thankful.Name:  20240507_200705.jpg

    I went on Amazon and ordered a light 50 Ah LifePO4 battery for it. It only weighs 14lbs. Next up will be the bits and parts to turn a stern mount hand-controlled trolling motor into a completely remote on. Yes, steering and speed. Amazon cost in parts, $202.96. I already have the trolling motor so that's not included in the total.
