Big brother thinks he’s going to have some fun? i’m going to have some fun to What are you doing.you idiot I’m Andrew I’m Kevin Welcome to Brojects! This weekend we’ve decided to build the ultimate swim raft.
Yeah i am pumped about this project it’s going to be awesome! Any other time I’ve been on a swim raft yeah it’s alright you get out there you hang around for a few minutes and then you leave basically We’re trying to make this so that you’re able to go out there and stay and really have know wants out there if you’re hungry got something if you want a beverage it’s there.
So it’s a long weekend we’ve got three days to build the ultimate swim raft we get a simple eight by sixteen foot platform and we’re gonna put five barrels per side to give us our pontoon style flotation on top of the platform we’re gonna build a pergola we’re gonna use four by fours as the uprights with two by six cross braces we’re gonna need seating as well as storage so a couple rectangular boxes.
Should accomplish both the plan is to stay on board for long stretches so both the barbecue and a drink cooler are mandatory we’re gonna put a couple hammocks on board as well some hooks for our fishing rods To get moving we’re thinking of installing an electric trolling motor to accompany that a solar panel table.
This is an ambitious weekend build but if we put our minds to it i think we can do it It’s taking a lot longer than we expected We’re flying at it we got a lot of daylight left today Time crunches on.we’ve finally finished our little window frame exterior perimeter It will look great when you’re on it but.
We need to skirt it for sure.junior? Skirt? I don’t do skirts man that’s your thing and Kevin is gonna cut out our notches for our four by four uprights we’re about two days behind on the decking but hopefully it will go fast from here on out Believe it or not we are both self trained carpenters.
You might not notice that it’s trial and error.all this stuff is trial and error These are a couple of benches we built to go on the back of the swim platform Pretty simple little cedar boxes we can take off the lid inside is where we’re going to keep the battery for the electric trolling motor and the other ones gonna be dry storage Not too bad.if I do say so myself.
The plexiglass is going to fit right on top of the solar panel Little table for the back of the swim raft I just get the little people to do the work for me after I do the brainstorming I wouldn’t say I’m the little people This is head and shoulders above what the initial thing started out to be We threw in a lot of extras like the pergola and the barbecue.
The Best Mini Pontoon Boat for Fishing
Hello, i’m brad metzler with pond king incorporated and i’d like to introduce you to the newest addition to our line of pontoon boats the Pond King Rebel. We manufacture seven different models from six to sixteen foot and this is our oneman fishing pontoon. I’d like to show you some of it’s very unique features. Building a stable small pontoon boat that would fit back the truck was definitely.
A challenge. Our solution was designing a narrow frame that would expand once it was unloaded. The Rebel is only fortyeight inches wide in transport and expands to over sixty eight inches. It’s constructed completely from aluminum which makes it lightweight and rust free.
The entire pontoon boat only weighs one hundred seventy five pounds so it’s easy to move around with the attached wheels. Once you’re near the water, pull the pins and use the handles to slide out the pontoons. The pullout trays give you plenty of room for all your gear and the deck is coated with a spray on bedliner.
To give you sure footing in any condition. Replace the pins and you’re ready to load your battery and mount the trolling motor to the bracket. The pontoon boat includes a plug wired to the battery box. In addition to tan, the Rebel is also available in blue powder coating. The Rebel is so easy to launch.
You’ll be able to access even the most secluded ponds and lake areas. With a simple boat that is always ready to go you’ll be getting out on the water more often. Some of the best fishing is usually that quick trip out to a local private lake. You won’t be sacrificing comfort in this boat like most small rigs. It maneuvers easily and with its great stability you’ll enjoy being able to sit or.
Stand while fishing. I hope you’ve enjoyed learning about our Pond King Rebel and if you like the style of the pontoon boat but you’d like a little more room for a second person we offer the Pond King Rebel XL that has an eightfoot deck with tenfoot pontoons and weighs only two hundred fifty pounds.
It comes standard with the below deck battery storage and a trolling motor mount. With its six hundred fifty pound capacity it makes it great two man fishing rig or portable duck blind. gunshots.
