    Show Boat Custom Coating- Ceramic Coating

    To be honest, I would not expect it to last 10 years. Would be happy with 5. Just wanted to see peoples take on the finish. Thanks

    Show Boat Custom Coating- Ceramic Coating

    Does anyone have experience with ShowBoatCustomCoating in Ft. Lauderdale. My local detailer says they sell a ceramic coating that has been proven to last 10 years. He suggests that I go the extra expense and get it done. Says in the long run it is cheaper since I do not have to do the annual...

    Shallow dock

    Wow, those sea legs look cool but unfortunately too expensive for me! My community has a limited number of docks and the deeper better ones rarely become available. It's either this shallow dock or pull boat out after each use. When to low a tide then we cannot use the boat and just have to...

    Shallow dock

    No there is no chance of boat wake since the nearest boat would be traveling far away. When we get strong winds it brings up some waves and boats there rock a bit. Bottom is sand but could have some loose rocks. I guess I can rake the area and make sure.

    Shallow dock

    So I have the opportunity to get a shallow water dock to leave my potoon in water over the summer. I measured the water at low tide and it is 18 inches. My pontoon water line is 16 inches at the back stern. Only 7 inches at bow. I an concerned that there will be times the back of my pontoon will...

    Florida Keys Pontoon Cleaning

    Wondering if there are any members here in the Florida Keys. I am looking for a referral to get my pontoon tubes cleaned and polished. The tubes have bottom anti-foul paint but the tops need cleaning of minor aluminum rust and then afterward polished and protectant applied. I have no idea...

    Painting Tubes

    Has anyone painted their tunes completely with anti foul paint? Benninton is suggesting i do that to prevent my tubes from saltwater oxidation and I would like to know how its worked. Think it would look terrible but willing to try.

    White Rust oxidation at waterline

    Thank you. Just as a follow up to my thread, I contacted Bennington and they recommended to clean the pontoons, seal them and then apply anit-foul paint to the complete pontoon and not stop at the waterline. I think it will look ugly but I rather have an ugly boat then a rusted one. LOL

    White Rust oxidation at waterline

    Thank you for the pointers. We did have several king tides during the summer as well as storm surges. Water could have reached some electrical connections.

    White Rust oxidation at waterline

    Went to look at pontoon today and was able to find the 3 toons with the same amount of corrosion. The outside toons had intact anodes but the engine mount and engine anodes were really bad. All were installed in June 2020. Marina where I leave it has no shore power but I did have it at a friend...

    White Rust oxidation at waterline

    Yes, totally different this year. The initial paint was done February 2018 and lasted me 2 summers with no ill effects. I had it repainted on June 18th 2020, just 5 months ago and this is how it looks now. Same local company did both paint jobs. I also put new anodes in June. What is active...

    White Rust oxidation at waterline

    The company that painted it the first and last time is used to painting pontoons and swears they use the correct paint. I religiously replace the anodes.
