Default DIY pontoon power and steering.

Ok it would need a bigger bilge pump hooked to more power. But and interesting idea! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLs3WF3AMKc#t=166

Hey Bugz, Here's my rig. I welded up a battery tray right behind the seat, and made the rest out of PVC, a 2x4 and a flat sheet of metal. Works way better than I expected.





I'm sure you recognize this body of water ...not having to paddle or kick to where I want to go is way nice. And I get around 10X faster. This baby creates a little wake when set to full throttle, and the propeller sits low enough in the water that I can dangle my feet straight down without having to worry about them getting sliced up. We need to hit up Monument soon man

Nice rig! I will bring my tow rope! lol Definitely need to get out somewhere soon! So many great stillwater opportunities right now and so little time.
