    Posted: 05/23/2018 at 10:59pm
I have read on many threads that when adding a third toon, the placement is slight forward for the center toon. I found a (3' longer) oversized center toon (with transom) and was wondering if anyone knew the implication of have the center toon protrude 2-3 feet out in the front. Understand the trailer considerations etc, but purely from a design or functional perspective, what could go wrong with this approach? Another point to note, this is an electric boat, basically a floating living room that will never plane etc, just wanted the extra buoyancy.  Thoughts?

extend it to the rear instead if it has a transom. All the new toons the motor is further back.

Thanks for the advice, i also was also toying around with the idea of splitting the difference and mounting a fishing chair or something up front using the mounts and a new small flooring section...
