Carolyn, I figured you were running out of water -- now I know! I'm thinking seriously of coming over this weekend and pulling my pontoon back to Louisiana (another "fun" 500 mile tow!). The low water took it's toll on Don's Port Marina where I have my boat, they shut down operations last week.  I had a friend in Galveston tell me he would take a Cat 2 hurricane just to get the rain and I'm inclined to agree!  LOL

Well you learn something new every day!!!!!!   I  have never heard of the "up and down" pontoon trailers, much less seen one.  Is there anyone who makes these around Texas?  If I were to buy one, I think that would be the kind I would get---works good in shallow water. Pontoonstuff is kind of a long way for me to drive to pick it up.
 
 
Looks like there may be a MINI hurricane coming to the Texas coast!!!!!!!!

Carolyn there should be some around there, keep an eye on Craigslist (or place an ad). Do be aware this type of trailer isn't very good for the highway, more for moving a boat around the neighborhood or marina. That is because of the narrow wheel base with the wheels sitting on the inside of the pontoons, not outside them.  We're about to get some of that rain here on the coast, hope some will follow me up there to the lake this weekend!

Flower Lady, I think Cream Puff is the cutest rebuild project I have ever seen.  Would you consider coming to Alabama and redoing ours?   LOL.  I notice the cover you have on it.  Is it a snap on style?  That's the kind I want to get for ours.  Did the old toon already have snap-on capability, or was that added somehow?

Flower Lady!! This is AMAZING!!!! I am in LOOOOVE with your redesign :) As a effervescent designer I am truly inspired by your boat! I actually want to scrap my entire design and go with YOUR color scheme. Unfortunately, I have a boyfriend and another male partner in on the boat with me, and they just won't allow it... SOMEDAY! Some day I will have a boat as elegant and beautiful as yours :) Congrats on such a FABULOUS job! 

Cheers! Beer

I am with everyone else here. Love the boat. I grew up on Cedar Creek lake and have many many awesome memories of that water. Great lake and great fishing. I still have family near the Enchanted Oaks area. I hope to make it up there to fish again soon. If I do, I will be looking for Cream Puff!

Thank you all for your kind comments.  Unfortunatley, we are in another drought here in North Texas and Cream Puff didn't get much action this past summer.  Our lake is almost down to where it was in December of 2011.  We are getting a little rain this fall, but not enough to help the lakes. Maybe in the Spring!!!!

Ok, fellow tooners, I need some advice here.........Cream Puff is in need of a new floor!  She has been sitting on the water, sometimes covered and sometimes not, for 7 years.  The floor is really soft in several places.  I want to replace it with something that will not rot.  Has anyone ever used "Seaboard Grip-X"  http://www.vycomplastics.com/product-families/seaboard/grip-x/ for the flooring in their pontoon?  The 4' x 8' sheets weigh 80 lbs. and I would need 4 sheets (320 lbs).  Is that too much weight?

I realize this is an old thread but I just received my dads boat, all the way from Wisconsin. It is a 1977 Landau 24' boat on the funkiest trailer I have ever seen. The tongue itself appears to be 10' long! I know most would consider it of little to no value but.......it was my dads, so that makes it priceless. I have been wondering just how far to go on this but, seeing your pontoon boat before and after has inspired me. I love your boat! To me its finer than anything Cabela's sells for $30,000. Being that it was your dads boat, I am sure you understand the sentimental value my boat has. Well, with the help of this forum (thank you in advance) I hope to be posting mine on here as well.....soon.

Seaboard, Starboard, and other HDPE products are wonderful materials, but won't typically work in your application without additional stringer support.  Even in 3/4" thickness, you can't use this material on 24" centers without a lot of sag and "give".

And as noted, it's heavy.

I know it is an old thread. But wondering if Cream Puff got a new floor....And water under the toons again. 

Seems like the new plywoods would work out since it was a 1989. new plywoods have a 40 year warranty.
