Hello all! I;m new to pontoons and the forum as well. I've up on this forum for some time now and joined up. I just bought a 1984 Playcraft 24' Pontoon with a Johnson 100hp last month and have stripped down to bare bones ready for new decking.

Good luck with the rebuild. Can you turn the pictures?

I'm not sure how to get them to rotate on here. On my PC they are straight. I'll try again.

I still can't figure out how to rotate these pics for this site. When I upload them they load sideways even though they are straight on my PC. HMMMM....

Well, it's getting close to the time to get plywood for my deck. I was thinking about painting the bottom side of all sheets of wood to help seal them. ( edges as well ). What ya'll think? I cleaned all my rails with coil cleaner and I scuffed them with a red scuff pad and dawn soap. Came out like brushed satin aluminium, I think it looks good IMHO. Here's pick of the bow corner rails. Sorry about the pics always coming out sideways.

Don't seal the plywood with anything it needs to breathe and be able to dry out. Welcome! Rails look great!

Good to know! Thanks Curtis! Beside breaking out with buffer on the toons, is there a better way to clean those up. It don't have to shine like chrome, I was thinking more like the bottom of a cola can. ( semi gloss? )

I left mine alone. The cleaner they sell here turns them a dull grey which would be fine with me if I ever get time....

Any suggestions on how to lay out my console? I have a tach, volt meter and water pressure.

Did you buy the small one or the large one? What i did I cut out paper gauges and moved them around until I saw what I liked.

I got he smaller one. I was thinking along those same lines Barnmb. Unfortunately, this rebuild is going to take longer than I had anticipated LOL. Work seemed to have found a way to put the brakes on progress. In due time!!!
