Looks like you are using a chop-saw with an abrasive wheel.  While that will work.... it really leaves a nasty edge.  Most hardware stores carry the non-ferrous metal blade for miter and chop saws at a relatively low cost.  They work really, really well.

Just FYI.

I got the 2 outside toons squared up and 3/4's of the crossmembers installed. Once that is done I will square up the center toon and mount that. Lots and lots of holes to drill but I have 3 drills so I dont have to keep changing bits.

   Looks real good and I'm glad to hear you have 3 drills. I know I used a couple when I built mine but when I did my new trim around the fence pannels I only had one. What a pain switching between 3 different bits all the time ! Are your cross members just a square tube ? They look nice and beefy !!! Keep up the good work !

I need help identifying fuel fittings. gas tank has lots of fittings , some are for emissions which i dont need.  I need to know which is the feed to the motor and which is the vent. others will be blocked off.  2 photos. one of each end of the tank.

The fitting in the top picture with the orange plug goes to the engine
the one with the foil in in should be the fill port (looks like you need the fitting however)
I believe that the one in the bottom picture is for the vent
 
I have no idea what the dual pronged metal fitting is (maybe for emmissions?)
 
I have almost 9 feet of 1 1/2" fill hose and 6 feet of 5/8" vent hose available
 
Fabulous progress!!!  It's really starting to come together!  Looks really good!

Do you have any of the 2x2x.125 tubing left over?  I'm looking to make some vertical loading bunks for my trailer.  I would need 4 (or 6) 2' long pieces.

I picked up some deck joint  tape from PS but decided to do all the crossmembers. I have some self adhesive rubber flashing that I use for roofing and used that on the rest of the crossmembers. I also added a 2" x 1/4" x 72" aluminium  "tie bar" to the front 6 crossmembers to join them together in the winch area. I figured that would stiffen it up quite a bit.

OK Charles. I think he deserves an "Atta boy" award don't you? LOL  I don't know how many times I've done that myself. And all because someone "moved" those lights when I wasn't looking. Clap Clap Clap  Lucky for me I did my rebuild "outside" after I learned my lesson. Angry

Looks like you are doing a great job there NH Tooner. I'd say you are going to wind up with a might nice vessel when you get it all done. Keep up the good work & keep those pictures coming. You'd be surprised how much the rest of us learn just by looking at the pictures of other people pontoons that give us great ideas on HOW to do things.

Well I was about to screw the plywood down and decided that I didn't like the bolts sticking down from the crossmembers. Thumbs Down I could vision myself gouging my knuckles every time I cleaned that rail. So I lifted the plywood and reversed all the bolts. Just for piece of mind, and a much cleaner look.Thumbs Up.

The big orange plug is the fuel fill, the 90 deg. fitting is the pick up going to the motor.  I'll have to check on the vent, I believe it's the "dual" fitting.
Feel free to contact me for help on your project!

I've got most of the deck screwed down except for the gas tank area. I installed some self adhesive TPO to the bottom of the tank area and the tank braces to reduce chaffing. Also got my tank mounts made. The vertical brackets are Z shaped and  go down the side of the tank about 1 inch. Now I will pull it all apart and vac all the drill shavings out of there and install a bilge pump in there. I got all the fuel fittings figured out and will set that up properly with the emmision stuff.

OK time for an update. Finished plumbing the fuel tank.
 
 
 
All decking is down. Do i need to fill in the joints in the plywood? Joints are tight. Fill in screw heads? and sand down the deck? I'm using carpet.
 
 
Got all the miters in the rear rub rail cut and ready for the welder tomorrow.
 
 
 
 
I picked up a metal cutting blade for my 12 " miter saw, that Scott recommended. Not cheap ($106.) but well worth it.
