Hello all. I am new to this forum and new to pontoons. I'm looking to buy my first one. But I have a question about the one I'm looking at. It's a 1997 Fisher 240. My question is that it has black covers/guards on the lower half of the pontoons. I was told they were for saltwater protection. But they are separating from the pontoons in places. Can I take them off completely and not have problems? I've never seen them before so I wasnt sure. For the most part the boat will be used in freshwater. We go to the bay for a few days in the summer but not alot. Thank you for any help.

I am by far no expert here.  But my comment would be if they are coming off.....take them off.  Then, clean up your toons by whatever means you prefer and protect them the same way be it Shark Hide or some other product on the market. 
I purchased a new tritoon and had the dealer put on a protective covering of Shark Hide.  For what he charged to do that wish I had done it myself and saved a small fortune.
Curious to see what other responses you get.
The great thing about excruciating pain is....at least you know you are alive.
