Don"t think I"ve ever posted any pics of my boat before, so here"s a few. Somebody asked about the electric winch"s I have. I had already taken the anchor panels/covers off so just a bare stand wood stand now (ugly mode). As you can see,  I have two depth finders, one on the console, other up front on the bow section starboard side (transducer mounts to bottom of trolling motor), both front chairs are power air pedestals, trolling motor is wireless. On the console left side you can see the Trac anchor switches (pretty big) in front of the VHF radio. You"ll also notice on the trailer stand, that"s an elecric winch there as well, rated dead pull of 3000 lbs, comes with 25ft of remote cable and switch. I"ll be mounting a battery on the new trailer to supply juice, so I won"t have to have the wife open the hood to connect it up (too heavy for her to lift).

Thought I'd update my boat photo's after seeing what it look like originally here

I"ve not had any real problems with mine, its not the best, but it was on sale for $59 last year, so I bought 3 of them, 2 on the pontoon (console and starboard bow trolling motor mount) and one for the jon boat also trolling motor mounted. I would love to get a couple or so of the $200+ class with bigger screens as my eyes are not what they use to be

There ya go, you caught me just in time so it"s just sitting up there now with one lag screw holding it , but that"s where it was, just 2 inches past any object on the downward travel, on the way up, I just ease it up to slow down the swing so it doesn"t knock off my transducer from the end of the toon.

Here is mine:

These are pictures of how it was when I bought it. I am in the process of cleaning the toons and hopefully just cleaning the carpet for this year. Maybe put in new next year. The floor is solid so I am not too worried about it this year.
Here is a view of the inside. Lots of room to make my own decision where I want chairs etc.

This is what I"m using now, works really well as long as it isn"t really strong winds, and has a pretty darn good mount (in my opinion) Bass Pro Reel Shade Umbrella

Reel Shade Umbrella

You"ll see my review of this product on the web site there in the link.

You know, something about that boat makes me really like it and I think its the headlights (docking lights). I"d love to have a set like that mounted on my fence as I don"t even have the room on the bottom of the fence like yours. You"ve got enough for PontoonStuff"s type where as I don"t have an inch sticking out. My navigation lights sit on the corner caps

  Thanks Wildcat for the complment. We have been very happy with our boat. We spent months looking at used tunes when we gave up and ordered this one. Back at that time we did not realize so many parts were avl. Otherwise we probably would have bought well used and remodeled. But we can"t complain we have what we wanted. As you can see the front seats fold out to make a double bed. And the back bunk makes a confortable bed also. We have spent several nights out on the tune. And if the weather is good it doesn"t get any better. As for those headlight buckets. They proved to be my first education on wakes. Something about costly a costly experance that makes it well learned doesn"t it. A lesson well learned and nobody harmed, though somewhat wet.

So are those light kits by Odyssey or somebody else? I didn"t see that style on the one Odyssey boat site.

  Yes they were factory lights that came with boat. When we had our education we had to order them through a dealer. Forest River (Odyssey) would not sell them direct. So you might have some luck with parent firm. When we got ours wife made or dealer a mistake and I end up with two. Dealer talked me into keeping the spare.  He said items like the light kit have a habit of becoming obsolete. Can"t say he may have been right but I can do without another education. P.S. they are reversable will fit eather side just switch lights.

  In searching around in Google I found this thread is near the top on search engine for some searches for Pontoon Houseboat. Since I am a member of this forum and can"t change search engine. I decided I"d just insert the link above. This is the thread you may be looking for.

I"m confused I think - I wasn"t looking for a thread to your old houseboat rebuild  I was only inquiring who sold the lights

You know I had forgotten about this thread and noticed pics of the way my boat use to look like, so I updated that post to include pics of how it looks now although I"ll be changing slightly the exterior looks of it before too long.

Man, 2 BIG ole remote spotlights on top (I"m assuming they are remote controlled), they remind me of the one I had on a patrol car back in 1979. What is the motor you"ve got on that baby? and just noticed the big lights on the bow too and I see an anchor davit on the starboard bow, but no anchor in it. You can sure tell how low it sits in the aft section

These are few pics taken last week on the Mississippi. We actually had a couple of nice days where the temps hit low to mid 70s and hopefully no rain. The PS pontoon cover has now about 300 miles on it and is holding up great. The cot tent I have really works out great the way it fits in the boat. I can also fit one more on the front end when I remove the fishing seats. I can fish into the night where ever and don"t have to worry about going back to the tent or cabin. Just anchor or tie-up and crawl into the tent. I will try to get more pics this summer when we travel.
