WOW, sharp boat!
Personally I have only gone 60mph on a PWC. A boat that big would be awesome but I couldn't afford the gas.
I assume it has 3 logs........

The average pontoon boots only get 2-3 MPG.Shocked....so this one getting 4 MPG is SUPER.

I have ran the entire length of Lake Travis and back on my tanks, that's a 176 mile round trip, plus extra miles for running into quite coves for swimming, fishing and eating or a total on my GPS of 192 miles.  This is a one day trip avg over 30 MPH and running 50 Plus lots of the time.   I have two tanks 30 gallons each and I still had 1/4 tank in each left.   I pontoon with a 50 HP will burn twice as much fuel.

Shocked This is the most gorgous boat I have ever seen! I can`t imagine the labor that went into this. You must be so proud of it. Wood is my favorite material, I love the smell of it. We`ve had aluminitus for the past couple years and fully restored a 62 Airstream. Aluminum will never beat the look and feel of wood though. Hats off! Can`t say enough about it. Susan. Guess I still don`t Have the knack of posting yet LOL. This post was about the awesome WOODEN boat that I saw.

Mine??? I'm flattered, as there are so many others like scbadiver's I enjoy looking at. I'm always impressed with those that take junk and make jewels out of them. It don't take much for me to start drooling over the others rebuilds LOL  Lots of GREAT ideas there. But post in the off topic section of what your problem is with you unable to post pics. Explain exactly the error message or problems you encounter, we'll help you through it and point you in the right direction, in fact that welcome letter we sent, has links to the most common suggestions.

Since 1996 this Misty Harbor 24' SkiToon has been our main ride. I was ready to rebuild her with new upholstery and a new 4 stroke engine but the other half had other ideas. She instructed me to look for a new toon and I always do what she instructs. 





After a lot of looking we decided on a 2012 G3 LX 322SE with a VF225 Yamaha engine. I wanted performance similar to the SkiToon, able to pull slalom skiers including my oversized body, be good as a cruiser and a lake float platform. There are a lot of great boats out there but we felt the G3 was the best boat for our needs. 

I had never heard of G3 until I did a google search for pontoon manufacturers and they popped up. Since they were owned and backed by Yamaha, they were worth a look.  Went to take a test run on one with a 150hp and one with a 225. The 150hp did fine but the 225 was what we decided on. Ann at Paradise Cove Marina was was great to work with and met all our expectations. We were treated great and feel we received a fair package.

We have had the LX for three weeks and it meets our expectations. I am trying to be good and break it in correctly but did a short run to 50mph GPS at 5400 RPm's, so it will do what we wanted.  It came standard with three lounge benches, a captains seat that swivels, Tilt wheel, Sony radio with ipod input center log storage, strakes , ski pole, custom cover, Garmin depth and temp, fish finder, deluxe Bear trailer, cooler,changing enclosure  and table. We went with the SE (new in 2012) because it had an arrangement we liked.

The VF225 is very quiet awith little vibration. I would not hesitate to get a Suzuki again because the previous one was run very hard for 16 years and didn't miss a lick. Since G3 is a Yamaha company we had a choice of engines between a Yamaha or a Yamaha.

So the only choice you had was black?

Skudrunner621- That's a good lookin boat. I like the black paneling. Can you post some more interior pics? I have a G3 too but mine is a rebuild at this point. I will be starting the tear down soon.

Greetings Pontoon Forum!

I'm a brand new owner... no previous pontoon experience, and limited other boating experience.  Wife and I retired to TN and got this to go out on the river.  Its a Sunchaser DS22 with Yamaha 90.

I'm glad to see that many of you are into fishing as I have lots of questions about fish finders and the set ups you have for your anchors.

Glad to met y'all!

Sparky

I just got a misty harbor pontoon and I agree they look like they are well made.  Mine is the short one a 1997 with a 2004 4stroke 50 merc.  Have not been able to get it on the water because the lakes are mostly mud and too darn low.  Wish I had taken pics of some of the other pontoons I had in the past.  Especially the one with picnic tables.  We used to get a bucket of chicken and a jug of rootbeer and head for an evening picnic on the lake.   Wink

Keystone lake West of Tulsa is about 4 feet low per the Corp of Engineers but its more like 10 ft. low from where it normally stays.  Skiatook is 7 1/2 ft. low.  So not too bad.

Oh and Thank you for the compliment on the boat.  I picked it up for 5K under book value so I am pleased thus far.

My Party Hut that I recently bought as pictured below.  It's currently berthed in the Oxbow Marina at the Sacramento Deleta.  I'm currently fabricating a "Bow Thruster" to make it easier to get it into my slip during those very windy days.
