Well, I don't know the year make or model and there are no numbers to be found.  The tubes measure 20 inches wide x 23 inches tall.  When I picked it up (lost the pics) it was 2 tubes and most of the cross members.  And a pile of parts.  I will be titling it as a 2011 ASY.  Last week I put 4 extra HD cross members on the back and got the transom mounted:

Next the PontoonStuff deck joint tape went down, followed by their CCA treated marine plywood.  Up front I used the PS Coated Deck Screws.

Out back I used the 3" Deck bolts, and sandwiched the new cross members, decking, and tubes together.  A good sweep, and I was ready for the new PontoonStuff Gray Vinyl Flooring.  It goes down just like carpet:  Roll it all the way out, fold it over in half, and trowel out the PS glue.  Repeat on the other side.

I had some trouble with the front wanting to curl up, so a few pieces of tape held it in place over night.  Then I trimmed it down (comes 8.5' wide) and installed new rub rail.  PontoonStuff Square Corner Caps went on the back, and Large Radius Caps on the front.

I also beefed up the transom.  I replaced the wood with CCA, and had 1/8 inch plate aluminum welded on the back.  With the new doubled up HD cross members and transom, I should be ready to hang some HP back there!

I'm VERY impressed with the flooring.  This is some quality stuff, and it went down great and looks even better!

Looks good in the pics too. You're gonna have to bring that boat to one of the get-togethers so we can "try" it out Thumbs Up   I like that rounded look in front and squared in the back. So that's the new PontoonStuff vinyl flooring ehh - it looks good.

Sure seems to be a shame to have it on a rickety trailer though LOL, Ty where in the world did you get that trailer - from Sean?

Don't be knockin my 1969 Hoosier crank up LOL  Seriously, I wouldn't go farther than 2 miles with it, but I need it around so I can move boats in and out of my shop (or to giant ware houses).  As soon as we do a little more R&D with this boat I'll be back on it hot & heavy, so stay tuned.  And don't worry Charles, I'll post some pics of my 'real' trailer and my next project as soon as this one is done Tongue

I didn't think it was that same broken down trailer goldome14 had another there or not. You've given me a really good idea for the back of my boat, just make it square and move the transom back which would probably put the motor in clean water. It would be easy to do right now, but not gonna tackle it now.

I was thinking of doing the same thing Charles. I wonder what the advantages/disadvantages to having the motor another foot or so behind the boat would be.......

Can't think of any disadvantages to tell ya the truth. Ty - Rick, what's your thoughts as to Ty's design. I know VaGent did something similar and I think a couple others have as well.

The big advantage is the prop runs in cleaner (less turbulant) water and gets a better bite. It also provides a fulcrum effect that lets the front of the boat ride higher. I think Ty's design is excellent and looks super strong. Could probably hang a 200 of the back of it.

Just a suggestion on running the cables & electric for what its worth as I did NOT think about it when I was rebuilding mine. Angry It was very hard to get everything ran to the stern so I had to go back & change it.

 My logs are exactly like yours & my cross stringers are only 2" high. This causes some problems "threading" the steering cable, motor cables & any electric cables going to the stern of the boat due to a narrow working space between the logs & the bottom of the deck. What I have done is instead of trying to drill new holes & feeding everything along the side & then over to the transom is once I come thru the deck at the helm I immediately ran everything towards the CENTER of the cross members (sweeping turns) & then turned towards the stern. Again using sweeping turns. It worked out great this time & will make it very easy to access everything if I need to any repairs or change out the motor cables.

This not only gave me working space to do everything but it also made a straight shot to the transom. My steering cable is the only thing that runs along the inside edge of my stringers & then curves to the engine.  2 inches makes for a might tight space to have to work with.

Mr. D,
 
Your boat is looking great. I like that vinyl flooring a lot. I would also like to know where you got the rub rails, they look very nice. That is going to be a clean looking boat.

I purchased the rub rail locally.  Because we have so many manufactures here in the area, it's not too hard to find pretty much any thing you want from the boat salvage guys.  Shipping it how ever would be next to impossible.  My sides were 23' long.

well since you asked the same question I had thought of, I called him. Seems there are several recycling yards up there near Elkhart, IN and he managed to get a couple pieces that were 23ft. Problem is distribution of long pieces as PontoonStuff had thought about it, but shipping it would be a nightmare. If I ever get back up there, I'm going to see if I can't get my hands on some, but I'd need a trailer.

Charles if someone you know has a headache rack that would fit your truck or even a camper shell for something that lite you could haul back that way. I have even seen folks locally haul 20ft sections of PVC pipe UNDER, yes I said UNDER their vehicles tied to the bumpers on each end. You have got to love redneck ingenuityLOL

Seating lay out looks like this:
 
Since this boat has the lower front rails (and because I've never done one this way) I decided to set it up for fishing and fun...

None of the seating is fastened yet, but I'm 99% sure this is how I will place it.  Just waiting to see what I will be doing for sure about a rear sun deck.  I will need that covered space to locate my fuel tank and battery in order to keep the rear deck open.

Hey Ty, I agree with what Woody said above. You're doing a sweet job on that pontoon. I LIKE the color scheme  & the layout of all the furniture. You are going to really enjoy that pontoon once its all done. ALL DONE???  That "ain't" never going to happen. LOL  "US" tooners NEVER get it all done as there is always something else we want to ADD or change or whatever whim hits us. Just BOAT (bring on another thousand) & keep on going.Clap Keep up the good work & make sure you keep those pictures coming especially how you wind up doing the sundeck.
