First time on the forum...I bought this pontoon and trailer (no motor) last week for $500....My question is should i redo this boat or not. The pontoon is 24 foot long, not sure of year till i get the title, trailer is like new, floor is great shape. I am able to get a motor for a decent price so most of my money would be invested in wiring, seats, lights, new top, audio, etc...So should i fix it up it up to a please boat or just be a old duck blind??? Please help!!!!

I'd go for it!  Looks to be in pretty good shape, overall.  I've done some that were much worse!

You could use it for a duck blind in the Fall, and a floating tiki bar in the summer? WinkLOL
Nice find!
