Whose pontoon?

8 posts in this topic

Few weeks ago I had to back up and do a double-take as I drove past Wilsons Marine. There was a new pontoon boat on the side lot near the road with ---TWO-- 200HP Evinrude ETec engines on the rear. It was only there a day or two, so I assume it's on the lake now.

How fast can a 400hp pontoon boat troll?

That was probably one of the resident barges on the lake,(just monster-sized pontoon boats) they haul building materials and such to the islands and no-road access mainlands.

Did you notice the size of the thing ?

I saw this at the Landing in July. The guy punched it when he left. Would have put most bass boats to shame....

Yikes......

No, this was a plushly appointed recreational pontoon of the brand that Wilson Marine carries. Not a work barge! Rough guess about a 28-footer. The Evinrudes were mounted on the rear of each tube, and had counter-rotating props.

I think the family that owns Premier Pontoons has a place on west end of Vermilion. Their brochures sometimes have pictures shot on vermilion.

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
