Build my own Party barge/ Patio boat

Post by Sandy » Fri, 17 Apr 1998 04:00:00


I am looking for general plans, ideas or a kit to build a party barge
suitible for a calm river and 6 - 8 people.  Recommended books or
articles would be appreciated.,
I tried the online searches & mainly found dealers in new boats.
There was one website with the great shantyboats & another with tugs,
but they aren't quite what I am looking for.
I know some one asked this same question a while back, but I never saw
any answers.  I have been lurking for about a month and enjoy the
newsgroup.

I want to cruise the Wailua River in Style!

Try www.Glen-L.com, they have plywoood pontoon plans with some ideas
on what to put on the platform once built.

Thank you for the link.  The Huck Fin looks like a good  plan.
My husband is much better with a welder then a saw, though.  Any metal
pontoon boats out there?  The electric motor sounds interesting, too.
Thanks

go to a marina, ask the owner, measure a pontoon boat. i would tend to go to a
small marina that does more service than sales !
