I am currently in the design stage of a pontoon boat that will be powered by an electric
outboard motor, with lighting and a few other novelties to a scale of 1/6th or 2" = 1', going
to put a Ken & Barbie doll onboard hence the scale I have chosen, it will be based on a
21' x 8 1/2' plan I found on the internet. I thought about using 4" drain pipe for the pontoons
which would be the equivalent to a 24" pontoon as most of the Tracker brand full size ones are
fitted with. I decided to go with twin v-type pontoons instead which will be a combination of foam
and wood construction. Sill in the drawing stage at this time but will be cutting wood in a few more
days to start the actual construction of this project. This is being built for my wife that always would
have liked to have her own boat to play with when we go to the lake............Stay tuned I will be doing
a build thread here on RCU under the general boats discussion.
