    I guess they are trying to duplicate bass boats

    Cheap SOB that's not even 10% :)

    Was at the boat show in Huntingdon couple years ago. Was talking to a sales lady bout a pontoon and she showed me a Bennington that had a fiberglass top on top the pontoons. It had 3 300's on it. She said he wanted to be able to run 75mph in a pontoon. I couldn't afford the motors let alone the boat on a retirement income. But she was cute, my wife eventually came and drug me off outta there! ;)

    There are a couple docked at Peninsula on Barren with 300 on them. Saw one at the state dock with a 350.

    What folks buy is Absolutely none of my business if they can pay for it.
    But.
    I kinda thought the purpose of buying a Pontoon is to lazily cruise down the Lake.
    I guess I was Wrong.

    If I ever own a trip toon, which is more than likely never, it will be capable of making trips.

    Was eating at Rowena Marina bout two months ago and a black and tan tri toon came by with only about 5-6 feet of toons in the water. That thing was scooting so fast I couldn't grab the phone and get a good pic. Had twin big motors on the back. First I'd seen one planing high like that.

    They pass me all the time with my 24' toon and a 50 HP Merc. Everytime they pass by, I wonder if they had $70k cash laying around or are they in debt up to their eyeballs. I would be happy just to get a 115 put on mine someday.

    I just upped to a 150 from a 115. Haven't even broke it in yet. Hopefully Fri/Sat.

    I've seen those. What's the advantage of a triple toon? I'm ignorant.

    Growing up, a pontoon was a slow moving, tube pulling, drinking machine.
