Pontoon Boat(aluminum) guru needed

13772 Views 10 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  javafish
My pontoons have water in them and there is no damage. I believe the bottom has a bad design. It's a Lowe 2006. The very bottom has a v design "crip) of sorts, running the entire length of the boat. This is where water must be getting in. Is there an aluminum boat guru around that can tell me what I need to do? There are plugs in the top of each chamber to remove water with some sort of pump.

help Please!

I had a problem w/ water in mine also,but my drain plugs were plastic w/ no sealant on them.After being on water for several hrs. mine had water in them.I didn't think my truck was going to pull boat up ramp.Next day @ home I removed drain plugs & water ran out of each pontoon for several minutes.I put some pipe sealant on plugs,used it for several hrs. next time out,removed plugs ,no water.I would also suggest using aluminum,brass or plastic plugs.Steel in aluminum=problems.
