Picked up my new pontoon frame yesterday. Super happy with how it turned out, the guy who built it does top quality work. Got some 10' pontoons on the way for it, just need to pick up oars and a seat to get her finished. Got some ideas for rod holders and other modifications so I'll post pics as I get it completed. Hopefully be on the water in the next few weeks for summer steelhead!

I wonder if a standing platform could be added on there? Looks pretty good, does it have an anchor system?

I was thinking about a standing platform but as of now it will be mostly used to taxi from hole to hole. The anchor system is still in the mail so I'll install it when it gets here. Anyone know where to get some good oars in the 8 foot range?

If you don't mind the drive, ORS in Eugene on Franklin Blvd. has everything you need for your toon. Nice looking ride, you are in for a great spring and summer...
