Re: Use Your Heads

I know my folks had a pontoon boat years ago and the aluminum pontoons became corroded and had to be replaced. I'd check for corrosion as well.

I keep my boat at Braitos too

As mentioned, Ryan at White and Sons Boatworks may be able to help or at least recommend someone who can:

I run a locomotive air brake shop. We test reservoirs regularly, add water to the pontoons and then pump up with a bike pump leak should be very easy to find.

Re: Use Your Heads

Someone said blowing smoke in them would work. Thats a good idea but I got to find a machine. Heard some RV places might have em.

Yes, thought of that but my buddy had the prostate gland rotor routed the day before and I'm in a chair so we were in no condition to be crawling around under it. Come to think of it, he was so sore, I probably missed the only opportunity I'll ever have to beat the **** outa someone.

If it does we used windex to spray around the welds and likeley spots to see if it bubbles like you would check a propane tank or house gas line. You can add more air slowly to help locate the leaks if needed. This should work I would think.
Good Idea. now I have to figure out how to get it off the runners on the trailer.
