    Катамаран из пластиковых бутылок – Понтон на воде / Catamaran of plastic bottles – Pontoon

    September 21, 2019


    Dear friends! This is our first voyage. With all that staff and tools we are heading to the bright future but still without our own motor. We are drawn by a boat! But still we are sailing!
    YOO-HOO! The subs are provided by UNESCO. Hello, dear friends!
    Today is September 22, 2017. And I would like to show you what we have at the moment, what is done. We built a catamaran, assembled the frame, attached the balloons and moved to a new assembly site, to a new location for construction. We were hauled by a motorboat as you could see. Well, now we are standing on the dock and go on working. During the construction we were so passionate about the work that we did not shoot the video. Therefore, I now I’ll show you what we have done at the moment. So, let’s start with the balloons. Initially, our balloons were just covered with a mesh. Then using standard plastic ties I attached two boards to each balloon on the top for a better distribution of pressure force. Here are these ties.
    Directly on the mesh. After that the frame of the catamaran was assembled and the system of bars, longitudinal and transversal beams that I processed earlier. They are connected with of studs – M14. On both sides. From the bottom of each stud I attached a lifting eye nut. Here you can see them. The rod runs through them. And it is fixed on both ends. After that I took a standard sling and screwed the balloon to the frame. On both sides. On the front part of the catamaran there is such a small bowsprit connecting the first and second beams. They will be used for shrouds and tension braces for sails. The second and seventh transversal beams have such supports for masts. Here is the rod that is attached to the balloons. It runs though the lifting eyes. Next to each lifting eye there are safety fasteners. If the main rod fails we have another one just for safety. Besides it will make the whole assembly solid. When the balloons were attached along the entire length, we fastened every cassette by means of ratchet straps. In order not to let the catamaran bend diagonally it was decided to stretch two crosswise rods under the deck. They are fastened by means of tension turnbuckles.
    Both. Here you can see our cover for balloons that is made of banner fabric. It is to reduce water resistance. Now we are stitching it. We are making the eyes so that we could fix it. And here we have two masts ready for installation. They are of A-shape. This is the front mast, and this is the rear one. On one side of the masts there are special steps to climb and reach the sun. The next stage is to install a transom piece for motor and control blades. Here on the rear side I attached a large bar and several boards to which the control blades will be attached. Subscribe to our channel. Give thumbs up. Follow our project. It’s just the beginning. And of course do everything that makes you joyful. See you.

    How to Sail – SH Pontoon Launch: Part 1 of 4: Launching

    September 14, 2019


    In this training video you will learn how
    to launch and recover your boat where pontoons are available. Pontoons are large floating
    platforms that are permanently installed, and make launching easy and keep your feet
    dry. They are generally only used on sheltered waters. Lets first look at Launching. Here we are using a laser which has the mast
    inserted into the sail and then the whole unit inserted into the boat with the sail
    flapping. Check all the drainage bungs are in place.
    Check for any obstructions on the slipway and look out for any slip or trip hazards
    that could arise during launch. Ensure the bow of the boat is secured with a painter,
    if you have a lifting rudder, put it in place with the blade raised and make sure the safety
    clip is fitted. This prevents the rudder from falling off in the event of a capsize. If your boat has a halyard system to hoist
    the mainsail, you should fit the sail to the boom and leave it rolled up in the bottom
    of the boat until the boat is in the water and tied up to the pontoon. Establish which direction the wind is blowing
    across the pontoon. To help you, look at the masthead burgees on your boat or other boats
    around you. Flags ashore are another indicator. Ripples on the water also blow from where
    the wind is coming from. The side of the pontoon that you must use whilst rigging is the side
    opposite to where the wind is blowing from. This is called the leeward, or downwind side,
    and keeps the bow of the boat firmly in the middle of the no go zone whilst you are rigging,
    and the sails simply flap. Do not try to position your boat on the side
    of the pontoon where the wind is coming from, this is called the upwind side or windward
    side. This is because the wind will try to blow you against the pontoon. This can cause
    damage to the boat or cause injury to yourself by trapping fingers and hands between the
    boat and the pontoon. However, when the wind is blowing up or down
    the pontoon you can position your boat on either side. Lower your boat down the slipway into the
    water, being careful not to slip, and untie the painter. Ask a friend to park your trolley
    in the dinghy park whilst you manoeuvre the boat to the leeward side of the pontoon. When you have manoeuvred the boat to the right
    position on the pontoon, secure the painter to the pontoon. In this example we are using
    a round turn and two half hitches. Alternatively you can simply loop the painter around a cleat
    in a series of figure of eights. Pull the boat towards you being careful not
    to trap your fingers between the boat and the pontoon. You are now ready to step aboard. The helmsman can then step aboard. Make sure
    you step as close as possible to the centreline, never step on the side tanks as the boat could
    tip over. Push the centreboard down fully to increase stability. If your boat has a
    halyard you can now hoist the sail. Back in our laser, with the mainsheet completely
    slack, attach the clew of the sail to the boom.
    Next, tighten the kicking strap slightly and tighten the clew outhaul. The next step is
    to lower the rudder blade and secure the downhaul. That’s it
    you are now ready to leave. Next, untie the painter and walk the boat
    as close as possible to the end of the pontoon to make for an easy exit. During rigging the boat will have automatically
    laid pointing head to wind firmly in the middle of the no go zone, and you won’t be able
    to sail. To get going it’s best to sail away from the pontoon on a close reach point
    of sailing as this keeps you well clear of the no go zone. To understand more about this
    subject see our Points of Sailing training video. To get to the close reach push the bow away
    from the pontoon and at the same time grab the tiller extension and mainsheet. Take a good look around to make sure there
    are no other vessels in the immediate area, step gently into the bottom of the boat as
    close to the centreline as possible to avoid unbalancing the boat. As you step aboard continue to push the boat
    out of the no go zone steering with the rudder to help. Finally, pull in the mainsail and
    sail away.

    2016 Princecraft Jazz 180

    September 10, 2019


    Brand new for 2016 Princecraft is introducing
    this- the Jazz 180. It’s a back to basics entry-level pontoon
    that has all of the quality of Princecraft construction but the entry-level price is
    something you’d be comfortable letting your kids out on. Princecraft has been making boats in Quebec
    for more tha 60 years and for many of those years they’ve been making pontoons of various
    sizes and luxury. The Jazz benefits from Princecraft’s tradition
    and experience. There’s no bumping, thumping, banging and
    rattling you sometimes get on an entry-level pontoon, and that’s thanks to Princecraft’s
    quality. They’ve been making pontoons for a while and
    even though this is entry-level pricing and entry-level performance, it’s top end quality. All Princecraft pontoons are made with 5052-H36
    aluminum alloy which is up to 25% harder than other pontoon alloys. The 2.5 inch, heavy-duty Z-bar cross channels
    and the 3/4 inch pressure treated wood deck give this pontoon rigidity and the V-shaped
    aluminum engine pod helps reduce water resistance so your little boat will run through the lake
    very smoothly. This is not like Princecraft’s Vogue line
    with tricked out interiors and incredible technological options- but that’s OK, that’s
    not why you get something like the Jazz 180. You get it because it’s fun, but also practical. It has basic but attractive dual benches at
    the bow, the two-toned material is highlighted with the Regal edition which includes a strip
    of red adding a nice little pop. Between the benches is another option, the
    removable table. The helm is basic but touches like the footwell
    cutout give comforts of a much larger boat so you’re not cramped behind the adjustable
    wheel. Along with lighted switches, we tested with
    the concert package which includes Jenson MS30 BT radio with auxiliary input. For those of us who love being out on the
    water but need some shade- the optional camper top is a wonderful addition that can stay
    up even when cruising around. Handling is what you’d expect from a small
    two-log pontoon, corners are intensely tight and you don’t bank into them. Again, you’re not buying something like this
    to be dazzled by performance. A respectable 22 mph – but it still stacks
    up pretty well. With a maximum capacity of 6 people you can
    put along the shore and you could definitely do some fishing off this, or you could cruise
    to a waterfront restaurant with the family. The Jazz 180 has all the makings of a very
    popular and functional small family pontoon that will surely be a big hit in Princecraft’s
    lineup.

    2017 Pontoon Boat AVALON EAGLE | Compact luxury

    September 10, 2019


    Avalon Eagle is living proof that great things come in small packages. And don’t let its easy-to-trailer size fool you… This is ‘the little pontoon that could.’ Eagle has the tight handling of a sports car and the plush interior and smooth ride of far-more-costly competitors. This wildly popular model is perfect for smaller lakes and budgets, all while delivering big water and big-budget thrills. And when it comes to style, Eagle will rock any sand bar party in the land. So think big by thinking small because you simply will not find a better pontoon for the money. And more proof, consider these two outstanding layouts: The Cruise Rear Bench floor plans feature both a port and starboard bow bench in addition to the aft seating area. The aft portion of the pontoon has a core seating area, and rear-facing bench. Quad Lounge floor plans contain port and starboard benches in both the bow and aft portions of the boat. If fishing is first and cruising is second, then check out the Quad Fish. If cruising is your aim, but you want a fishing-equipped space, then choose Rear Fish. Either way, you get a live well and rod holders. Our Bow Fish features two fishing chairs in the bow area of the pontoon. The aft portion of the pontoon contains a rear corner seating area and a rear-facing bench. Innovation, performance, and style. Experience Eagle.

    2017 Pontoon Boats AVALON WINDSHIELD | Our new pontooning option

    September 7, 2019


    Innovation, performance and style. At Avalon, that is our mantra and our mission. We see the pontoon boat as an evolving work of art, a luxury watercraft that has rightfully become the must-have boat for a new generation of enthusiasts. And now we are proud to announce the addition of a sleekly-designed, stainless steel tinted glass windshield. Adding windshield protection and style was a natural extension of Avalon and Tahoe’s mission to lead the pontoon industry, because for 30 years we have been at the forefront of the evolution of the pontoon from box-like floating docks to all-purpose water shredding machines. Crafted with luxury and performance unknown to similarly priced conventional V Hulls. With the introduction of our new windshield, the profile of our pontoon is sleeker, passenger comfort is easily sustained at high speeds, and the partition creates a true fore-and-aft that enhances and augments our efficient floor plans. If there is a downside to all this style, it’s that when you cruise your local waterway you had better plan on attracting a lot of attention. Experience Avalon
