We got the boat out of winter storage and spent the last two weekends working on the boat to get it ready for the August trip Spent the first weekend sanding the poontoons to remove acummulated scum, algae, and mud to prepare for coating, then coated the pontoon bottoms with SteelFlex, an epoxy coating we purchased in Florida this winter. Hopefully, this with reduce water drag and increase fuel efficency.
