Is it a good idea to take a 24' Pontoon out on LSC? I've seen them in channels, but I don't know if I've seen them out on the lake.

Would that be okay out there?

Is someone planning to take one to Jobbie? I would not want to cross the lake on a weekend in one but wouldn't be scared to take one from harsens to one of the bays or gull.

Yes, I believe that's the intent!

hey you might be on to something there.

Imagine a whole lake full of those. It'd be like a floating trailer park.

Somehow I have a feeling this is going to end up on a Jeff foxworthy show.

You might be a LSC ******* if your houseboat used to have wheels.

Seriously though, any other advice woud be appreciated. We don't want anybody putting themselves in danger!

... and no it's not me! Look for myself and Capt'n Chris on Mr. Big's boat.

Just go to Lake Norman, or Lake Cumberland! They're all over the place!

my only advice (if you're really serious) go real early in the morning when the lake is very calm. It can be done then pretty easily then as long as it isn't windy out.

I've crossed from the North Channel to Munchies Bay three times in a pontoon and each time, when we went straight into a wave, the nose goes down and the wave crashes and washes out the whole boat.

I'd advise against a pontoon in rough waters! It cannot break the wave, so the wave just crashes over the boat and floods it out.

Do not do it!

A pontoon floats on top of the water and any rough waters will be felt. A pontoon will not break the waves.
