I might have room for a small driftwood burning cookstove on the 28 ft super Huck pontoon I'm planning.Got the plans from Gayle last year so it'll be interesting. :D

on the super huck you would have room for a little stove like this with room on top for a stew pot or coffee pot.
This was called the Mini Cub wood stove "designed to heat boats, cabins and RV's up to 40Measures only 11 x 12 x 10.5!Produces 6000 to 14000 BTU's!"
I saw it advertised for $190.00.

:D Just a tad small.Been reading the "cold-molded" boat building book quite a bit lately and trying to figure out how many fir boards I would need to chop up into smaller pieces to laminate back together to cover over pontoon frames(running at opposing angles for strength)using lots of epoxy.Might just build a smaller version to get a handle on the tecnique maybe 18-20 ft.Got my 15 evinrude that used to be on my steel pontoon.It :D needs another boat.

:D Got "Chug back in the lake today!Had a few problems with the motor -it kept quitting.Might be water in the fuel as I left it all winter with half a tank.Gas smell was really strong and had to run both blowers.Checked for leaks but none and bilge smelled like sawdust so must be motor loading up :roll:

:D Had a heavy all-day rain a couple of days ago-checked bilges -still bone dry.must have the right boat angle.I made the enclosed bulwarks so they drain through (the bulwarks are open at bow).I had problems when "Chug was sitting on trailer as water found a crack to leak into pilothouse. :D the little straps hanging down are old seatbelt ends-I use those when the stern enclosure curtains are rolled up.Knew those old cars sitting around would come in handy some day. :D
