Construction & Components
·Enlarged 23" x 25" U-shaped pontoon logs w/ Maxi-Float foam and smooth, straight sides have higher volume than 23" round logs for maximum flotation and superior ride. See Sun Catcher Construction link for more information.
·All aluminum motor pod is bolted to pontoon cross-members with 12 point attachment and large diameter bolts for added strength and rigidity.
·Fuel Separator helps to eliminate excess water from gas and gives peace of mind and consistent performance.
·Marine grade pressure treated plywood deck has limited lifetime warranty for years of care-free family boating.

·Through bolted floors to deck extrusions, .100 gauge nose cones, and heavy duty deck extrusions on 16" centers are just a few of the extra touches that make the Sun Catcher Pontoon line the Best Value on the Water.
·G3 ADVANTAGE WARRANTY adds value with an extended warranty on all external seams for the "duration of ownership" for the original retail purchaser.
