Thread: Pontoon Boat Storage

  1. Default Pontoon Boat Storage

    Hi All,

    I read in some of the archives that it's a good idea to leave a little air in your pontoons when storing them. What's up with that? Mine are urethane if that makes a difference. Do any of you store your 'toons with air in them? Have any of you had any damage because you stored them totally deflated?

    Thanks
    Inky

    Hi inky,

    Leaving a little air is intended for the PVC bladders not the Polyurethane. It is not a good idea to store bladders with sharp folds no matter what they are made of. I have stored Poly bladders in a closet with no air and they are going good after almost 12 years. If I had the space to store with a little air I might do that. Whether it extends their life I don't know if anyone knows that.

    And always be sure to rotate the air in your pontoons, the same as you do for the air in the tires of your car, for safety's sake!
