Trick Out Your Pontoon For Summer Parties

About Me
Really Enjoying Your Time Away From Work

A few years after I retired, I realized that I was spending more and more time laying around the house and less time doing the things that I loved. I started thinking carefully about what I could do to change things, and it was very apparent to me that I needed to focus more of my energy on getting outdoors and enjoying my free time. I started learning more about recreation and sports, and within a few weeks, I found myself trying new adventures with friends like kayaking and bungee jumping. This blog is here to help other people to learn how to enjoy their time away from work to make the most of their lives.

If you own a nice pontoon boat, and you're getting ready for a huge summer blast, then you need to look at getting some cool pontoon accessories that will make the lake party a huge success. It's not enough to just have the pontoon boat, you want to trick it out with lots of cool stuff that will make for a really fun experience for all your guests. Here are a few things you should consider.

Flood Lights For Nighttime Parties

The party doesn't have to stop once the sun goes down. But if you don't have good lighting, people will not be able to go swimming. That's why it's so good to get really top notch floor lights. These can be turned on once the sun sets and illuminate the exterior of the boat. Swimming in the dark is not so much the problem, the problem is when people are trying to get on and off your pontoon. You don't want them slipping on the ladder and getting hurt. A good flood light will provide enough light so that people can find the ladder from the water when it's time to come in and won't slip and hurt themselves.

More Comfortable Seats

If you're stock seats are not that comfortable, maybe they are old, then you should go ahead and swap them out for a new set of really plush and comfortable seats. You don't want to have people sit around uncomfortable for the entire day. And since you are going to want swap them out at some point, you might as well get them replace for your big bash on the lake. Alternatively, if the seats are alright, but you are concerned about having lots of people on the pontoon boat and worried that the might spill food and drinks, or maybe even drop cigarettes and burn the seats, you could always invest in a really nice pontoon seat cover set. These will protect your seat fabric from any damage.

Folding Pontoon Ladder

Of course one of the most important accessories that you can get for your pontoon boat is a folding ladder. A fixed ladder is going to be a bit of a problem if you need to dock your boat in a shallow bit of water, or if you pull it out and hook it up to your car at the end of the day. But you need a ladder. You don't just want people to  jump into the water and then struggle to climb back on board. Not only is that uncomfortable, it can be downright dangerous. So, the solution to these problems is to get a folding ladder. These ladders can be folded up when you are done and stowed on board when you are ready to head back to shore.
