    Oh yea...no foam in those unless somebody else done it.
    Also a circular saw works awsome on aluminum.

    Well at least I don't feel bad now for using an overlapping panel repair.
    We look forward to seeing the results of your repair!

    Overlapping is fine by me, if that's the way it's done.

    I'm sure it's stronger. I was worried about the "Hydrodynamics" of the boat.

    I'll see when I get into it.

    Thanks to all.

    Here are a few pics of the damage and started repair.

    Had to get the rear in the air and stabilized, removed the 'runners' on the trailer, measured a few times for the cuts and then cut them out with an angle grinder, which was noisy but pretty fast.

    I'm having the aluminum rolled tomorrow and will probably finish up Thursday when it's warmer.

    The wall thickness is .080.

    I am going to lap the panels over the holes.

    Insides of the pontoons had a bit of water in them but looked good to me.

    Not totally finished. I have to put the trailer back together after I do a closer inspection of the welds, but here are the pics.

    I'm going to go over a few spots (starts and stops, mainly) with the tig.

    Panels were a bit thicker than .080, which is a good thing, but that's what the metal shop had. Cost $180 for the pair. 5' long and about 34-38 wide before rolling.

    They fit great and the spool gun made pretty quick work of it.

    Thanks,

    James
