  1. Excellent table C'pn, thanks! And thanks for all responses...
  2. ok, the math is still a little deep for an old-timer, so let me put the question another way; how much would my 2 pontoons support if they were 8 feet long and 6 inches in diameter? How about 8 inches? And 10?
  3. Ok, I want to build a small boat which will consist basically of a floating platform supported by 2 pontoons which are 8 feet in length. What diameter do the pontoons have to be to support a total weight (platform plus load) of 700 lbs.? Any help would be appreciated, especially if someone could provide an easily understood formula or explain in simple terms how they arrived at the answer. I'm really not THAT dumb but it's been a long time since high school...
