    OPINIONS PLEASE....Pontoon Boat Log Sealing!

    Ok Guys, I have a 24 year old Pontoon. It only has 300 hours on it and is basically like a new boat with the exception that the Logs seep water, more than I like.
    There is noticeable pitting in the Aluminum below waterline and I found several leaks by pressurizing the tanks.
    OK, so I bust out the TIG and there's too much buildup of Aglae on the inside of the tanks from holding years of moisture to do any welding!
    My Question is what do you think of spraying the complete tanks with a Smooth Bedliner, w/o the texture???

    The company Durabak can be had with or without the texture and in different colors!

    Are the Logs the U-shape. If they are there is no good way to stop the leaking. My uncle has a 1988 Lowe with these logs. To fix this issue we put bilge pumps in both logs with an auto switch.

    No, they're round and in 4 chambers each!
    That Polypropylene Bed Liner should seal anything!

    Should hold/seal unless it flexes a lot .
