My 30 ft. aluminum pontoons on my 1987 pontoon have holes!

My 30 ft. aluminum pontoons on my 1987 pontoon boat have holes in the bottom. Many holes. I've been told that welding them is going to be difficult and may not ''hold.'' I am at my wit's end because I just restored the rest of the boat!!

Clean and use marine JB Weld on the holes. If entire surface is pitted badly, fill with Jb,sand with 300 grit entire pontoons, clean with acetone, paint with self etching primer and paint with acrylic enamel paint (automotive), followed by 2 coats of clear. I used silver gray metallic on my 24 ft. Grumman over 5 yrs. ago and it still looks great! Easier to clean than aluminum too. Just coat it a couple times a yr. with spray wax! USSGSPOT

What should the tilt be set at for a 12 ft pontoon with a 15 hp motor

The tilt is dependent on weight in the boat, location of people, etc. The majority of people set it by feel. For a pontoon with low horsepower a general setting is set it so the propeller is horizontal to the floats (pontoons). Since you only have a 15hp on it I would set it this way. That way your propeller is pushing water straight back and all power is utilized in moving the boat and not wasted on raising or lowering the bow/front of the boat under power which is what your tilt up or down does. Raise it up your bow goes up. Tilt it down and your bow goes down.

I have a pontoon seam that may be leaking on my 20' pontoon boat. If so, how can I repair it? It's made of aluminum and I have a boat lift so can raise it out of the water. Something like "Liquid Steel" or...

I should think that if it is only a leak and not structural weakness or damage that epoxy of some sort would do the trick. make sure you dry and clean the metal well and degrease before applieing the material weather you apply in inside or out.
