Assembly of a Cimarron Pontoon Boat
have a similar boat, but it's been a year or so since I used it. Here's what I remember.
it all out first. It's very confusing until you get a visual. The seat
rests on two bars. These bars span the two pontoons. I believe they use
pins, rather than bolts to secure it. You probably have a basket and
maybe a trolling motor mount. Get rid of the mount, unless you plan on
using it. If you do, it attaches to the rear basket. The basket mounts
to the back of the chair and rear bar with bolts.
Next, the leg
holders slide in and there should be pins to hold them in place for the
right distance. If there is a stand up plate and a casting bar, you're
on your own on how to attach them. Obviously they go in the front, but
I have no idea how they are attached.
Mine had an anchor, but this was a huge hassle. Much easier to pull to shore than park in the water.
is probably a mesh type piece that fits under or around your seat with
bungies or hooks. It may have a fish measure on it. If it does, that
goes to the front.
The oars are merely pinned in at a
comfortable spots. There should be oar "stops," that slide over your
oars. Again, you have to adjust the length to how long your arms are.
They don't slide too easily. And, they are needed so your oars don't
slide off into the water.
The side bars should have a hump to rest the pontoons on. Buy a double pump and save some time, (or an electric pump). The following is the most important fact of all,
You have two bladders in each pontoon. Inflate them BOTH. Air up one
from the front, then the other from the rear, back and forth until the
pontoon is ready to burst. This prevents a disaster. If one deflates or
is punctured, the other one has enough air to support you to shore.
Strap them on and you're ready to go. And I would suggest a practice
run in calm water first. They are a little awkward at first. Good luck
