www.pdbmagazine.com PDB Pontoon & Deck Boat JULY 2014 40 We here at PDB have personally tested the Pontoon Water Glide and we have had amazing results. This aftermar- ket accessory can be added to any pontoon to increase your speed, fuel efficiency and over- all handling. Best of all, you can safely install it yourself in about three hours. This story starts back in 2009 when the Schaefer family purchased a 21- foot pontoon with a 115hp outboard motor on the back for fishing. "I soon realized that if I could just get a little more speed, we could use it as our only boat for all our water activi- ties," says current PWG President Dave Schaefer. "Also, after towing my son on a wakeboard and realizing how long it took to turn the boat around to pick him up, I really wanted to increase the maneuverability of the boat." Dave looked into and found the Pontoon Water Glide and after install- ing one himself, he increased his top speeds from 23 to 32 miles per hour. The family was amazed and ended up purchasing the company, which they still run today.

Whether it comes straight from the dealer or it's 10 years old, the reason you bought it is because it's perfect for you. But aftermarket products are an opportunity to bump the perfection up a level. With the majority of these products, the inventors were regular pontooners who came up with an idea to improve their boat and then realized there were oth- ers that could benefit too. These ideas are a reflection of the Ameri- can entrepreneurial spirit at its best. Pontoon Water Glide
