Abstract : It was concluded that the four basic types of boat floats, made of wood, steel pontoons with wood decks, concrete and fiberglass pontoons with wood decks, will have service lives approximating 18, 20, 25 and 30 years respectively. Initial costs of boat floats, standardized to 20 ft. x 60 ft. deck size, in order of magnitude are: wood - $14,402, fiberglass - $20,064, concrete - $20,279, steel - $22,077.
