Why should you trust my recommendations on the above pontoon accessories?
That’s a great point, so let me try to put your mind at ease.
I’ve been a pontoon boat owner since 2016 which might not sound like a long time, but believe me, in the life of a pontoon owner it’s an absolute age.
In that time things have gone wrong, things have needed fixing, parts and gear has needed upgrading, and there have been accessories and equipment that I have wanted to add to my boat.
I’ve tried out a lot of stuff of my Bennington, some of which has been exceptional, some not, and some accessories falling somewhere in-between.
I believe that gives me a unique insight into a lot of the products on the market, and that insight is expanded with my heavily involved in pontoon forums and Facebook groups.
In those online forums I speak on a daily basis to other boat owners who have tried different pontoon accessories to me.
As a result, all of the recommended gear on this page I’ve either used or have had feedback on.
Before I recommend anything on Pontoonopedia, I make sure to ask the opinions of thousands of boat owners across the United States and Canada in order to get a fair representation on the pontoon boat accessories listed on this website. After all, what works for one person might not be a great fit for another which is why you see me publishing comments from other owners so often on the product reviews.
I won’t list the most expensive accessories, but instead only recommend items that work well, look good, last a long time, and are competitively priced.
It’s expensive enough owning a pontoon boat, so I hope that the guides above will take a lot of the hard work of research away from you, and mean you end up with the best product to suit you and your pontooning lifestyle.
