Why? Well, an upper deck does not just make a boat look good and more enjoyable; rather it keeps the sun off skin, for someone sitting on the lower deck. And for someone who will not admit they have fair skin, well, it is a good tool to have.
The upper deck kit we provide is also an investment. We have spent years testing and creating the perfect frame that will hold up to weather, resist decay and last a long time. We went through some prototypes and came up with an all-aluminum frame that holds a significant amount of weight. It can hold enough weight for several people to have a party.
See that is exactly what an upper deck kit is. It is a do it yourself tool to use to have more fun on the boat, to protect skin, and really to expand any potential any pontoon can have. I know it seems silly, why get an upper deck kit when you can get a bimini canopy that does the same thing—create shade.
As we have said before, an upper deck is not just sun coverage; it is a roof and a second story to the main deck. Comparing a bimini canopy to an upper deck is like comparing an orange to an apple. They may both be fruit (create shade), but an upper deck is so much more. It is a jumping off platform for your kids, a place to camp under, or a place to get some clarity and see the lake with new altitudes.
Don’t waste your time with a bimini canopy that you’ll have to replace in a year or two, if you are looking for sun shade. Get a tool that’s sturdy, last awhile, and has more potential. An upper deck for your pontoon boat is the right choice, and J’s Upper Deck do it yourself kit is the perfect custom fit for your pontoon boat.
