Have you ever went camping on your pontoon boat? If not, this summer is the time. Our Upper decks make for great camping coverage. Because our upper deck kits are not just coverage, but are designed to create a second story on a pontoon boat; it makes the perfect hard top tent. To seal the first deck in, you can always pin tarps and other tent like fabric to create the perfect tent out on your boat. The possibilities to a J's Upper deck are endless. We are not only offering a DIY Upper deck kit, but we are offering a product that will expand the possibilities and excitement of your boat. Get excited again about your boat, and go camping!
And when you do decide to take your boat out for a lake camping trip, you'll need to make sure you bring J's list of essentials.
One more thing... an upper deck makes for a better tent than any other bimini canopy because with J's Upper decks, you can get up on top and check out the stars. Maybe, even see a shooting star!
J's Essential Camping Gear List:
Sun decks are not bimini canopies, or a similar fabric cover, instead they are sturdy aluminium built structures that provide full sun coverage. The structure is strong enough to hold extra gear, and is built with a lighter aluminum. It is like a roof for the pontoon boat, and is designed to keep the boat and passengers protected from weather damage with full coverage from the sun. It is not designed to hold passengers but can hold the weight of gear and luggage.
Our upper decks are like an extra level on your boat. They create more boat capacity for gear and extra passengers. The upper decks are built with a thicker aluminum to handle multiple passengers and actually increase the size of your boat. You can stand, party, sun bathe, sit, etc. on the upper decks. You can even dive off an upper deck. It is not just a pontoon accessory, but designed and constructed as a pontoon expansion.
An upper deck is not a bimini canopy, nor is it a regular sun shade. It is not a sun deck per say, and it is not a roof.
An upper deck actually
adds a second level to your boat.
Yes, that means your little 8ft pontoon boat just turned valuable when you built a do it yourself upper deck kit by j's upper decks, on it.
The Upper deck is also not a temporary structure like a bimini canopy or another top would be. This is an aluminum built deck. You can stand on it, ride on it, walk all over it and sun bathe. Or go wild and crazy and use it as a dancing platform. It is that sturdy.
even though an upper deck does the same thing a bimini canopy, a sun shade and any other temporary top for pontoon boats does-----it’s nothing like them.
So don’t think of an upper deck as an alternative to a bimini canopy, think of it as sooo much more.
And when you do take your pontoon boat out, you’ll notice so has everyone else:
And your view might look something like this:
you've got a bimini canopy blocking your view:
but you imagined it would be something like this:
so how can you get your dream view to become a reality? Simple, get up on an upper deck.
Oh, and with an upper deck,
you'll attract this kind of party:
Celebrating America the right way.
