Pontoon Boat Replacement Fence Paneling

Our Honest Opinion on Replacing Fence Paneling

Replacing the fence paneling is one of the easiest ways to improve the look of your boat. Vinyl is sometimes used because its inexpensive and easy to work with. After repeated complaints we stopped selling vinyl. Vinyl expands and contracts with temperature. It’s great for home siding but when fastened on pontoon fence it gets ugly.

.020 aluminum is superior to vinyl and just a few dollars more. It’s not subject to shrinkage and .020 is easy to work with. You can usually replace the whole fence paneling on boats up to 24’ for $199. We’ve sold 600+ rolls of .020. But we’ve had complaints that it can dimples easily. A rental operator who didn’t want to spend money for .030 used .020 and then complained loudly that after a year it showed signs of wear.

The .030 is what the new boat builders use. The blue, black and burgundy are gorgeous in .030. For a short time we sold colors in .020 but in colored paneling you could see the slightest blemish in .020. The .030 is strong, durable and will probably last 10+ years just like your old paneling.

If you’re rebuilding a boat for resale or just wanting to fix up an economy pontoon, the .020 is just fine. If you’re putting a new interior and a lot of money in a boat, spend the little extra for the .030.

  What You Need to Know

The fence on the boat above is all one height. Fence panel height ranges from about 12” to 20”. Our 24” .020 or 18” or 24 1/2” .030 paneling will all work. You can trim it to the right height with minimal scrap.  On the boat above, the stern paneling is 30” tall, the front panel is 18” tall. Our “regular” 24” paneling won’t work in the stern. Use 18” & 36” rolls of Colonial White. Or use the 49” tall, Blue, Black or Burgundy and cut it to heights.

Vinyl Fence Panel
 
We sold vinyl pontoon fence replacement, but we quit. The photo below shows why. The boat looks worse than this picture. On a hot summer day the vinyl E X P A N D S and contracts and can pull away from pop rivets or screws. The fence panel gets wrinkled and we had one case where the panel pulled out of the crimping and fell in the water. I’m not making this up.  Aluminum paneling is clearly superior but the problem for some sellers is that you have to buy and stock it in volume.  Many internet sellers of vinyl paneling just take your order and forward it to a third person for shipping.  Its easier for the seller but when the paneling looks like this, you won’t be happy.
