Little project

 Little project I've been working on the last couple of months, pontoon for our caravan park up the coast. The last one we had was left out during winter, broke the mooring and is probably in Madagascar. 

Hopefully she floats lol.

Looks impressive. Place an outboard on it and it will double as a barge.

How many chambers does it have, and are they simply air tight or filled with foam?
