Basic Rule of Thumb for Pontoon Boats 

One third of the pontoon boat sits in the water so the deck of 23 inch diameter pontoon is approximately 15.5 inches above the water and the deck fo a 27 inch pontoon boat is approximately 18 inches above the water. These measures vary slightly due to the boat load: fuel on board, passengers, equipment on board, etc.
