Anyone out there want a free pontoon? Not an old junker, but a brand new Qwest LS Splash Pad? Any takers?

Every year at the annual Houseboat Expo, our sister publication Houseboat magazine partners up with Apex Marine to give away a loaded pontoon to the winner of the annual Poker Run.

"Giving away a free boat from Apex Marine has brought a lot of excitement to the On Water Houseboat Expo," says show producer Greg Larsen. "It's been great for the industry to get houseboaters excited about pontoons."

Apex Marine specializes in pontoons in smaller lengths, which makes it easier for the winner to tow it home at the end of the show. The Qwest LS Splash Pad was a new model for 2013 and it's a great multi-use boat that includes a bar with stool seating. The stools easily slide out, creating a huge swim platform for the kids to jump back and forth into the water. Features like these made it the perfect boat to give away at the On Water Houseboat Expo.
