Comments: I am trying to find some of these Half Ponton sections any help would be greatly appreciated. Here is a link to a picture http://www.ugliboat.com/Ponton_Boats.html

The aluminum alloy half-ponton has an effective length of 18 feet 6 inches, is 6 feet 8.5 inches wide, and 2 feet 10 inches high. The bow of each half-ponton is raised approximately 7 inches higher than the stem to prevent the ponton from swamping when rafting in swift currents. The half-ponton weighs approximately 650 pounds and has a displacement of 6.25 tons. Two half-pontons are joined stem to stem to form a whole ponton which supports the light floating bridge or raft.

Comments: I am looking for a history of pontoon bridges. I have a great grandfather who was trained to build pontoon bridges in Prussia for the Austro-Prussian War. I'm trying to get an idea of what one looked like for a book I am writing. I wondered if any of you might be familiar with the military history of pontoon bridge building. Would appreciate any thoughts.
