With shows like “Pimp My Ride” having a very successful history on TV, it seems that Minnesota lakes are producing television quality pontoons.

What? Yep, these floating party boats are now becoming the latest method of transportation to become customizable, and one Coon Rapids man has taken the title for “Coolest Pontoon”.

Robert McCluskey takes his fully customized pirate ship inspired pontoon out on Coon Lake and it is quite a hit with the locals.

“The dang thing takes so much maintenance and money to operate,” said McCluskey, the commodore of the ship. “Once you get started on something like this, you can’t quit.” McCluskey tells the Star Tribune.

Take a look at the ship in action:
