Kevin Sadler wrote about it:

“Pontoon is an unusual mixture of a rectangular plate with 2 very simple H shaped plates at 90º to it and held in place by another 2 more simple burr pieces. There is a lot of possible sliding to be done and at first I couldn’t solve it without using rotations of the burr pieces. This is rather uncharacteristic of Pelikan’s work and I suspected I had cheated… a quick look at the Burrtools file revealed that the puzzle was solvable using linear moves only and they are very well hidden. I tried again and after a fascinating dance of 22 moves I had the first piece out. This is a great puzzle to be solved both with rotations and with just linear moves, well worth space in your collection and on your shelf.”
