Make your own quick and easy zip tie & ply mini boat - maximum fun for the least money!
Intro, Braving the elements?I'm entering this build for the 'brave the elements' contest as this project has enabled me to get out there and experience the elements in my local environment. I have recently finished building a cedar strip canoe, and had barrels full of thin, small pieces of cedar and ash left over.
Spring was just starting to arrive in northern Minnesota, and after a long winter, I was getting anxious to get back out into my little wood shop and start another project.
Salt water, sunshine, and thousands of miles on a car roof rack can shorten the life of any boat. I have a 13-foot kayak and a crowded garage, and horizontal storage (using a pulley system intended for a bike) was problematic.
This Instructable will describe the construction of a heavy duty milk jug raft built out of recycled materials and capable of supporting over 700 lbs. Have you ever stood on the shore and looked out at people boating and wished you could be out there too? This Instructable documents how I built a small sailing boat out of a mussel float, and advice on how to build your own! Today we're going to do a very quick, but functional, repair on a broken hand caned seat in a canoe.
I tried to build the lightest and cheapest (~150€ total material bill) sail-boat I could come up with.


I've been wanting to combine my two favorite hobbies - woodworking and sailing for a long time, so I thought I'd build a boat. I set out to make a simple rudder that did not cost the typical $250 but at the same time was a bit more effective than a plank on a stick.
Browsing Imgur one day I saw some guys that made a duct tape canoe, and decided to try my hand at the same. OLD TOWN LAPSTRAKE MY NAME IS RICH AND I RECENTLY BOUGHT AN OLD TOWN LAPSTRAKE WHICH NEEDS SOME WORK. One thing I wanted to do was build a kayak cart for when there is a distance from the car to the water.
Unfortunately by their nature they tend to be rather utilitarian and bulky looking and are not always very aesthetic to have sitting on your deck or dock. I live in a town which is surrounded on three sides by water, in the middle of a river estuary. The pieces of wood were so small and thin I had been burning them in our patio fire pit just to keep them from taking up space in the garbage.
A hand crafted ultra-light weight or wooden canoe needs specific preventive care at least twice a year. These big buttons let you do it even faster because you don't have to wrap anything or poke them through holes. It's always fun, whether you're putting around the cottage dock, paddling through white caps in the ocean or going on river trips.


We got an idea to make a sailboat out of items that we had around the house and bamboo that grew next to us.
This project took me about four days working on and off and in a rush, so there were many corners cut and compromises made. Although this is not the correct way to repair these seats, it definitely works and will get you through until you can buy a new seat or properly hand cane the broken one.

When a regatta starts the box sounds the horns at predetermined intervals: 5 minutes before the start, 4 minutes before the start, 1 minute before the start and at the instant of the start. It's a simple design where the boat sits inside of the loop and stays on by being pushed forward.
The camp and canoeists were running into trouble keeping themselves dry while launching and retrieving the boats! It was really beat up on the outside but the inside showed it had some good bones, ribs to be more specific. I have to look at the water every time I cross a bridge or pass a lake, and I envy the people I see on the water.
