After looking around quite a bit, here is a PVC Kayak Cart I made from various different designs I found online to suit my needs. This instructible will get you out on the water to fish without pulling too much cash out of your pocket. I recently purchased a 14' aluminum Springcraft with EZ loader trailer from a local classified site for $500.00.
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. In this part of the Greenland kayak instructable you will be getting the gunwales ready for building the deck of the kayak. Cut a patch from a shower curtain and use PVC pipe cement from your dad's garage to patch a leak in a PVC air mattress, inflatable boat, dry bag, etc. I'm starting this topic to both log my experiments and to petition contributions and ideas from others.
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. I have a large canoe (approx 17 feet long and 4 feet wide at the middle) and more often than not I am the only one physically able to move it (at least until the wee ones get bigger MUH HAHAhahahaha).
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. This instructible will teach you how to build a 17 foot long Greenland kayak that will weigh between 30 and 40 pounds and cost less than $300 in materials. Have you ever stood on the shore and looked out at people boating and wished you could be out there too? Alright, Finally got a little time to do some work so I made new seats and motor box for the back of the boat. This Instructable documents how I built a small sailing boat out of a mussel float, and advice on how to build your own! This is a small cabin boat that sleeps 1 person with lots of space and great to have for kids to play in even in the swimming pool.
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.
Sometimes I like to get on the water by myself and sometimes a canoe will suit me just fine. Living in Cambridge near the historical Charles river and watching people kayak down it's length, I nurtured a growing desire to be able to interact with the natural structure on my own schedule. Epilog Challenge VI: I have entered this into the Epilog challenge please vote on it if you like the build. If you are not looking for super-speed, or want a quiet way to fish, get around the lake, or extend your camping trips, an electric canoe is the way to go! We haven’t really used this dinghy much in Vizag, the water here is just too polluted (and smells of ammonia and sulphur) to want to go sailing in harbour and the beach surf is too rough to risk putting to sea from the beaches.
The Paper Jet is designed primarily as a training boat, with the intention that it can cater for a wide range of sailing skills. The same features that I designed into it for club use will allow a family to use one hull as the platform on which Dad can have his excitement of blasting across large expanses of water but junior can sail the same boat (if he can pry it loose from Dad's grip) with a smaller rig and at slower speed.
I did not try to produce a design that will sail the pants off any of the other skiffs or single-handers. Much of the rigging uses details borrowed from gaff rigs, using lashings and soft eyes instead of stainless steel hardware.


The mast, boom and bowsprit are hollow timber, constructed by the birdsmouth method but modified to produce a very attractive striped appearance. For those wanting an easier rig to build, the wooden mast can be replaced by a round aluminium tube with rivetted track. After completing the hull skin, it can be released from the building stocks for the remainder of the work. The detailing that I worked into this design is simple but it gives loads of opportunity for showing off your woodworking and finishing skills.
The hull shape is hard chine, with a V-bottom that twists from vertical at the bow to almost horizontal at the transom. This boat will give fun sailing to one person in the Lite format and two teenagers or a lightweight couple with the Standard rig. In 2007, my boat cost $4150 including kit, other materials and equipment to the stage of sailing with the Lite and Standard rigs. Although intended as a training boat, the Paper Jet is not suited to learning the most basic sailing principles single-handed.
Swam around to the rudder regained breath then went around to the center board grabbed the righting line about in line with center board put a knee on the center board and put my hands on the wing and gave a little pull and she came right up.

E-commerce site with over 250 designs from some of America's most respected designers. You can save a lot of money and build a comparable frame with as many options as you desire! I live in a town which is surrounded on three sides by water, in the middle of a river estuary. You will be shaping them and you will also be marking them for later installation of the deck beams. The hardest decision was to design my own or build from a set of plans that were already available. Problem is, I had one canoe of our own, and a truck, but no canoe rack (and didn't want to drive all the way to the river with a 15 foot canoe hanging out the back). We will show step by step the entire process using materials and techniques proven over many successful rebuilds. This project took me about four days working on and off and in a rush, so there were many corners cut and compromises made. Item's neededHot glue gunWaterproof led strip from ebay12v 6800ah lithium battery The project cost's $40 total. 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! Other times the weather is not suitable for a canoe, too windy, too wavy or I just want to cruise the waterways a little more efficiently.
I would use the laser to help me with some really cool projects like laser cut wood objects, led illuminated signs, engraved tile and much much more.
I wanted a boat that will allow a club to race it as a class boat that will give exciting sailing to those who have the skills but will also allow less experienced sailors to develop their sailing skills in the same boat at a much lower level of performance. It is fast and it is exciting to sail with the Turbo rig, but from the outset (this boat was in the back of my head for over 10 years) it was intended to provide an economical path for sailors to progress between boats like the Optimist and the costly single-handed skiffs without having to trade up their boat each time to go the next step. The wooden mast has two interchangeable topmasts and two mainsails of very different sizes. These tie the standing and running rigging to the hull and boom with greater strength than thru-bolting stainless straps to the wooden structure, also reducing cost and weight. This is achieved with alternating strips of cedar (for lightness) and poplar (for strength and stiffness). The entire boat is built from 4mm plywood, so it is very light and needs more internal support than is normal with thicker plywood. The stocks continue to serve as a support for working on the boat either right way up or upside down, depending on the work that is being done. I used cedar for lightness along gunwales and for the wing leading edges but capped them with poplar to give a nice contrast while adding strength and stiffness to the structure.


The wings are intentionally low and horizontal so that the leeward rail will immerse if the boat is over-powered in gusts, adding buoyancy to leeward to help her recover. The standard plan package comprises 16 fully detailed drawings, full size paper patterns of all of the plywood components and how to set them out on the plywood sheets, as well as a 50 page manual with 200 photos and step-by-step instructions. In the Concourse de Elegance the judges awarded her an "Outstanding Innovation" award for the combination of features included in her design.
We recommend double-handed training until the student has enough expertise to sail single-handed. After first learning basic sailing on a Sunfish he has progressed to his Paper Jet with the Lite rig and sent the report below on 21st September 2009. I was out in 9-13 knot winds got her going fast enough to get the out haul lines howling in the wind. With the main sheet uncleat she waited patiently while I swam back around to the back climbed in over the rudder. These images can be used on any given URL or website and a link back to this site must be provided. 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. They can build a Paper Jet at the cheapest level or the level that they think that they can handle and progress from there.
These items, along with a jib, asymmetrical spinnaker and retractable bowsprit, are used in different combinations to give the different rigs. The sail track is a length of plastic pipe that is split along one edge and epoxied to the mast and faired in at the sides or an awning track can be used. If it is to have the buoyant characteristics of the wooden mast then the aluminum tube must be sealed both ends and at all rivets and rigged with external halliards.
I did this by fabricating a full-length plywood ladder-frame backbone that has interlocking transverse plywood frames.
If you intend to build from a kit, do not buy the plans from us, the package will be included in your kit order that you make with the kit supplier, except for the full-size patterns.
The panels will be pre-cut for you and held in the sheets by tabs, ready for you to release them. A self-tacking jib was intentionally left out of the concept so that there is something for the jibhand to do in sailing the boat. For single-handed training first learn the basics on a Sunfish or similar boat then move to the more performance oriented Paper Jet.

If you will be uncomfortable hiking out on a flattish deck then I recommend that you rather build the Argie 15 for a more comfortable sailing experience.
Meanwhile, as long as Dad is not out sailing, the kids can use the same boat at a more basic level.
The mast is supported at gunwale level by an X-shaped brace that distributes the loads, stiffens the hull and gives two mast positions. This necessitated securing the framework to building stocks for rigidity until the hull skin was complete. Kits are available from suppliers in various countries, to be ordered directly from those suppliers. Help to maintain this site by adding to your favourites and referring this site to a friend. This allows a quick change between the standard and Turbo rigs because everything from the hounds downward remains unchanged when the topmast is changed. With the wooden mast she floats on her side and waits while lines are uncleated etc for righting and the immersed wing prevents her from blowing away downwind.
These wings are designed to cancel out that tendency and also serve as additional planing surfaces.
It does so without resorting to hi-tech building methods that are beyond the ability of most home builders. With time and skill improvements they can move into more costly boats if they feel the need.
