With Instructables you can share what you make with the world, and tap into an ever-growing community of creative experts. Every time we go camping at Clear Lake near Mount Hood in Oregon, I used to jealously walk past all of the canoes, kayaks and rowboats dotting the shoreline of the lake, waiting to be taken out into the water for hours of fishing and paddle-borne awesomeness. We currently have a small Honda CR-V, and I just couldn’t imagine pulling a full-size boat on a trailer with it, so the idea of a small boat that I could transport on top of it was very attractive. So, being that I also love to experiment with projects outside of my comfort zone, I started to imagine building a small plywood boat that I could then fiberglass and make seaworthy, or, I mean lakeworthy. After researching several videos and websites (Hannu’s Boatyard is a classic website and the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife have an excellent instructional Youtube video), I decided to try and make my own 2 sheet plywood boat. So, with most of the thoughts and plans in my head, I quickly sketched a basic layout of the boat on a piece of paper and went to the lumber yard. Seriously, this homemade boat CAN be made with only two sheets of plywood, some fiberglass cloth and polyester resin (you can also use epoxy), screws, bondo, and paint, and will only cost you approximately $150 in materials. We used outdoor latex paint to coat the boat, and paintable high quality caulk to seal the joints. My racing thoughts have not gone that far yet but I’ll keep them to myself now, lol…Thanks again for this idea and video! The boat is aptly named due to the fact that it only goes 3-4 miles per hour at a pedaling rate of 50rpm.


91-year-old naval architect Phil Thiel, born in Brooklyn, now in Seattle has created human-powered boats since his teenage years. Sailors tend to want headroom, as it keeps from being bashed about in rough seas and saves one from an aching back. To Daniel, I love pedal boating because it is generally easier, safer and softer on the body than walking the same distance.
Wow, I admire him because in his early teenage years he created this human-powered boat through pedaling. I would probably make it pop up like earlier mentioned (either light weight materials in the pop up or heavy canvas), and might steal the idea of an extra solar panel or two and an electric motor (at least for use in slightly faster water, as most American waters get seasonally quick). Why not make your own custom boat by checking out these awesome posts on how to build a kayak or canoe!
These students used 50,000 plastic bottles to build a boat and it’s pretty impressive.
You can make a great boat out of one sheet of plywood.A  Watch our video here and see how we build a boat.
My Home Depot did not have latex paint, but they said they could order some for me, what brand did you use? This boat is not that efficient today but this is a great creation or invention history for me.


It’s quite a bit more expensive for the same size tube, but it does stick to wood long term (not sure about the plexy but sticks to fiberglass).
Thiel’s Friend Ship might be more suitable as a live aboard, although I believe it is designed for motor, rather than pedal, power. It’s made to be exposed to the elements and to be submersed for extended periods of time. I made my own pizza sauce with the tomatoes from our garden and the pizza dough recipe you all have on here. I was just thinking, if I build one, it will probably be the only one I build and I would want it to last.
It’s not the most elegant boat, and the keel helps when paddling, otherwise it is hard to control.
