We starting planning for the summer holidays… the sun is up and shining, and we are in a sea mood already. If you happen to have 3 wine corks, you can even make a boat (they started closing wine bottles with platic ones all too often). With Instructables you can share what you make with the world, and tap into an ever-growing community of creative experts. I'm starting this topic to both log my experiments and to petition contributions and ideas from others. This is trivial but, still something to consider.The greater the airpressure in the inflated chambers, the stiffer the vessel will be. My thoughts for the initial design are (loosely) based on using the RB-15 while in the Army. One of the objectives of this project is to create something that can be built with readily available (and low cost) materials. I'm starting this topic to both log my experiments and to petition contributions and ideas from others. The basic premise, to build a strong, inexpensive inflatable boat. I am trying to figure out how to cut out the material to make the cones on the front and back of each tube and seal them correctly. A big thing with the canvas was to try to have something that could be built with a trip to a local hardware store.
Why not impregnate the canvas with silicone caulking like the kind of stuff you would use around a bathtub or shower. A couple years ago I priced epdm rubber roof coatings in bulk 5 gallon pails for around $150. If the main negative factor of the low buck little inflatables is sturdyness, why not just make a strong material cover to go over one you have, maybe have long patch of tear proof material built onto the outside of the cover, and be sure to rely on the strong areas when you have to board on some nasty bank. I had a cheap little inflatable that I fished in off and on for a few years -- Sevylor, made in France. Another abrasion and snag shield idea that crossed my mind is using some of that roll-rubber they use for commercial roofing. First, take a bamboo skewer and pierce one side of the container about half-way up the side.
Now, if you want a smoke stack on top of your paddle boat, you'll cut a small piece of tape and wrap it around the cup. I have been looking at building a boat for a bit now, I am looking at the Vagabond 20' or 23' as a trailer sailor, large enough for a weekend sail with the kids and small enough to haul.
If so what did you find challenging about the build or what improvements would you suggest? Location: Australia It might be a bit too sporty for your requirements but a current design for home building that is gaining momentum is the i550.
Nice looking craft, I'll take it into consideration ,and review it today, I appreciate your replies, good budget to build as well I see. That said a 20-25 ft is a great size and trailerable, although I can set a mooring at his place and not have to worry about the trailering so much.

Best, Stan I agree rosorinc that is a beautiful boat, and thanks for the post, I have a issues of the woodenboat magazine and they have a nice weekender in the latest issue. Location: New Brunswick, Canada I really appreciate the input from everyone, it is reassuring that a boat build is in my future and to have the many folks here to pick their brains.
I am relatively new to the entire nautical lifestyle, enjoyed a few boats in my youth, and enjoyed learning to sail and am so excited to get a build going! I hate to be the devil's advocate here, but building a boat is a big commitment in terms of time, money and effort. We have been sailing as the crew on the Allyance,(brother-in-law's) a 27ft Hunter, for a few summers now, and both my wife and I love it. I have the full support of my wife on the build (as long as the other regular house maintenace doesn't go slack LOL).
I really liked a lot of the reasons behind the CLC Pocketship as detailed in the Woodenboat article and on the CLC website. I am now on my THIRD build and i know it sounds absolutely CRAZY that i started another small build in the middle of my big build, but what i learned this time around will save me MANY hours of time further down the line. The learning curve is endless and i can now absolutely prove it - that by building a small dinghy first, you do save time and money. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.
Determining the air pressure to use will come from a combination of material strength and size of the chamber. Before I build mine I made a lot of research over the internet but I never saw the Soar Cat. Its beginning to look like a hardware store version of this may be more difficult than planned. A plywood floor of the size and design desired would form the platform and the floating bit would be comprised of canvas tubes (old blue jean legs) sewn together and filled with sprayed expanding foam insulation. Using the extra lid, measure and cut out a piece that is a little shorter than the distance between the bamboo skewers and a little smaller than the height of the container. We used colorful tape and permanent markers so each child could design their own special paddle boat. Even the lower cost (smaller) inflatables at WestMarine sell for over a thousand and go up. I used 18oz material, its good for lakes or big waters but if you want to go whitewater I recommend 35oz or 40 oz. I think the author of this article is looking for something a little more rigid, as would I. I wanted a craft that we could make inside but use in the pool, so we decided to make fun little boats.


You will also want to put tape on the outside of the container where the skewer goes to prevent water from getting in as much as possible.
Building a current design with a growing fleet might be a cheaper option as the resale value will be better. My basic plan is to use some heavy canvas, and impregnate it with something to make it air tight. While the tarp material resellers will tell you to use a heat gun, etc, you can make life easier using specific glues.
Conversely, the advantages over a pure inflatable are it's sleek shape, clean entry, and good performance. Andrews NB or Grand Manan, but for the most part as mentioned before mostly river sailing.
The canvas should add plenty of strength allowing it to hold a little bit of pressure and stay rigid.
Here are some links were you can buy the material: (This guys have good deal on material but the sell only black for 22oz and big roll 50 yards to 70 yards.
I am going back to fishing since retired and I want to get a little 10 ft jon boat, no bigger.I want to take my dog with me sometimes and plan on just getting away from shore in lakes and ponds. Everyone I've spoken to about this project has responded either that I'm crazy (possible), this is impossible (I'll never believe it), or both. Lets start with the base material. If material costs are kept low, the cost part may not be a big deal.A quick and dirty method of measuring the strength of the material is to cut a one inch wide strip to a length equal to the desired circumference, plus a little bit for hangers.
I find Microsoft paint is the easiest when it comes to taking screen snapshots for the above method and having to crop them. I am really thinking of using a heavy canvas, like the kind available at the hardware store as painter's drop cloth. Purchased like that, I can get large pieces of canvas that are very sturdy and inexpensive.
So, I think its a good starting point. Next up, a low cost way to make the canvas air tight and durable.
I have used a inflatable fishing chair off the coast of Saudi Arabia in the red sea (not again) and did grow up in the intercoastal waterway in Fla, but not that fond of swimming.Anyway sorry to run off at the mouth but wanted to say thanks for the read. I have experimented with "PlastiDip" stuff used to plastic coat tools, and "liquid electrical tape" but, these two substances are hard to the saturate fabric with.
Probably just as well, as these would be pretty expensive in the quantity required. I really think that a liquid vinyl or some kind of vulcanizing compound would be ideal.
