Stability?  I have been up to the top of that mast several times, all 85 kg of me ( about 190 lbs) and she takes no notice of me, this remember is a 21 ft boat and I can tell you there are very few boats of this size that will tolerate that amount of weight that high up without falling over on their side. PS the rope hanging off the side like a snotty nose is the anchor set up on the pushpit for emergencies,  just in case. Since I’ve not used this, I’ll let you be the judge as to the usefulness to the group! This photo was taken by Richard Gross - it was a great day, thanks to you both for being with us. If anyone has a need for easy kayak transport to and from the water they can purchase a kayak cart. I know it probably sounds funny to be saying that about a PDRacer but you would not believe the cabin I have on this one. Imagine my surprise when I opened up your website and saw a photo of my boat (Nootka Sound) as the cover story. The attached photo shows a workshop stool I made out of a discarded office chair and a trashed bicycle. For those of us who don't have a garage or workshop to build our boats in, here is a possible answer. The line across the cockpit runs between two jam cleats on my system, then a loop is pulled through the deadeye on the tiller and the bungee hook is attached. Pandaw IV will reposition tomorrow from Prome to Henzada where we will meet the Merlin team.
The large dining room will convert to a clinic and the existing cabins used to accomodate the relief team. Pandaw II is currently in Mandalay undergoing engine repairs and as soon as we can move her she will relocate down to the Delta. The money will firstly be used for fuel for the ships and then to assist the operations of our charity partners like Merlin. Chuck: My son, Harlan, and I have been making some boat hardware from the bronze that we got from you.
View DetailsEnjoy a day out on the water while you relax on your boat in comfort with the Marine Raider Silver Series Boat Seat.
Inflatable boat seats make your boating more comfortable and can provide much needed storage too!In the case of collapsible inflatable boats the seat is usually a wooden seat or molded plastic bench that hangs from special patches fastened on the tubes.Here is my son when he was five in our Bombard Typhoon 420. Here is an interesting aftermarket boat seat - a roto-molded plastic storage seat made for inflatable boats. I am building a boat seat for my Grand Raid Mark II - a storage trunk seat to allow me to store all the boating essentials as well as attach accessories like downriggers, rod holders and pot pulling pulleys.
In large ribs of the extreme adventure variety, fancy shock absorbing seats allow the passengers to ride through the most extreme seas in more comfort.
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. Missed him as he was out on the water, but at least I saw Resolution under sail - albeit in very light airs. It goes together in minutes, and is adjustable, lightweight, mobile, rugged, and best of all, free. I know this sounds like a commercial, but there are few bargains in life and this is one of them. The outside is painted but there is some more sanding,priming,and topcoating to be done on the interior.
Now we can repay the Burm for all the warm hospitality and enriching experiences we have in the past enjoyed there.
I used contact cement to attach some sleeping pad type foam to the wooden seat so it was more comfortable and not so slippery. It is designed to rest on the tubes and hold a fuel tank inside.The boat owner felt it would be better supported on the floor, so he blocked it up with wood.
I would be scared to even ask the price!Ribs tend to have more elaborate seating systems.Bench seats with or without a steering column attached, or a saddle seat with a steering column like this Hurricane Police rib on the West Coast of Canada. 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. This is amazing and all our Pandaw team in Burma are totally moved by the outstanding generosity of Pandaw passengers. I have not found any source for this brand of seat, so most likely the company is not making them anymore.
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. They're left from the cat I was making when I saw Waterworld and went 'maximalist', eventually making the cat you saw at Lake Powell.
I had something similar in mind but would have had to tax my brain a lot more if I had to figure out everything David had already done. 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. Anyway, tell David I plan to spend more time drinking a homebrew and less time thinking - thanks to him!
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.
Nearly everything else that is not homemade will come from Duckworks ,including the sails, hardware and rigging.
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.
