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. The more I look at these the more I’m thinking that while the sets are pretty neat, the Kre-On mini figures are very cool.
Allow me to assuage: The already-released TF blind packs have printed numbers on the bags that correspond to the figure inside.

It even makes me wonder if they didn’t have this concept in the works when designing the Battleship sets. The TTBP is so obviously inspired by the vintage Joe toy; was there something like this in the Battleship movie?
