    I just started researching this and was surprrised by all the responses. Did anyone here make their own fishing boat? Just curious.

    What I am finding is plywood boats and pontoon boats made out of wood on top of plastic pontoons.

    You should make a duct tape boat.

    I was just reading a thread this morning on another forum (non-music related)... some guy was looking to build one out of a utility trailer and 4 empty 55 gallon drums.

    I helped a friend build a wood boat out of 1/4" ply. some 2x4s and other random scraps... not sure it was ever water proofed of had it's maiden voyage. It was the summer before high school; we ended up at 2 different schools and lost touch.

    The father of my 1st girlfriend (what a biatch!) built a boat, from plans he got from Popular Mechanics. He didn't do much about seating but it was a decent boat.
