Cheapskate design challenge!
I'm taking part in a "float" on the river Monday. Tidal waterway, pretty damn flat water, most participants just use inner tubes or such.
I've got it in my head to build something goofy for it, but don't want to spend money. I do have some supplies though.
I have a fair amount of epoxy, about a sheet and a half worth of plywood. A few yards of nylon, random other cloth. LIke upholstery type stuff.
The boat doesn't really need to last more than five hours on the water, but I don't want to waste materials on something that goes in the dumpster at the end either.
I have today and tomorrow off, I work weekends, so I have to be able it build it pretty much today and tomorrow. Maybe some early morning, late night finishing up over the weekend.
I have a back up plan, a big inflatable thing, so this isn't too critical. I had initially planned on using the Wa'apa for Monday but don't have an outrigger together. Looking over what I have available I can't conceive a decent outrigger I can throw together that quickly. I just woke up feeling super ADD with my mind running a thousand directions at once thinking of goofy ideas for this event.
Any fun suggestions?
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.
