self propelled motor powered boat single person lay on thingy pontoon.
I know that sounds weird, but I don't really know what to call it. I found piece of Styrofoam that looks like it was from an old buoy. I cut it in half, made it into a toy boat, then realized the it could hold a person laying down on it. it is about 3 to 4 feet long and 20 inches wide in the pontoon shape. Now my questions are, first, how to I keep the Styrofoam from shaving off? Its the compact type, so the outside is fine, but where I cut it in half it is rubbing off. Second, should I make it a hand crank, or should I try to get a prop and chainsaw motor on it, or find a trolling motor? We live within five minutes walking distance from lake Michigan, so I could probably use it a lot (if it worked). Thanks!!!
