This instructable is a humorous take on my attempt at building a boat. You can't actually build a boat from these instructions, but it gives you a basic idea mixed in with a little humor. Be prepared for a lot of time and the need for a lot of warm weather before attempting. This is also my second attempt at a boat so you might want to practice with some cheaper materials. Good Luck!

Step 1: Pick A Design

After sorting through all the designs on the Internet, pick one that is simple and suits your tastes.
I'm not a reapist. Just saying this for clarification, because I have a question. What town is that Home Depot in? The reason I ask is because it looks like the in close to me. Please comment what town that it is in and what state on my homemade stand project. Thanks, <br/>Not a reapist<br/>No seriously I'm not a reapist
I purchased a handbag from brandbagshop.net. It only takes 3days to get it. So quickly.
lol pretty funny.
Mask???&nbsp; Gloves???&nbsp; OxiClean???&nbsp; I'm lost!!!<br />
wow this is pretty cool. i want to make a boat! but...this instructable is a bit...empty. i feel like it's missing A Lot! like specifics: tools (which ones), materials (what size wood etc.), boat dimensions, how and where to put it together, etc. and i want to know what it looks like when it's finished and painted! anyway, looks like it must've came out well! great job! :-)
Ditto. Looks like it could have been a cool boat, but I have no idea how you actually MAKE it. This is supposed to "instruct", but there's not enough instruction going on in this instructable.
'Tis humor this. Thou hast none, Sir.
If you want some information on easy boats to build google "one sheet boats". These are probably going to be a lot easier to start with.
I think the most important part is step 8, throwing away the plans. Mine matched the drawings perfectly so I skipped step 8, and the feckin' thing sunk! :P

As the disclaimer says, "You can't actually build a boat from these instructions, but it gives you a basic idea" I am building a Weekender II by Stevenson Projects. My spring/summer project is now headed into the fall, and yes, the 'glassing of the boat was the hardest part so far. Good luck on yours, I will be sailing next spring in mine.
Heheheh, cool!
Some left out ? Nice idea to build a boat but add some more ...I would like to see the finished boat ...Is it a small sail boat ? a dingy? a English punt?
