Thank you sir, I impressed that you are still actively enjoying life. I am very observant of the conditions and only go out in good weather. It can change very quickly and I have drifted out much further than I would have liked a couple of times. If you do a Google search you can do d plans for larger boats rather than adapting the plans.
Hi Gavin, many thanks for your design/free plans and your comments. This has been a very worthwhile project and has created a lot if interest. I tested the foam before I used it. It doesn't absorb water in fact.
I did have a cut-down juice bottle to bale out. I found that water came down the paddle with every stroke. Also, I have some skate wheels to include on my next (fibreglass) instructable.
I called the boat 'Attica' because I built it in my attic! It is registered as one of Gavin's designs no. M254.
You need to download a free program like 'Winzip' for a Windows PC. There are others for MAC etc
This technique can be used to make much bigger vessels.
Thank you kindly, sir. (but don't look too close). I urge anyone Interested to have a go, it doesn't need to be perfect, as long as it floats and doesn't leak!
I did consider one of those. It would be a lot messier and noisier though.
of course, those are real photos!
