Building a boat? recycled materials? any ideas Answered

I am mad about boating but have little to no funds and live in a 1 bedroom apartment. Have struck on the idea of building one...it would have to be small and lightweight canoe/kayak do you think it might be possible to make one out of recycled plastic? for instance a few round bins? I have read the stitch and glue methods and wonder if it must be limited to wood...any ideas? it a tough one i know but it dosage have to be a thing of beauty just enough for fun down river.

You're limited only by your imagination.  At www.yostwerks.com, methods are shown for wood, plastic, and aluminum frame building.  Good Luck!
