KIDS BOAT, Looking for Ideas, Please Help!!!! Answered
Ok, So I am a tinkerer
Last month we we're at the Lake and my 5 YearOld and my 4 YearOld decided that they want a BOAT.. So being the Father that I am, Became flooded with giving MY kids a boat unlike anyone's.
SO Began the Brain Storm.
Picked up a Cheap "BROKEN" Trolling motor, and a Toy Sandpit from a friend..
SANDPIT holds water, Must hold OUT water as well...
Want to build small "Transom" out of PVC fittings that will fit snugly in Aft.
Also would like to fashion a way to use the Steering wheel, that I don't have yet...
to Either turn the Motor or Manipulate a Rudder of some Sort..
Also a Throttle set up unfortionitely to turn the throttle into the forward position it turns Clockwise.. not counter clockwise, which would allow me to mount it somehow on the right side, Like a Real boats Throttle control..
have some Thick HDPE Sheeting, that molds fairly well when heated.. and Also the Trolling motor... Pictures Included..
Please ANY Ideas would be Greatly Appreciated..
My Son and Daughter want a TUGBOAT, which thankfully this lends itself to PERFECTLY!!!!
