Anyone ever think of making a canoe out of plastic barrels? I was going through my old projects and found that the wooden ribs on my plastic canoe were rotting. I made it 11 or 12 years ago and it actually looks like a canoe and not barrels cobbled together like most I find on the net. It is tougher than a 2 dollar steak, dragging over rocks and banging it around a lot. I'm thinking of replacing the ribs with PVC, which will make it even tougher. I will flatten the PVC and form it into the ribs. Any Ideas? Here is a link to my youtube video on some of my old projects, My canoe is one of them, I'll make a better video on it when I redo it.
Please check out this video https://youtu.be/mqHB6-1SwP4 and my youtube channel Little beaver Creek Homestead https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBFf3JDLs8xkWxF0bZGRKzA.
Just getting started with my channel but I plan to build a homestead with natural building materials. Cob and pallet cabin and a log cabin both with earth roofs. I plan to build a natural swimming pond check out my video on that. https://youtu.be/9JR-PLUxTME Spring development, composting toilet, a shower from two IBC 250 gal totes, modifying a harbor freight sawmill to cut a 20 ft. log, exploring my cave, survival skills and many other exciting videos to come so you might want to subscribe and fallow me on this journey.
Just waiting on warmer dryer weather so I can really get busy and not have to wade in the muck-en mud.
