One of my best friends from college is a fully-redneck dude who will use duct tape for anthing that leaks.
He also told me if you duct tape anything, it’s probably redneck.
Here’s a canoe made out of PVC pipe and duct tape that’d definitely qualify as redneck boat.
I wanted a boat that would allow me to cast into the shore instead of from the shore. Being a mechanical engineer, one thing led to another and as the years passed I decided I would build a skin-on-frame kayak. The final kayak would be wood framed and fabric skinned. I searched for additional ideas and eventually made a balsa and tissue paper model of an 18 footer. Not wanting to invest more money and time than necessary in a prototype, I began thinking of a simple and quick way to test a design.
Great innovation. Great photographs too.
hi, is this good for use in sea?
I am also studying to become a mechanical engineer and wanted to make a boat for the same reason. i made my models from balsa and cardboard. i just purchased pvc to make a full scale prototype boat (all of this was before i saw this site, amazing how similar our steps were) Anything else that would help would be appreciated. Thanks!
