Wouldn't it be nice to build pontoon boat?

But pontoons can be hard to find or expensive. The alternative is welding your own which is an entirely different set of challenges. So why not make your own pontoons out of simple stitch and glue techniques?

Known for their great stability, pontoons boats are perfect for cruising calm waters, casual recreation, as a swim platform, as a fishing platform, and more.

We like to keep things simple, so our pontoons are only 12' (3.7 m) long and each have a max beam of 24" (.6 m). But don't be fooled by their small size. Joined together, you'll be able to hold up to 1000 lbs (454 k)! This small size is perfect for easy transportation to and from the water and can hold 3 adults comfortably with minimum seating installed. This is a flat water boat and not recommended for any sort of constant waves above 6" inches.

Install some oars locks and a bench and you have a great rowing platform. Add a small 1/2" (1.3 cm) thick transom to the back, and you could install an electric trolling motor for hours of effortless cruising. Install a simple canvas canopy for a duck blind, umbrella for protection from the sun, install a swim platform/ladder for easy re-boarding while on the water, some benches for comfortable sitting or just use lawn chairs, d-rings to lash a cooler to the deck, the options are only limited to your imagination.
