25 Homemade Boats You Can Make Yourself
So you have an old Datsun laying around that’s wasting away in your front yard. That means you are nothing more than a full-blooded American. What to do with it though? Well, why not turn it into a homemade boat? It looks pretty easy from what we see here. Simply find some old steel drums to use as pontoons, and mount the car, sans tires, to a boat frame. Presto, instant homemade boat. It looks like they may have tied the tires to the boat frame to help with buoyancy. We’re not really sure what the corrugated tin pieces upfront are about, other than helping out with splash as this homemade creation flies through the water. The best part? Well, check out the background. Those other real boats probably cost a pretty penny. However, they are pale in comparison to our hatchback wonder here. We’re not even sure if this thing is legal, but it looks like he has made it to some destination irregardless. The only question we have is where would you put a fishing seat? It would be awfully hard to swing a rod and reel from the window, and I doubt you would want to balance on the pontoons while trying to snag something from the deep. But, imagine all the money you will save by filling this thing up with regular gas versus taking up at the local marina. That alone is worth giving it a try for sure.
