When you don’t want to spend thousands of dollars on a boat, but you still want to go on the lake or river to fish or just to relax and have fun, you can be creative and make your own boat.
You can find often free, used 55 gallon drums in your local classifieds. They may need cleaning, but all you need to do is have a truck to pick them up.
You also need 2X4 or 2X6 lumber and some ties, screws … the motor is optional, although needed for best results 🙂
You can also use free pallets to save more money, like in this boat raft example:
