How to Build a Raft

Over the years I have designed and built a number of rafts...

barrel raft

Barrel Raft Plans Mk I

Perhaps the most stable and durable of the designs, but definitely the slowest.

PVC Pipe Raft Plans MkII

Faster and more streamlined than the barrel raft, but holds less weight.

Homemade Raft

Raft Plans Mk III

Pontoons are made of marine foam for the optimal balance of speed, capacity and portablility.
