MacGyver Would Be Proud: DIY Canoe from PVC Pipe, Duct Tape and Plastic
What would MacGyver do if he was stranded on a trash dump in the middle of the ocean? If he had the right supplies, chances are he'd come up with something very similar to this PVC and duct tape boat. C'mon, we all know MacGyver always has duct tape on him!
A while back, Ben Glick and his son Daniel ventured into the land of MacGyverisms when building a prototype for their more expensive wood-framed and fabric-skinned kayak. The prototype canoe is made from PVC pipe, plastic sheeting, cord, and two empty one-gallon milk jugs with lids. And let's not forget MacGyver's favorite thing—duct tape.
If you've even got the slightest bit of aquaphobia in you, I wouldn't suggest trying this makeshift watercraft out. But if you're more than comfortable on the open water in a boat made of plastic, then continue on to the instructions on how to build your own at Duckworks.
This homemade canoe shouldn't set you back more than 30 bucks and 5 hours.
