I made a raft (8' * 8') using 6 30 gal drums. It was like sitting on a fishing bobber. Way to much flotation!!
I thought about using the 30 gal drums and making a "pointy" end and tail. After great thought though, I found there are old pontoon boats out there very cheap, and they are shaped better. Thanks for your thoughts.
I am certain it will sail well on a beam reach to a run, just not certain of running up the wind. We will start out without the jib and reef the main to play around with. I will use my C&C for a chase boat, but I am not certain it will be able to catch the new boat!!
