Wow Your Friends With A DIY PVC Kayak For A Handfull Of Plumbing Supplies

Categories: DIY

Here's one man showing off his creativity with plumbing supplies. If you've ever gone into a kayak store and seen how little $1500 will buy you, you might just find yourself motivated to make one of these!  It looks easy enough, and you've gotta figure that if PVC cement can keep water in the pipes, it can certainly keep water out too!  

The connection in the rear keeps the pipes at an adequate distance apart.  The cross member forward of the midsection is a foot rest, and notice the 45 degree angle at the front to help it cut through the water better.  This is one design that anyone can make.  It looks to be made from 6" or 8" pvc pipe.  

You could cut costs on the design by building it with 3in or 4in pvc pipe, and using a little more of it.  What kind of creative can you come up with?  Send us your photos and / or videos when you get it on the water!  :)

Note to user... feet in water is not a good technique in alligator infested Florida waters  ;)

Now let's watch it in action:
