I've posted a few low hanging fruit ideas. So far nobody has bitten. One such idea is a wider SUP board. Carve it out of styrofoam. Shape it with a Sureform file. Glass it up. Wider is better. Riders fall of SUP boards constantly. Make it twice as wide and you'd never fall off. It would still paddle just fine. You could make one for a hundred bucks.

Another is a dory made with foundation foam, one layer of glass and then sprayed with hot truck bed liner. LineX for instance.

Foundation foam is cheap and fast. You do have to lightly gently rough it up with 220 sand paper to get epoxy to adhere No big deal. You can glue it together at the edges with "foam adhesive" dispensed with a caulking gun.

Or use Plascore instead of foundation foam.

I used to get good ideas and think "I'll do that eventually."

But I'm 72 now almost 73. I haven't got time to do it all. I want one of those SUP boards. You could make a two person low sided decked Buffalo Boat with foam boarding (or Plascore) glass and truckbed liner for 500 bucks. It would extra light. Durable. Fast. And unique. Ain't nobody done it yet.
