Instructables user Weissensteinburg made this raft by collecting plastic bottles for pontoons, and shows you how to make your own, too.

    Add a few more thousand and you could make your own island like that orther fellow can’t remember his name offhand. Unluckly his island got destroyed in a hurricane but he is rebuilding.

    That raft is great.

    I will be sure to add that idea to my survival skills notebook. It should come in real handy if I get shipwrecked on an island where a bottled water truck has broken down!

    Seriously though – a very neat idea. Good Job!!

    AND THAT YOUNG MAN IS DROP DEAD GORGEOUS. NOT AS GOOD LOOKING AS THE FELLOW IN YELLOW FROM THE OTHER PICTURES ON THE INSTRUCTABLES PAGE, BUT STILL A LOOKER NONTHELESS.
