Troy’s Project: The Tropicana Boat Week 1

by Troy Ruprecht

I’m collecting gallon sized Tropicana orange joice containers in an effort to construct a boat or a raft of some sort. I will be putting it together using a combination of duct tape and rope, and may or may not be transportable depending upon how large it becomes. Here is an example of someone using milk jugs as a boat, although I will be constructing something larger. Follow this link.

If you’d like to help me out in this project, I’ll be accepting Tropicana gallon sized containers as shown here.

When I have enough containers to build the boat/raft/floating dock, I will post pictures and give an update on how it all came together. Hopefully by summer I will have enough to construct the vessel. Stay tuned.
