Being the simple water vessel that it is, building a raft out of equally simple materials is no complicated tasks given that one knows the precise steps of constructing one. The raft has always been one of man's trustiest vessels in carrying him across bodies of water. Distinguished by its lack of a hull, which is something that most of other boats have, it is perhaps the most basic among all of the water vessels that man has ever made. Even though, the raft has always been one of the most used boat-type for travel over water as its simplicity makes it one of the easiest floating structure to craft since one only needs everyday materials and the essential know-how to construct the raft. To build one's own DIY raft, one needs the following materials: a decking, some screws and bolts, a ratchet, some marine foam, some pressure treated lumber with some sawed into sizes of 2 x 10", and some paper and pencil. For the tools, one needs a circular saw (though table saw will suffice), a drill with a full bit set, a hammer, and a knife. To start building the raft, one first needs to determine what size and weight one's raft will be. Building a heavy and large raft will be obviously more durable as far as traversing the waters is concerned but constructing a lightweight and small one will enable one to easily transport the raft from one body of water to another. It is entirely up to one's preferences as the building procedure will be the same no matter what one opts to construct. Start the actual construction by cutting some of the 2 x 10" boards into half and then attaching them to full-length 2 x 10" boards with a blocking of 2 x 4". Screw the pieces together with marine or galvanized iron screws coupled with the use of countersinks. After this, attach the side boards to the 2 x 4" blocking at the raft's middle and the third positions. With some screws and blocking, fasten four side walls together. Locate the floor joists in the raft and cut them to 7' in length. 2 x 10" board sections are then attached from center point to center point all across the box. One can now fasten the floor joists as needed. The marine foam now can be cut and attached to the spaces present between the joists. Apart from filling in the spaces, foams also add to the buoyancy of the raft, an aspect that is crucial in all floating devices. As with all foaming materials, a hotwire or a knife is the perfect cutting tool. After the essential parts of the raft have been built, one can now turn to the decking. Like the weight and height of the raft, constructing the decking rests mainly upon one's preferences in the weight, durability, and practicability aspects of one's raft. Building one's own raft is an easy project to accomplish as long as one has sufficient supply of the necessary materials and the requisite expertise for building simple structures such as the raft.

I have 2 punctures in my raft. Can I use a regular rubber repair kit?


Coghlan's Plastic or Rubber Repair Kit works on air mattresses and raincoats so it could work on your raft. It is available at Canadian tire for about $4. In a pinch you could also use duct tape. It provides a temporary, but waterproof seal.

How do I sail to the second island?


What I usually do is to go around the entire island gathering supplies first.
Then I return to First Beach and build/craft the 1X3 Roof (this unlocks new
shelter plans, bed plans, and the Comfort Motive). I then build an open
shack,
Improvised Cot, and Bamboo Spear. Between all of that and the Emergency Fire
Pit, Stone Axe, and Original Crafting Bench built earlier, this is usually
enough to get my Mechanical Level beyond 2.

Once that is done, gather all you can from Pier Beach. Then rest up, build
your
Raft, and select "Explore."

** The first time you sleep in a bed your Fun Motive will unlock, as will
plans for Music Shaker and Sand Buddy. **

You will notice a few goals you were not able to complete on this island. Not
to worry as some of them will have to wait for the 2nd and 3rd islands!

Save your life?


Absolutely. All sailing and sea-going craft should carry rafts - inflatable vessels which can maintain the lives of stricken mariners until rescue is available.
