Some Experimental Boats made from Coroplast and other Corrugated Plastic sheets.

Because Coroplast is quite an inexpensive material, it's easy to experiment with it. Give it a try, start with cardboard models and go on to a 4x8 sheet.

The Oru Kayak is an elegant 12 foot Kayak which folds into a package small enough to bring on a plane. This is a portable boat light enough to be practical. Can be unfolded thousands of times.

I'm cheating a bit because this is not corplast at all but it is rather a good folding boat. It has the advantage of being stiffer. It looks a bit like polycarbonate but stronger. At one point he hammers it aand the boat survives. Have a look.
