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.

Link to pdf plan of an 8 ft corrugated plastic kayak. This is likely a fun inexpensive afternoon project with the kids. Minimum instructions. I would use Gorilla Tape or the Scotch heavy duty tapes for this and make sure I have a pfd on. Make a model out of cardboard first.

Too short to be an adult's boat but will easily carry a smaller human.

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.

No Parts have designed a model of folding boat that is hugely simple to fold up and transport. I think they are designing it as an emergency/rescue boat. I don't think it is available commercially. They are using thicker coroplast. Looks like close to half inch, this makes the sheet much stiffer.


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 and the boat survives. Have a look.
