I’ve been doing a little bit of work on my submarine (the progress of which you can see at DIYsubmarine.com) — my very small, simple sub, which is nothing compared to more impressive home jobs like Peter Madsen’s KRAKA — but am thinking that this weekend I will take a quick break and build a small boat. I’m thinking of whipping together a Mini Max (that link will give you plans that you can download — this one contains a video) or something similar. I really like the tiny little power boats that can built from plans with a couple sheets of plywood and a weekend’s worth of spare time. The video below is a Mini Most (the plans are on that same site I linked earlier — and here’s another site with free classic boat plans), which is also high on my to-build list, but I really think I’ll quickly knock out the Mini Max because it’s so quick-n-easy… it was advertised as having a build cost of $20 when it was first designed.

It’s really nice having this big space… Other than my back yard at my old house at Queen and Bathurst, I haven’t had a real workspace since I lived on my childhood farm.

    wow, you’re own mini sub! Sounds like something awesome to have, unless you have a phobia of FISH (like me!) hmm..I don’t know how that’d work for me. I’d probably collapse like I did at whole foods when I bumped into the fish display xP

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
