My mission is to get a billion butts in boats. The problem with just about any one piece boat is that it is too big and heavy thus impractical. Even a small boat has to have about twice the volume of a person which is about 180 pounds or 360 pounds or about 6 cubic feet. When we make that a shape that goes through the water it is quit long. By making a boat in pieces and having it unfold makes it very quick to set up and still put inside the car instead of on top of it. The other way of having a boat go into a small package is to inflate it but this takes a while to inflate and deflate, can deflate with a leak, and is an environmental disaster for where it is built. We may enjoy nature with an inflatable but destroy it somewhere else. Making a boat in pieces from polyethylene could be easily be shipped back to the factory and become recycled. It may even be possible to use recycled beach plastic.
