My son’s 5th Birthday party was pirate themed, but no pirate party is complete without a pirate ship with a plank to walk!
The sail is PVC pipe and some cheap red fabric. The bottom of the boat is a couple of pieces of scrap 3/4″ plywood I had left over from building some garage shelves. The sides are some really cheap paneling I got from home depot along with the 1″ strips I used for ribbing. The bench and plank were cut from the same piece of 2″x10″. Then I used some left-over stain and house paint I had in the garage. Total build time was around 16-18hrs, total cost not counting scrap materials was about $50.
