This information is for general knowledge. Using non tested materials can be dangerous. If you build a coroplast boat be careful and make sure you test and use your boat in safe waters with appropriate personal flotation devices and backup help.
Coroplast is a trade name for Corrugated plastic sheet made in many colours and thicknesses. Coroplast is a US company. In other parts of the world other trade names might be better known.

I have not personally tested these boats. I can't say if they are safe. These are experiments by people who like to play and design things. Be careful already!
