What do you guys think any suggestions as to design changes are welcome since this is the first rail I have ever built and ridden. I rode it sunday and had a pretty good time on it, it turned out to be alot more stable than I thought it was going to be.

Yeah I know its a little short now I forgot to mention this is just part one there will be another section that is attached to the one pictured. We had to make it in two parts so we could take it in and out of the lake (My aunt does not want a bunch of rails on her lake she thinks they are eyesores lol)

Chase what did you guys use to float yours. We dont have any more flat bottom boats laying around to build the next part on lol. Brent we did actually think about it lol she is throwing me a graduation party in may she said I could put as many as I wanted out there then so might try and leave them out there after that lol. I have a buddy who is a really good artist and we are going to let him do work on it when we get the other part built.

we used six round plastic drums and built the frame around them..when we got it to the water we had to let water in the drums to let it sink down to the right height. we left it in the water with a solar light right under the drop off..can barely see it in the pics..was fun to session till the wildlife agency put big staples in the up rail..just asking for someone to get hurt
