Because inner tubes can puncture, areas full of snags can sink your raft. The construction project itself is relatively simple. In many cases, the trouble will be finding enough truck tire tubes to get started. Form a rectangle with both 96-inch beams and two 45-inch beams. Connect them at the corners, shorter beams on the inside, with two screws at each corner. Place the third 45-inch beam in the middle of the rectangle. Attach it just as you did the end pieces. Lay the plywood sheet across the top of the frame. Attach it with screws at each corner. Reinforce the long sides with four screws per side and the short sides with two screws per side. Space the reinforcing screws evenly along each side. Flip the platform over. Lay the eight remaining beams on the underside frame, perpendicular to the long beams of
