To The Other Side

Published by at 4:03 pm under Expeditions and Experiences

I need to cross the lake to get some stuff I have stored there. Since our boat is in another lake at the moment and I need it for fishing anyway I decided to build a raft. The timber was cut last year in the forest garden and is thoroughly dry now. Most of the trees are birch though, which is not optimal, spruce has much better bouyancy.

The raft is made with three layers, the main floats in the bottom, three connecting poles in the middle and a semi dry floor on top. Everything was bound together with split spruce roots.
