A member said I should post this here. I have a kickboat Water Wagon style I built in the classified for sale if anyone wants to look. I’ve built at least a dozen and wife said no more unless I sell one. It’s a sickness.

I think you have perfected the building process. Great looking boat on a proven design.

Cool project. Have you or your buyers been successful in registering in Texas as a homemade boat so you can get TX numbers, title, registration, etc.?

I recently registered a boat and I also got the paperwork to register it as home made. You fill it out and get a appointment to be inspected at tpwd and pay the registration fees. (Easier than a non title boat for sure). Pretty straight forward it seems. I have the paperwork still. The other kick boats did not have a motor mount so registration was not required. You only have to register and title them if you use them on public waters with a electric or gas motor. I’m building another after I sell this one and yes I’ll title it as home made.

is it made from styrofoam? can it be coated with fiberglass resin? and what is the weight capacity? thanks


COMING SOON! .. THE STICKLE HOOK " the stay level sickle hook". sits level in the water with all knots.! Provides better hook sets and more natural jigging motion. No more adjusting the knot, gluing , or tying loop knots that cause the hook point to tangle in the loop, or worse knick the line.. The jighook that will make all others obsolete !

Styrofoam no. Started as 2”/4’/8’ foam insulation board. Fiberglass and resin? No. Poor mans fiberglass. Pretty durable. Weight capacity unknown. I’d guess 300 lbs. I’m 240 and no way I could sink it if I wanted too.
