I had a 1912 wooden canoe that never sprung a leak. Of course, it was covered with canvas on the outside, but without canvas, it would've been covered with acrylic coating.

For me I am student .. well a poor student. But my turtles are getting bigger so I need to get them a new house. And I just hate those stock tanks I can't see anything in them.

I read an article on how to make these a while back (because I was interested) and you have to be really spot on with measurements and cuts so it doesn't leak.
