    My little floating box cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $140. But about $30.00 of that was guerrilla glue. I used a lot of it in places that I thought it might need to expand into. If I was doing it again I would just be little more careful with measurements and things and stick with that PL premium. Could have saved 20 or $30.00.

    Tha'ts a fairly small investment for a nice summer hangout or stable fishing platform..so it could have been done for 100 bucks say...that's pretty good return on investment these days...should be pretty water-tight for sure too as wood glue is tough water-proofing stuff IMHO...
