Rethinking the Design

After seeing how much space 500 bottles takes up, just half of what I need, I've started thinking that two pontoons would be just too long. I'll most likely redesign the raft to have a base made completely of bottles. One plus of this would be less need for a 2x4 frame under the plywood deck; instead, the deck could be lain directly on top of the bottles.
