Duckweed Boat Overhaul

April 21, 2013

Back home from my duckweed ponds with a grin and muddy shoes this beautiful afternoon. Duckweed is growing well and spreading in even clusters across my primary pond. I talked one of my teens into helping me pull my duckweed pontoon out of one pond, swap styro floats for four 55 gallon drums strapped tight and lower into the aforementioned pond. It’s riding much higher in the water now and isn’t so tippy.  It’s actually a bit too big for this current pond so  I”ll tweak it a bit more and then move it to its final larger pond home.  Will have to read up on how to build  a temporary pier as I’ll need several cheap ones that I can reuse on down the road.

The styro floats are going to come in handy for a second boat- lighter construction, no roof, sort of a bare bones duckweed harvester. Solar recharge will happen on-shore instead of on the boat.

Now to fix that darned gutter that is leaking…
