Pallet Boats & Rafts

Ahoy! It's going to be a perfect weekend in Southwestern Michigan. Sunny, warm, a light breeze.
And if you are going to have a chance to swim, or fish, or just relax at one of our 5 Great Lakes or one of the 11,000 inland lakes in Michigan, how about a little round up of pallet boats & rafts and such?

Perfect for little ones to use their imagination.
