How Long Does it Take to Make a DIY Packraft?

This is probably the question I get asked most often, and the answer really depends on you. It should take around 15 to 20 hours to complete a basic DIY Packraft Kit – that’s an hour or two per evening for 2-3 weeks.

If you choose to make your DIY Packraft from plans and uncut fabric instead of a pre-cut kit, that will add more time, and if you add things like an airtight zipper, inflatable floor, spray deck, thigh straps, etc., then each accessory will also add time to the build.

Fixing mistakes will add significantly to the build time, so the most efficient approach is to make sure you fully understand the instructions before proceeding!
