How to make floating pontoon using bamboo logs.

Floating pontoons can be very useful for cleaning sewage & other industrial effluents stored in tanks before safe disposal or further use. Pontoons can be made from therm-col sheets. But I want to get a very clear detailed design with proper instruction, so that it can be made using bamboo logs which are nature friendly.
Can anybody help?

Re: How to make floating pontoon using bamboo logs.

Noah Manarang had community training for pontoons in a photo essay on Facebook which detailed one particular design. I've just gone to check the link and they seem to be gone.

It was in this thread - http://vetiver.org/flux/viewtopic.php?pid=537#p537

Now, I would possibly check Noah Manarang's personal page or Vetiver Phillipines (from memory) to see if they still exist. Give me a few minutes and I will try for you.

I have not seen a single detailed design as everyone has different takes on styles, methods, materials and sizes. You raise a good point that perhaps there should be standardised designs.

Here you go - https://www.facebook.com/pg/VetiverFarm … 6827781502

There is a bamboo design there you can see from multiple angles.

Check the photos here as well - https://www.facebook.com/pg/VetiverFarm … e_internal - there are some shots of some military personnel floating a pontoon which is another one to check out.
