Plastic Sheeting
« on: March 02, 2017, 08:27:09 pm »

Does anyone know of a company that supplies wide heavy duty plastic sheeting for a boating pool liner. Another question, what size would be a reasonable size of a model boating pool using straw bales.  Would a pool 10 x 20 metres seem reasonable and how long are straw bales?
Just watched a video on U-tube called destroyers, frigates and submarines in which there was a good sized pool but I could not guess the size, anyone know what size that one was?
