There are a few PVC canoe designs online. Clearly, they are better constructed the the ones shown in the article. However, as one builder pointed out they first tried theirs in a pond and in shallow water.
It’s understandable that someone could find a design and try a build. The idiocy is thinking that the first trip would be with a group of Boy Scouts who would load up and start down the river.

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
― Samuel Adams
