After receiving three ducklings from a friend, I wanted to have a safe haven for nesting. As I finished the project, we determined we had three drakes-so no nesting. Still a nice accent to the fish pond. The idea was taken from a internet item and built with cypress board culls from the local building supply store. I used 2 layers of 1/2" blue board foam cut to fit under the base for flotation. It was a fun project working out the design for a floating hexagon.
