This doesn't sound good at all...!
It is bound to flex especially on the "8 ft" sides...and make troubles.
The two-bye material does not sound good for this situation.
'Perssure' treated or no...edgewise or no...
Otherwise, if a 'pallet-jack' IS going to be available for moveing the
thing...why not just make it out of 'ferro-cement' or the like, as the =
'Kaiser' Landing Craft or other 'Boats' were or are yet?
Or like a big 'laundry' sink...?
Be a lot easier...'tile' that with ease and confidence...the 'weather'
wouldn't hurt it either, if it is to be outside...
