You don't say where Troop 65 is located, but if you are in a fairly cold
climate (and you must be if you want to build a klondike sled), my
advise is to forget PVC.
My troop followed plans for PVC snowshoes a few years ago, and in cold
the PVC turned brittle and shattered easily. If my memory serves me
correctly the temperature was around 10-20 F. when this happened.
