home is where the heart is :) (I obviously am not from Louisiana.Although I want to visit real bad!) this is such a CUTE idea! (You can make it in any shape:) thinking about doing it :) Louisiana sucks so I hope that works out well for you.
This would be a good DIY! Get plywood cut to order from your local hardware store. Mark the positions of the nails with something removable, like soap, fabric chalk or pencil. Then use the string of your choice to make a gorgeous sailboat.
