A simple raft---a mental exercise

The last few years have seen bad flooding with people often stranded. Some keep boats (I have a canoe) for sport, and these, like camping gear, can certainly be used when needed in an emergency, but many simply don't own or can afford to keep a bass or ski boat (or canoe) and some communities might even prohibit storing a boat at home
I was thinking a simple home made raft could be a useful item. In good weather, it could double as a small deck in the yard---add a weather proof storage chest for supplies and maybe a tarp to rig a tent to keep out rain when deployed. Buoyancy could be anything---plastic drums say, fastened underneath and out of sight.

Any thoughts or considerations?
