Confused in America

Because of current events in North America I have decided I would like to live on the water. I have 6 bucks in my pocket , a water proof phone and a real good life preserver. Is this plan feasible ?

"Neutrino built several rafts out of donated and recycled materials on which he lived and sailed. In 1997-98 Poppa Neutrino sailed one of his homemade junk rafts, Son of Town Hall, from North America to Europe, becoming the second person to sail a raft across the Atlantic and the first to do so on a raft made from trash.[7] Betsy Terrell, his wife, was the captain and navigator on the crossing."

Could probably make a raft out of all the masks and gloves tossed in the ground at any given Walmart parking lot
