I have an old fiberglass boat I want to use as an above ground planter. My biggest concern is how to keep it upright with all the soil and whatever I plant. Any suggestions? As simple as possible.

Could you run a stake front and back?

I once had a fiberglass (about two ft. long) red boat and it had on each end of the boat loops so it could hang up. Worked very well. Is there a way you can put loops or even let it sit in a net of some type.
I have been looking for this boat planter forever and unable to find it. If you ever see it, kindly get back to me. Thank you.
