    How do you make a fruit boat for parties?

    I have seen watermelon halves used like a "boat" with other cut and balled fruit pieces inside, what are the best fruits to use?

    I've only made a fruit boat a few times for summer picnics. I found the best combination to be, obviously the watermelon balls (seeds removed), Honeydew balls, Cantaloupe Balls, Red & Green grapes, whole strawberries (with stems), Peeled & sliced Kiwi and I have even added slices of banana (not until right before serving though because they do get slick & brown fast if you add them too soon).  I have seen pineapple chunks as well but I prefer not to include them, even though I love pineapple. I don't think they incorporate into the other fruits as well.
