Default A boat. Made of Cardboard.

It's legit. Think it will float? We are gonna paint it still I think. Maybe more duct tape.

You have far too much time on your hands! Haha.

Curious to see how you guys fare out in the Water! I personally don't think it will float.....Atleast not for long.

The torsional stability about the longitudinal axis seems to be lacking, other than that I'd say its sea worthy.

It's some thick cardboard. Oh, the bottom is fully coated in ductape too. And we are not going in with the chairs, lmfao. I'll let you guys know how far it makes it on friday...

Hahahaha i think it'll actually float because the bottom is covered in ductape, assuming the strips overlap slightly

I suppose if you were to do some more solid construction like bolting the cardboard together, sealing the edges (inside and out) with tar, and then reductaping the thing together again, I think it should float fine. You should try a trip down the Colorado River with a buddy or two. LMAO. Just be prepared to "jump ship" should you need to. JK, but seriously, you see what she can handle with some cheap upgrades.

Take some carpenters working plastic stuff (dunno what to call it but my dad uses it) and but it inside that and duct tape it to the bottom. if that makes sense, it does in my mind haha

He already posted pics. Is that not enough? LOL. You're right. Take a film of the "boat" going down the Colorado River. It doesn't matter if it flips, as long as it stays in the water for a good while. You should take it rafting while your at it.

I think by itself it will float. I just don't know how much weight it will hold. Good luck!

Our plan is to come in last. Kick down the front like some army boat landing on the shores of some beach. When we land it, we will just be chanting, "Normandy!" Then we will storm the beach and steal the 1st place prize.

And I will record it to be put on youtube. Unless I am one of the guys supposed to go in the boat, then I will have someone else record it, lol. Sucky part is, it's Lake Superior water, it's supposed to snow some this weekend, and we are going out Friday night...
