Well it’s been a week since the race, I can’t say that I’m entirely glad to be finished with another season of cardboard boat building. I can still remember the smell of contact cement and double ply. But that’s probably because we used 5 gallons of the stuff, we really need to be more economical next year!
I would definatley say that it was a success this year… again. Dad’s boat won for best design, he built a functional paddlewheeler! And Our pirate ship won for “Pride of the Show” Which is really what I was going for the whole time, it also raced pretty well despite being 15 feet long and weighing over 300lbs. Take that in your brain for a little bit…
WE MADE A 15 FOOT BOAT OUT OF CARDBOARD THAT WEIGHED 300LBS
oh yeah… it had 3 masts one of them was 13 feet tall and it carried 4 people avg weight 200lbs. Lets just say that it was a big mother.
Don’t worry it was only amazing
I need to take some time off, it’s time to work on other projects. But I’ll definatley be back next year, but I don’t know if we can top this! or if I even want to!
