We did Float Your Boat again this spring, our area food bank's annual cardboard boat fundraiser. We learned a lot from last year and this time took home second place in the race. We were also the fastest four-person boat.
This year we decided to keep things simple and made a jon boat, which is what a lot of the kid teams do.
Thanks again to Walt's Bike Shop for the boxes.
We named her Kon-Liki and went with a Viking-inspired paint job.
Two "no glue, no paint" boats. This one taco'd immediately.
That's a big boat!
Long and narrow.
A fellow jon boat. It's always great how many kids'll fit into these.
Long and narrow makes for some close calls.
Got a roll over!
I believe this is the third year for this same boat. Just let it dry out and add more paint.
The fastest boat.
Here comes Kon-Liki! No leaks, just pure power. :)
In the drink! I believe Keep Calm righted and won their heat.
Got a submarine!
Pro tip: sails look cool but if there's a headwind, watch out!
