People generally go for 1) speed & floatability, or 2) looks. Rarely do the two meet. Both have great merit. Just have fun!
Cardboard, tape, glue, and paint is all that’s allowed for anything structural on the boat.
No Cheating! No false bottoms or hiding any building materials. No rigging the boat with anything that helps it float or aid in rowing. (You know what we mean- we don’t have to list the creative options that might help you cheat.)
We attempt to fairly pair you against a like team, i.e. children against children, showboat against showboat.
Everyone who loses is eligible to put their boat back in the water for a seriously entertaining Loser’s Round.
