Cardboard Regatta Designs

Brian has entered us into a cardboard regatta on Friday. We will probably be the only sailors there, so we want to represent and WIN. I'm not sure what the prize is, but it is all about bragging rights. Our building materials are limited to cardboard and duct tape. Does anyone have any winning designs that you guys could share with us? Tips, ideas, advice are all gratefully accepted. We'll even put your name on our vessel to advertise your sponsorship!

Many thanks!

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I'll design a boat for you, give me the details. So I can draw it, OK?

Tell me where you will be sailing and how many people inside.

How long it has to float, and how will it move.

The more details the better.

Thanks! It actually will be a small boat to fit two people (not quite sure of the exact dimensions.) It will be made of soley cardboard and duct tape. They give us oars. The total distance is approximately 500 feet, and will be on salt water.

The races I've seen like this used paddles for propulsion.

Should this be moved to the design forum?

There are 10 kinds of people. Those who understand binary and those who don't.

I did this not to long ago.

Think simple! The elaborate designs fall apart very quickly.

Can you use that wax covered cardboard? That would be golden.
