duct tape sailboat

okay we all know duct tape is the fix all. mythbusters just did a whole hour on duct tape. the funniest part is they built a duct tape sailing dinghy, and sailed it on the frisco bay. they used a steel frame with duct tape glue to glue as a skin. even the sail, rudder, and keel where all duct tape.

i am sure discovery online has the clips

It looked like they were moving at a good clip. I was amazed that it sailed as good as it did. Way to funny though.

I saw this last night. It was amazing how well it sailed, but I have to wonder if it had any chance at all of pointing.

MIKEMCKEE will become famous soon enough
Mythbusters had a real good show this week, they wanted to find out if a car got better gas mileage when it was clean or when dirty. The first part showed that the clean car did better, but they got to thinking, what if we put dimples on it like a golf ball. Well, you guessed it, the car with dimples got almost 4mpg better mileage than the car with just the clay (which was used to make the dimples). This show wight be on at another time, it's a good one.

I made a coracle out of sisal twine, 1/4" pvc tubing, and clear plastic. It floated for about ten minutes, down a river, until I got a leg cramp and popped my toenail through the plastic.
