Simple Design for a Cardboard Boat
Georgia Pacific puts on a Cardboard Boat Race for the Toledo Boat
Show every year. In 2013, we came up with a pretty nifty design
that used almost all the cardboard and created a sturdy, functional
boat. This design in plywood - modified to fit the materials - is
called the Tik-Tak
Kayak, also developed here.
The transoms will touch when displacing 300lbs, but a more practical
limit will be keeping the gross weight under 250lbs, more than adeqwuate
for 2 (or more) kids, an adult and child, or a single adult.
This cardboard boat is intended for a single use on calm, protected
waters. The builder assumes all responsibility for the safety of
of a build
