Hi there! I like your catamaran design just one comment I would replace the caps of the bottles so that is more difficult to sink it.The best real fun is not to buy as little as you can.

Спасибо, что поделились. Это действительно приятно!

Just a suggestion : compress air in the bottle and let the air get out under water slowly (iwth a tiny orrifice or any other mechanism) to make it move. Plastic bottles can sustain a great deal of pressure, meaning it may go on for quite a time.

My Project with RC.

It's fun to build toys with trash

Really nice, I'm the participant of the Banjarapalya Makerspace near Kanakapura road Bangalore. At the makerspace we use Internet and Science to build creative things, and then document them online (open-sourced), so that others can benefit from our projects. Here's the video we have prepared for crowdfunding our makerspace finances. Some of our students are trying to build a boat using Tin cans.

Thank you for sharing the link.
