    if you study the last photo carefully you can see the little boy is actually holding the "dry glass" boat up therefore it cant even float!

    This is a bit of a "late hit", but I've seen "dry glass" in large yacht construction when using the infusion process. As the vacuum pulls the resin through the reinforcements, is a spot is missed you have "dry glass" and have to go back and do some very futsy repair work. Frankly, I'd rather build a boat from "dry grass".

     I thought the kid in the picture had his hand on the invisible "dry glass" boat which would be really cool in a pond or lake as it would look like you could sit on water.

     This might be a very brilliant idea at intentional mis-spelling.  I wonder if someone works in advertising ... :P

    I too had to know what dry glass was...

    Glass = very bad bathtub toy.  The boat looks like it might be fun to sail on a pond, though.

    When I was a kid, together with friends we went up the river as far as we got tired, then made a raft from reed, some 3x3 to 5x5 meters wide and went down the river back home. Often we took our bicycles with us and made a fireplace on the raft. Took all day. We didnt use anything else, just the reed itself.
