Cardboard Boat Regatta


  • Cardboard
  • 5 rolls of Duct Tape (Red, White, Black, SIlver)
  • 2 bottles of Elmer's glue
  • Clamps
  • Tape measure
  • Box cutter

Step 1: Gluing Process

The stone is on the cardboard because I used Elmer's glue to put two pieces of cardboard together strengthen it, and the stone pushes the cardboard pieces together.

Step 2: Taping the Frame

These images shows how I taped the walls of the boat, to keep the boat waterproof so it can float.

Step 3: Shaping the Boat

In these images I am shaping the boat with tape so it can stay afloat. I also added a hood to the boat for the theme of my boat.

Step 4: Taping Pt. 2

These images are showing the final layers of the taping process. I also added a windshield for my theme which is SpongeBob.

Step 5: Final Design

These images show what the boat will look like with all of it's designs and shapes. I can also fit perfectly fit inside of the boat.

Step 6: Materials Used

These are the materials used they were all full when we started building the boat. Now that I am finished most of the materials are close to gone.
