So how many rolls of tape did it take? Happy to see a picture of it with all of you in it actually on the water to show that it floated.Great job! More pics of the girls next time, please.

This would have been much more water resistant if you painted it.

Most rules of the races don't let you paint. Like ours today.. no paint, no pre-made paddles, etc. But, good idea!

That's a lot of duct tape. So how did it perform? Did you win? Did you have to swim back to shore?
