Step 1: Instructions

3.Fold one bottom ‘lip’ upwards then flip it over and fold the other bottom lip upwards

4.Open the shape up into a ‘hat’ and fold it down in the other direction so that the corners which were at each end are now together.

5.Fold the corner at the bottom of the new diamond up to lie flat then flip it over and do the same thing.

    I can't download the video where I am right now, due to data restrictions.

    It would be cool if you could upload the video to YouTube, then embed it here, since that would make it easier for everybody to see.

    (And it would also be cool if you replaced the googled thumbnail image with a photo you took of your own boat.)

    This is the kind of boat I made when I was a kid! Haven't thought about it in years and years!
