I love that the boat will not weigh a ton, and that the author claims fifteen year olds have made them with little guidance from adults (my kind of project!).
The information in the book is written very clearly and there are wonderful illustrations showing exactly where to fold, cut, etc. Additionally there are pictures of completed boats, some of which the author claims have been around for several seasons, so this is not a 'throw away project.' The author is very thorough in sharing his knowledge from what type of sealer to use (which is environmentally friendly like the rest of the project), to how to get into your boat without capsizing it.
I searched on the internet for boat ideas which would be inexpensive and found a YouTube video at the website here: [...] I was very excited to see these boats skimming nicely along the water, one even had an electric motor.
Great purchase, cannot wait for the weather to break so I can start building!
No negatives. No constuctive criticism. Written for an engineering class by the professor. Good job for scope and purpose of the Course/book. Direct, simple, correct,interesting and practical.
For boating enthuiasts it is effective for principles of physics., but could be expanded to include hull design. However, for that existing population it's more FUN to be creative and sail or sink. Visit "cardboard boat races" web sites for loads of info on cardboad boats. That,s where I got my reference to the book I bought from you. Make sense?
The only critic:
Why do most of the men shown on photos in the book NOT wear a Personal Floating Device (Life-West)? Are they really better swimmers than women? I wonder ...
