Cardboard Boat Race Details

Build your own boat with your friends, team, floor, major, etc. Boats may be any shape and size. Decoration is the key to creating a memorable boat. Boats will be raced across the pond.

Rules:

  • Boats must be able to hold at least 2 people. 
  • The boat must be built only out of corrugated cardboard and duct tape. Cardboard may be as thick as you want; pre-treated or wax coated cardboard may not be used.
  • Boats may be decorated with anything, but decorations can not be a structural part of your boat.
  • Any form of paddles is permitted (one paddle per person in the boat).
  • No metal oarlocks and no motors may be used.

Judging:

$75 floor funds will be awarded in each of the following categories:

  • Quickest boat across the pond
  • Best design
