Here’s the Concept

Teams of two, boat plans, four hours, just enough wood to build a 12’ Carolina Bateau. Teams are judged on Speed, Quality, and a Rowing Race.

The Results

Some boats get finished, some do not. Some boats look like a boat, others have 2 left sides. Some are pretty, some are…..loved? Some actually float, sometimes not long enough! Oars might break, boats might sink, builders might swim, but someone always wins!
