So I’ve given it more thought and decided that I want to build that really badly built cardboard boat and paper mache boatish thingy. I say boatish thingy because really, it will be extremely simple in design (basically a box or something resembling the shape of a Higgins Boat.

The goals of the project:

1. To gain experience building with cardboard and paper mache.

2. To test the viability of a boat built of said materials and waterproofing.

3. To pass some time and to complete the project with a minimum of cost.

4. To enjoy the time spent doing so.

 

There you have it. Now I must get to work getting some material and understanding come physics concepts, namely:

1. The strength of various types of cardboard

2. Best method of waterproofing

3. How to paper mache

4. The laws of displacement, pressure, and other forces that will affect said boat.
