Could you build a boat in 4 hours?

Our build-a-boat challenge is a great event, whether its a family, a group of friends or colleagues that get together you can rest assured that you'll have a great day and raise some money for the RNLI too.
The idea is that you start at 12:00 with the following:

  1. 1 x sheet of 6mm x 1200mm x 2400 plywood
  2. 2 x 25mm x 50mm x 2400mm prepared timber
  3. 1 x broom handle (to be used for paddle)
  4. 1 x tube of quick drying polyurethane glue (requires skeleton gun)
  5. 30 x 25mm nails
  6. 30 x 20mm screws
  7. 1 x roll of grey cloth tape
These are the ONLY materials you can use and our judges will be very strict on this. You then have 4 hours to build yourself a boat that you can race from the Stone Quay to the Main Beach. The first boat home wins the £50 cash first prize.
An entry form can be downloaded from [ HERE ]. We're very grateful to Jewson who supply all the materials and sponsor this event.
