My son Blake and I built this "tinker" boat using scrap wood along the shore at Liberty State Park in Jersey City, NJ. We learned a lot about nature, balance, recycling, and having fun outdoors in the green space.
After collecting a lot of the local driftwood – including the ones in water :) – we started designing our boat. It was all about experimenting and going with the flow.
We started with the ship more like a barge, then had fun experimenting with a v-hull that made our final design in the top photo.
