Captain’s paper ship

      Hello soldiers!

      I’ve recently had a crazy idea, and I need your help to achieve it! I want to travel around my town (Strasbourg, France) using only a paper boat :)

      The aim would be to do something fun, something memorable, to use my imagination by creating something quite unexpected and funny :)

      I need your idea for the ship design and my costume, but also to realize this project as it is a bit challenging.

      I think I’ll use cardboard to make a structure rigid enough to support my weight (75kg ~= 165 lb) while giving the ship the shape of an origami paper ship, but with the middle part half truncated to have a seat :)

      I’ll eventually craft a steampunk pirate costume, and I think about a eyepath with the TSU logo, which will also be on a flag held up in the air.

      During the travel (2-3km, about 1.5 miles), I think I’ll either sing or challenge tourist, speaking to them about anything that may come to mind. I’ll end up boarding a houseboat transformed in a bar, where I spend most of my free time :)

       

      Waiting for you thoughs, idea, advices or anything that this project make you think about !

      Ideas:

      • rigid structure w/ e.g. metal rods (as the link shared by Gonzo)
      • waterproof cardboard, using either spray or plastic cover

      Impressive :) At least I know I’m not the only one to get that idea :p

      But I’ll also need to row so it won’t be exactly the same thing, but thanks for the idea!

      I love how wonderfully insane this project is. I wish you the best of luck.
