Beavers Take to the Sea in the Boat Float Challenge

Buena Vista University hosted the third Beavers’ Annual Great Boat Float Challenge on April 28, 2011 on the west shore of Scout Park. Students, faculty and staff put their homemade cardboard boats to the test as they competed for trophies and bragging rights.

The boats are made primarily of corrugated cardboard. Use of duct tape, carpenter’s wood glue, quick dry caulk, and a one-part paint or sealant that meet federal and state environmental standards are allowed to aid structural integrity.
