29 January 2010


On our trip to Coast Guard with our Parisian guests, I resumed work on my raft. Weeks back, when the students were still here, I started collecting discarded objects on the beach necessary for its construction. You can find quite a lot of stuff washed up in remote places. On this trip, I had more time to assemble it and take it for a test run.


Finishing Touches

Proud of my creation.

I found that the bamboo I used, however, took on water rather quickly and so it rode low in the water. Next time I'll look for buoys and empty jugs to attach for extra flotation. I'll also need a sail.

At Sea

A successful maiden voyage.
