Paddle Boat

Materials Tools
3"x1 1/2"x1/4" wood
Large craft sticks
1"-2" Rubber band
PVC Ring
E-6000™ glue
Clamp or vise

To run the boat, remove the PVC ring, and wind the paddle up. Don't wind it too tightly or the rubber band may break. Hold the paddle so it doesn't unwind and carefully place in a bathtub of water. Release the paddle and watch it go!

A boat this size doesn't work too well. It's too hard to find rubberbands the right size. It is much better if the boat is 3" to 4" wide. You can then use a larger rubberband and paddle.
