    If i were to use a square shaped aluminum foil. What would be the best design for a penny barge. I was thinking a boatshaped one, but i realized its hard to fold a boat without retangular paper

    Who is going to load the pennies onto the barge? You might be able to get away with a really flimsy barge if you are able to add the pennies strategically to spread the load.
