My physics teacher gave us kind of a cool end of the year project: To construct a boat made entirely out of newspaper, masking tape, and shellack (I think this is the proper spelling). The boat will then have to go from end to end in a pool and the first person who does so wins. My idea is basically to take chicken wire and bend it into the shape of a kayak, then layering the newspaper sheet by sheet using shellack as a bonding agent. My main concern will be that when the person sits in the boat, the newspaper will rip! Any ideas on alternate designs or suggestions on how to improve my present design? Any advice is much appreciated! Thanks.
