1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Newspaper Boat- So I have been thinking about designing a newspaper boat out of pure entertainment. I want to build a boat out of shellack, tape, and newspaper, to maximize speed (to race people in swimming pools). considering i have some amount of these supplies, what would be the best design? how should I go about doing this? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I've thought of building a boat in the shape of a kayak, since kayaks seem to go the fastest with their thin build. but how should I layer the boat with newspaper and tape/shellack? any ideas/hints? any good websites for researching into this? Thanks!
