Maybe not a boat that goes in the ocean. But a boat for a calm lake? [Totally, says Chicken John](http://chickenjohn.wordpress.com/2009/06/29/i-don%E2%80%99t-accept-or-give-excuses%E2%80%A6/). Like, I think this boat is made out of duct tape:

His post has a few other examples. Great inspiration for Ephemerisle, whose website is now up at [ephemerisle.org](http://ephemerisle.org). If you’re in the Bay Area and want to practice for Ephemerisle, check out Chicken John’s [Camp Tipsy](http://camptipsy.wordpress.com/faq/) event, which involves [a competition for the worst homebuilt boat](http://camptipsy.wordpress.com/contest-rules/) (which floats for at least 7 minutes). It will be on August 1st.
