Golden Relievers entry for the Mocathlon in category 28 - Will it float?
About this creation


The West Glouster Automobile Syndicate's Hydro Ferry is designed for short hops carrying small cars across the Glouster Bay, which is located in a remote region of Dangitscoldhere. And that's about as much story as you're going to get out of me on this one.







Now for the big question -- will it float?






To quote the great Al Michaels: "Do you believe in miracles? Yes!"
The photos in the tub were taken in quick succession -- they're blurry because floating things tend to drift.




Note: The cars are not part of the build -- yes, they're straight from the box per the instructions -- I put them on the thing for effect.

Dude, I don't think that thing is really floating. Oh...you posted proof you say? Well that's what I get for being a day late and a dollar short to the blame train! To be honest I can't believe anyone would doubt you on it to begin with. You have way better things to do with your time than cheat at a LEGO competition....you know like grade papers!

@ Tyler - I didn't realize one of the judges had stepped down and had asked you to take their place. If Dennis says it floats, then it floats. So consider closing your mouth, breathing through your nose, and get building. As for this moc - it is fugly! Two (2) points to you for having the stones to post this thing. Lee.

2 points. I posted a longer comment, but it didn't make it through, and I'm too lazy to re-write it.

I really don't care how you made it float (though I figured it had something to do with that underside you weren't showing). I wish you had spent a little more time making this interesting since you used the hull to make it float. 2 points. (I bet you hate us for this category at this point).

Looks like the ferry is floating to me. Wow, that is one ugly ferry. Nice work! My daughter has this category and so far 3 tries have all sunk! (She is trying something with the boats like you did now, that one keeps falling over)

What it lacks in beauty it makes up in floatability. Bet it didn't float too long, huh. GL with the rest of the judges. see ya. garth

How is this for odd's? You quote Al Michael's "Do you believe in miracles? Yes!" and Miller time puts up an awesome perfomance with 42 saves as USA beats Canada 5-3...spooky! Oh yeah, awesome build!

Tyler. If Dennis says it floats, then it floats. He's not going to lie about something like this. Secondly, if you need proof, look at the way the shadow falls in the first floating pic. See how on the backside of the MOC, the shadow is elongated backwards and cuts off under the wheel. The shadow is too long out of the back of the boat for it to be sitting on the bottom. For comparison, look at the shortness of the shadow on the dry land pic above it. This thing IS floating. he wouldn't have posted it if it didn't. ~ Chris.

I really doubt that is floating. it looks infinately heavier than mine and I tried those wheels to support a regular thin plate. they failed. i don't believe this one.

As I did for a previous entry in this theme, I need to ask you a question before actually judging: does it float, or is it laying on the tub's bottom under that shallow layer of water? Were you worried about the bill? I will trust your word on it like I did before, but if you get the chance to take pics with more water, tell the judges I gave the OK.
