About this creation
Team: Bricks for Breakfast
21. Will It Float?
Several years ago, Dave Kaleta challenged his students to build floating creations.
http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/195480
Now, the challenge is passed on to you. Build the biggest and/or best looking floating creation you can manage. You must provide a picture of the object maintaining position above the water line, aka floating.

Disaster has struck! The ship's cabin has been completely torn off, and at the end of the storm the crew is left with a barely floating ship - and they're removing the wreckage and bailing as fast as they can!


Shaaark! (I had a red bucket at first. And who but my brother would think of taking such a picture?)


The pirate Captain does his best to fend the shark off (without falling off himself)!


The ship before I "wrecked" it. And after, since I built it back...


Upper Deck:


The crew (well, sort of):


Well this was a tough one. For the record, once taken apart, the ship maintains it's "above the waterline" position very well. I tried to get it to float while still in one piece... but... you know how it goes... I hope you understand that it's creative and not a cop-out!

And the boat is also a "piggy" bank! Watch it in action here!

The ship wreck idea is clever, and nicely executed. Go for it.
