The Races!
Pphoto essay of Races for the 2001 Merrimack Library Cardboard Boat Festival!


So, just what DOES a cardboard boat look like?  Would you beleive, a Kiyak?   A Riverboat? A Lobster boat?  Well, of course you would!  How about a Guitar?  VW Beetle?  Starship?  Well!  Add to that list dragons, shark

The images below are a sampling of the pictures taken that day.  They are shown in chronological order, making it easier to find races you may be looking for, if you know when you raced.  I am truely sorry, but I don't have the names of all of the boats or crews with me, so you have to fill in the descriptions as best you can.  If I get email with details and clarifications, I will update these pages.
