Sea Scouts Start Construction of "Rolling Tide"

A well thought out construction plan helped to rapidly build the skeleton of "Rolling Tide", a vessel that is to be the Sea Scout Ship's entry in the Great Lake Erie Boat Float II highlighting the use of recycled plastics.  

Above Gabriel is seen threading the Tide bottles on the skeleton up to a point 45 degrees from the first cross 2x4 member.  The cross members  were bolted on using 1/4 x 3 1/2" carriage bolts. 

Darkness descended before the skeleton was completed but a great start had been made.  Skipper Gash complemented the crew and said, "This sure looks like a winner, maybe not the fastest craft but certainly the most unique".
