Whoa... can you imagine eating 15 million ice cream bars to get the raw materials? That's dedication.

You have to admire their dedication. What is his next project - to make a trireme out of matchsticks?

I thought we had the prize for the wierdest boats with the annual "beer can regatta" in Darwin ( for boats built from beer cans); and the Todd River regatta in Alice Springs - people running in formation in a boat type frame up and down a dry river bed in Central Australia.

Do it however you can, just enjoy your boating!!
