A cardboard houseboat?

There is a chap in England who has taken the idea seriously.
Harry Dwyer, an energetic Self-described “doer of fun stuff” got together with some very talented friends and actually did it. —- Built a small houseboat out of cardboard. And to make it better, he filmed the whole thing and put it on Youtube.

It is an amazing piece of work. The only thing I can think of saying is, if he had just used some plywood instead, he would have created a great little permanent boat. I say “permanent” for we all kind of know in our guts what is going to happen to the “cardboard” houseboat. But the video is so much fun to watch you just have to check it out.

When I was going to junior college, back in the 60’s, I used to drive right past the place that manufactured the “Surfside–6” houseboats.
