Lego Challenge #17: Boats and Buoyancy

Inspired by Sam's Lego Quest, (which is no longer active),  I wanted to start a 
weekly Lego challenge 
that kids can do and you can link up to. 
This linky has been open for a whole year, and will be closed soon. If you want to link up, please do so this week. 
With the photo, please give your child's age, what country (or, if the the US, what state) you are from and anything your child wants to say about his or her creation.This can be simple or extremely complex, it's up to you. The only real rule is that it has to be custom built. Your own creation, not a pre-designed one.
You can write a separate post for the challenge or you can just add the photo of your child's entry for the challenge to a weekly wrap-up post.


Lego Challenge #17: Boats and Buoyancy
Can you create a marine vessel out of LEGO that floats?

You may need to experiment with several designs until you create one that works the way you want it to.
You could place heavier objects like marbles or coins in your boat to see how many it can hold before it sinks.
I would like your photo submission to show your creation in water, either floating, or perhaps in its sunken state, whichever you choose.
Here is some great information about buoyancy to get you started.

I would also like to bring to your attention to the post...
With the photo of your child's creation, please give your child's age, what country (or, if the the US, what state) you are from and anything your child wants to say about his or her creation.
