Cardboard Harley-Davidson Boat Wins Glen Ellyn Regatta

Jim Craig of Glen Ellyn, Illinois, built this Harley-Davidson Road King replica cardboard boat in his garage to compete in the Glen Ellyn Cardboard Boat Regatta July 4. The 21-foot-long boat, constructed entirely of cardboard, stands 9-feet tall, weighs about 200 pounds (1,500 pounds with eight-man crew), took over 200 hours to build, and contains about 12 gallons of wood glue. The project was a resounding success, as Jim and crew won the Fastest Time and Best in Show awards at the Glen Ellyn Cardboard Boat Regatta.

“I named our boat ‘Made in USA’ since Harley-Davidson is a great American brand,” Jim said. “The boat was a big hit, a recognizable motorcycle to many of the 4,000 people who came to the regatta.”
