The Miss Rockaway Armada is a theater group building a floating fleet of junk/recycled boats, taking then down the Mississippi holding workshops and performing along the way – “We’re building this boat entirely from salvaged materials. Wood dumpstered and begged from construction sites, buckets of screws donated by kind crew members, rope found on the sidewalk, and blocks of foam from both coasts…Our engines are a work of genius (thanks Chicken and Anton!): 2 Volkswagen Rabbit diesel engines converted to run on waste vegetable oil (used fryer grease!) will power the propellor. The motors will have an alternator from a police car that’ll keep our deep cell batteries charged (so we can have things like lights).” [via] – Link.

    And everyone else that helped/ cleaned up chicken and antons mess they left at the shipyard workspace in berkeley (including the not vegie oil, but motor oil spill on our floor)
