    When I was a freshman in high school, we had a science project wherein we had to create rafts from recyclable materials (plus duct tape and twine to hold it together), which we would then race in the school’s swimming pool (each raft had to carry one person across).

    My group decided to use plastic gallon milk jugs. We got a bunch of these things and strapped them all together with duct tape, and then wrapped the completed raft in industrial-sized plastic garbage bags.

    Of the six “rafts” that went into the water, only two made it to the other side of the pool. Our raft not only won the race, but our oarsman was the only one who stayed completely dry.

    I am planning the same kind of raft made of recycled bottles but in industrial strength to cross the Atlantic from New York to Europe. Can you help?
