A paper boat fit for a king

As a kid, I used to make paper boats, which also doubled as hats, from newspapers with my grandfather. I always wished that newspapers were larger so that we could make a boat large enough for the two of us. Something like this:

This particular paper boat was made by German artist Frank Boelter, and is made entirely from Tetrapack (the material used for milk cartons). He claims it should stay afloat for about 40 days, which is far better than the 40 seconds my newspaper boats would float.

Surprisingly, the boat only cost about $220 to make … which seems pretty cheap for a 30 foot vessel, even if it isn’t exactly ocean worthy.
