Canal Boat - - News -

THIS UN­LIKELY LOOK­ING ves­sel is a 16ft-long paper boat which took to the Forth & Clyde Canal in Glas­gow’s Mary­hill area re­cently. It was launched as part of the Speirs Lock Sum­mer Party day of events, arts, mu­sic and ac­tiv­i­ties sup­ported by Scot­tish Canals.

The ‘origami paper boat’ was the brain­child of Ger­man artist Frank Böl­ter who spe­cialises in origami projects. A team of 15 as­sem­bled from the lo­cal com­mu­nity put it to­gether in a cou­ple of hours, added a wa­ter re­sis­tant coat­ing, car­ried it 500 me­tres, launched it and cruised off down the Glas­gow Arm of the canal. friend­soft­he­bridg­wa­terand­taunton­canal. btck.co.uk for more.
