Baltimore Kinetic Sculpture Race
2019 Race Report: Fake Gnus



Here's a Sculpture!
< Previous Page Next Page >

Fake Gnus

Fake Gnus sported 2 pilots and floatation shaped like rats with horns added and repurposed to gnus, held onto fiberglassed bamboo spars.

These gnus were extraordinarily stable on the water: large full-length pontoons had a factor of safety of at least 10, as they’re less than 10% submerged.

This Annapolis-area team won the Judges’ Fill-in-the-Blank award for alarming the following team to enter the water with smoking dry ice nuggets.

Gnus are also known as wildebeests.

We don’t know why Dylan from the PLATYPUS picked up their award.
