Awesome! I have noticed before that tires float, but have never used that trick. How does the water not fall through the cracks?

Yeah, tires float, but it's not enough to support the weight of the rest of the boat.
About the other thing: Think about it for a moment. We have two layers of plastic, which overlap. One is on top of the other. Which one? The one that comes from a higher height. The water will always search the easiest way down and not go "up" into the gap. That's why the track doesn't leak.

Small update.

We're not sure when it will be finished as my brother and I, both have plans this summer and would like to finish it together.

I'm hoping for september (before someone steals our plans!)

Awesome! That looks very complex, but still really cool! Can't wait for the full version.

Thanks a lot. You'll have to wait a while for that, I'm afraid :/
