Hooker encouraged his Cub Scouts to make their boats at home if they chose, although he brought along plenty of materials for those who didn’t or those whose boats weren’t seaworthy. One lesson he learned: Thick slabs of foam packing material tend to stick to the gutters when wet. “It essentially acts as a brake,” he says. “We had a couple of Tigers almost hyperventilate trying to blow their boats forward.”


The other lesson Hooker learned


was to recruit a few extra parents to help with construction and repairs, especially when scissors and glue guns are involved. “Some of that construc- tion can be tough for them to do when they’re very anxious to run back and race again,” he says. Crump, who held the splash-filled


event indoors, learned a more funda- mental lesson: “Next time, I would bring a mop.” ¿
