About one hundred people circled the Hennessey Aquatic Center Monday evening to cheer on their favorite boat crew.  The rules were the boat had to be built from nothing but cardboard and duct tape.  It had to carry a 2 person crew one lap back and forth across the pool, then change crew and do it again. There were 8 teams that participated in the event each with a unique design and name.
