The Kids used GPS units to map it out perfectly so it was a math lesson, along with Phy Ed, art, and Geography. They used jeans for the water, 550 pairs to be exact, and sheets for the sail. All of it will be donated to the Dakota Boys Ranch.

For proof that it was the biggest in the world. An airplane flew over to take pictures. Our own nerd fact, Dom, their ship will be almost the size of the stature of liberty.
