The Good Ship Lollipop

Viking ship made out of lollipop sticks to cross Atlantic?

A Dutchmen wants to sail to the US in a full scale replica of a Viking ship made out of millions of lollipop sticks.

Robert McDonald, from Emmeloord, has just beaten his own record by sailing on a boat made out of 370,000 lollypop sticks.

He stayed afloat for 19 minutes in the boat which was three metres long and nearly two metres wide, reports the Nu news website.

Now, he's planning to build a full scale viking ship that will be 15 metres long, three metres wide and made out of 15 million lollipop sticks.

He will call it the Big OlaBison will first attempt to keep the boat, and a crew of seven, afloat for 15 minutes.

Mr McDonald said: "If everything goes well and the big ship doesn't sink, I will try in the near future to sail with the same ship from Urk in Holland to Key West in the United States."

In 2000, he gained a place in the Guinness Book of Records by making a small replica of the ship The Seven Provinces out of 18,000 lollypop sticks.


The longest he has kept a boat floating is 19 minutes...and he wants to sail one from Urk to Key West..... :-o

This guy has waaay too much time on his hands.

Nifty though, I hope he makes it. .. .

You know, the Atlantic is filled with pirates and all. They don't take kindly to Viking Ships, ESPECIALLY those made out of lollipops.
