The primary components of the Flying Squid are the squid cuttle hull and the pelican feather sail. This was a fast construct on Congwong Beach after a bush walk around the headland with my son. The outriggers are cut foam pinned on stripped down pelican feathers. The keel is the corner of a plastic chopping board pushed through the hull and held up with a length of bamboo pushed through a cut hole. The whole thing tightened down with a scrap of orange plastic rope. The multi feather sail was just stabbed into the deck. It sailed surprisingly well and steadily made its way out towards the heads.
