(Project) Garboatage  (Korpoström, Finland - 2019)  11 m x 2 m x 2.6 m (37 ft), recycled plastic rowing boats, ropes and recycled plastic bottles

Garboatage is a floating sculpture project made out of local collected rowing boats sewed together and fulfilled with collected plastic bottles.
The Garboatage sculpture will probably be realized for the projected Ocean Plastic exhibition at the Archipelago Centre Korpoström, scheduled in spring and summer 2019.
Garboatage is an attempt to become a local boat builder in Korpoo and a navigator in the Archipelago.
A first navigation test on Garboatage will be performed during the exhibition.


Here are some examples of rowing boats that might be collected
