Huge Success and Turn Out!

The inaugural Tallahassee Cardboard Boat Race is back at the dock after a successful day of fun and excitement. We raised over $1500 for veteran housing with over 250 people in attendance! Not bad for our first race!

We appreciate our sponsors for their faith in us to pull it off:

Great Crowd!

Two Sponsors!

We are grateful to the first two sponsors to sign on for the Inaugural Tallahassee Cardboard Boat Race & Homebuilt Boat Show!

Boat Builder Central is a boat builder’s dream! They offer plans, marine plywood, epoxy, fiberglass, paint, and all the other hull building supplies. They have the best customer service department and most packages get to Tallahassee within 2 days. They even host a boat-building forum and provide rapid responses for assistance. Great company and we are proud to have them on board!

Marpan Container Services is the refugee container disposal leader in Tallahassee. Whether you call it a dumpster, garbage container, trash can, roll-off, front-end loader, rear-end loader, or recycling container, Marpan Supply is your one-stop source for all your waste and recycling removal needs. Not only do they supply you with the specific type of dumpster you need, when you call them to pick it up, Marpan takes it to their state-of-the-art recycling facility in Tallahassee and makes sure that they recycle as much of your construction dumpster and demolition debris or single-stream recycling as possible. Hopefully, they can recycle as much of our event as possible!

Thank you to both of these great businesses for making this event possible!
