Pykrete Boat Sets Sail

Jem Stansfield launches his ice boat in a mission to sail across the Solent estuary before the boat melts. The material used to make the boat is Pykrete - a combination of frozen water and wood pulp or hemp. Although the material holds firm in the water, the boat gets into trouble and starts to sink, forcing the presenters to bail out!
