Origami: Boats

I was fiddling around with a piece of paper and all of a sudden, I realized that I could no longer remember by heart how to fold a boat. Something in me died inside. I’ve become a total dull grown-up. After trying a couple of times, I admitted defeat and looked up a video. I found many… of course!

What struck me is that boats can be really different. Some of it may be cultural or based on the body of water nearby. I remember seeing a style of boats in Vietnam for example that I had never seen on the mediterranean or the US. So, I figured I would fold as many boat designs as I think is possible. Over-compensating, I know.

I got started with these.
