Maiden Voyage Of Home Built Boat By College Students Off South Coast Doesn't Go Well; Would-Be Sailors Have To Be Rescued
Craft built from kiddie pools, buckets
Two South Coast college students had an adventure over the weekend they might not be sharing with their parents.
They created a boat out of kids wading pools, and plastic buckets. But, their maiden voyage off of Isla Vista didn’t go well.
They got caught in a current, and had to be rescued at around 2:30 Saturday morning. No one was hurt.
