Been thinking about having Landon bury a "time capsule" in the foam under the sole.

Any thoughts on what a good container would be?
Current ideas are a plastic peanut butter jar or a glass Mason jar.

You could warm up some water, pour it in a cooler and then put the jugs in there. If you get it too warm it will foam right from the start.

I would go with the peanut butter jar. Extra chunky of course :lol:

Love the time capsule idea and a sturdy plastic jar would be my pick, or a PVC tube with end caps.

If it is under the sole, embedded in the foam, he would have to cut the sole out to get to it?

Yes. But the intent wouldn't be for that to happen any time soon. Say 30+yrs.......

Was thinking it would be a good tradition to start with all I build as I dont see myself stopping anytime soon either.

Yes.. that has been the plan since the beginning. Had I somehow given a different impression?

So what happens if the boat lasts even longer? You are building it pretty good!

Then instead of, "grandpa built this with your daddy when he was 8yrs old" it will be "grandpa built this with your great granddaddy when he was only 8yrs old"

It's a time capsule not an impatient capsule :)
(Unlike the Mason jar we had sticking half out of our front lawn for a few months before he dug it up again a year or two ago(all his idea and execution start to finish))
