Functional, full-sized dory-boat made from newspapers

A reader writes, "Reverend Rob Murray in Pinawa Manitoba Canada was pining for the ocean. He built a dory out of wall paper paste and the local newspaper. With a couple coats of varathane to keep the paper and water separate she floats! Unfortunately the closest salt water from his doorstep on the Winnipeg River is Churchill on Hudson's Bay." (No word on whether he remembered to pack a tin-opener for the pineapple slices.)
