Outlaw Cardboard Boat Race

The first time I covered the Riverhead Cardboard Boat race was in 2013. A crowd of more than 1,500 people wrapped around the Peconic Riverfront on a sunny, hot Sunday in June. In a shady spot, I came across Patrick White wearing a baseball hat with a handmade seagull fastened to it. He was down on one knee, working furiously with a magic marker as he put the finishing touches on his first cardboard boat, The Poop Deck.
