Montrealers Spotted Sailing A Picnic Table Down The Lachine Canal

A group of Montrealers got a little inventive over the weekend and did what pretty much no one would ever think to do, and crafted a boat of sorts out of a picnic table and floated it down the Lachine Canal.

Complete with a motor and a pirate ship-esque flag, the boat was able to hold up 8 people as they sailed their way down the canal in the sunshine this weekend.

We've got to give them props for both their creativity and the fact that they were actually able to pull this off successfully. I don't know about you but I would personally love to take a spin on this thing. I mean who else can say that they've been on a picnic table boat!?
