— At the beginning of the 2012 Anything That Floats race, an anxious Gary Pachek watches as his sons’ Adam and Ethan placed their almost-seaworthy vessel into the Seneca River at Cooper’s Marina for the start of the race. The previous year they sunk as soon as the two engineering students at the University of Rochester entered the water. Evidently, their class work paid off as they made it all the way to the finish this year. Seen in the foreground is Jim Sollecito with his Neptune’s Harvest entry complete with a bow made from an old rusty wheelbarrow and a Trident rudder. Sollecito finished in fourth place. Both teams vow to come back again even stronger next year.
