A group of friends, family and strangers came together to help build the boat, which was completed on Columbus Day 2001. "It kind of took on a life of its own," said Pollack (wearing the Michigan hat). " I think one of the reasons why so many people were keen to give corks and to work on the boat is because everyone wants to be part of something bigger than themselves."
