Cardboard with canned foam to seal a window? Man why?

I'd have preferred plastic sheeting and duct tape any day!

Spray foam is the next duct tape. Imagine the possibilities of using the two TOGETHER. You could rule the world if you could somehow wield the power of both.

funny you say that...

I know a guy on Long Island who made a rowboat as a proof of concept from Spray foam, a wooden frame and duct tape as the outer layer...

It floats.

Mythbusters did the duct tape boat too. They were "stranded" on an island and covered a wooden frame. It held up surprisingly well in the surf.

I need to go to Bed Bath and Beyond and stock up on this miracle worker. Flex Seal is the way of the future.
