I read it as boat too! But the float is really cool! What a really neat experience and special object to remember it by!!
We have a big Renaissance Festival with a couple of glass-blowing set-ups and I've always been fascinated by the process! Fortunately DH is equally fascinated so he's willing to sit and watch the glass-blowing with me. :-D One day maybe we can take a class together or something. That would be too cool!!
