Cura does not slice this properly. There appears to be some issues around the holes in the front of hull. The same occured on different versions of Cura. Unfortunately I have no other slicer to try. I did try to print it like this but the holes obviously came out very poorly.

I see no issues with Cura 4.1. Will print it now in .2 layer height.

6 bottom layers on mine at 100% scale floats fine

I find it unexpectedly pleasing to behold printed at 250% size. it's HUGE sitting on my desk. Thanks!

This needs supports?

Behold, micro-benchy! Just a scaled down version, I think it was 25%...

Didn't float for me. 10% infill. It is too top heavy.

how many outlines were printed?

Mine floated though I made it a bit too heavy on infill it still kept itself upright.

Mine all float great, though they capsize easily my toddler is really happy to finally have ones that really float! Thanks so much for sharing.

This looks great! I'll let you know if mine float :)
