MOST people are satisfied in carving out a pumpkin to create an Halloween face, but one fella has gone much further.

PumpkinbotTom Pearcy has created a pumpkin boat, with the photograph showing him paddling it along the Ouse in York, much to the surprise of onlookers and boaters, Alan Tilbury reports.

Claiming a world record

It certainly floats and he has mastered its control, and believes it one of a kind and tells that it must be the largest of its kind and is claiming a world record.

It is being put forward as a Guinness World Record, as there is at present no such record for a pumpkin boat.
