In the 2012-2013 year, WECCA constructed two different canoes. The first canoe, aptly named Ragnarok after the end of the world in Norse mythology, was unsuccessful. The team attempted a new and innovative casting method which consisted of a male mould and half a female mould. The concrete was then placed in between the two moulds. This method although innovative, faced several challenges on casting day, and resulted in major stress cracks and inconsistencies. This resulted in the team choosing a much more conventional casting method for the second canoe.
