Banksy’s boat sculpture can be yours for $2.50, if you can guess its weight

The irony is that everyone will finally want a boat full of refugees.

Banksy has announced that he’s raffling off a sculpture of a boat that previously featured in his Dismaland ‘bemusement park’.

The only catch is you have to correctly guess how much it weighs. Here’s how the street artist’s contest works:

Go to Choose Love – the first store in the world that lets you buy practical gifts such as tents, sleeping bags, and diapers, for refugees – then pay the A$3.46 fee and guess the item’s weight.

. I'm raffling one of the boats from Dismaland for £2 at www.choose.love Fully remote controlled, top speed 3 knots, batteries included. Just guess how much it weighs. It’s on display at the pop-up Help Refugees shop. 30 Fouberts Place, Carnaby Street, London until competition closes 22nd December.

The coin-operated boat measures 90cm x 38cm x 42cm (2.95ft x 1.25ft x 1.38ft), and comes with batteries and a remote control.

It runs at a top speed of three knots (five feet per second).
