Image Description: Humans have been traveling around in boats for tens of thousands of years. During most of that time, boats have been built from wood. This is because wood is lightweight, resilient, and strong due to its great stiffness. Before the widespread use of fiberglass, our ancestors built their boats by hollowing and shaping giant logs with simple stone tools and fire. Things did change over time, and now there are a variety of ways to put a boat together. One very popular way is to edge-fasten planks with pegs or spine; this way does make repairing a wooden boat easy as one plank can be removed and a new one fitted easily back in. Sail or paddle boats are a great eco-friendly way to spend a summer holiday or vacation!
