New boat design

House boat in India

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.

Re: New boat design

Re: New boat design

Not really anything new about that... All based on stuff they've been building for centuries.

My mom and brother did a cruise on one of these a few years ago, I think on the Ganges. Some of them even have air conditioning.
