I agree the lines are foggy, however, I would say only 'Knotty Gurl' is a boat, as it uses air to float (unless I have misunderstood). All the...
Its a problem with the linking. Think you have to copy and paste the whole line in or something. Will try to fix.
And the outer shell is not watertight at all? If so, then I suppose its a raft, from your description.
Not necessarily - unsinkable boats are watertight, no? I would personally class a watertight hull filled with foam as a boat.
I agree, however,...
I'll go with the Floating Neutrino's definition:
A boat floats because of its shape and watertightness such, and a raft floats because of the...
Nice craft! How was the 'hull' constructed - are they the inflatable rib things (not sure if that is the correct term)?

A rudder would...
Ok. As I said (or thought...not quite sure) - I will experiment with smaller rafts and stuff (have one in the backyard but need to get a...
Ok - here is an updated design with the recent considerations put into effect
Right - next...
@Submarine Tom - yeah, but it needs to be a near-permanent dwelling, and a tent isn't really suitable for this.
I want to make the design simple - I know I haven't really said, but I have gone off the idea of human power for a vessel this size, which is...
No, no, no - the stretch of navigable river near me is 10 miles long (I know it's short, but there you go). There is NO WAY I would go that far...
Is it EXACTLY half a boat, or just 'nearly' half a boat?
