    If you are in or near Troy New York check out the paper boat built for the Harvard racing team back in the early 1860's. It is still in fantastic shape for its age and material.

    I have been researching paper boats for years. Please email me with any info you have on paper boats. I have been unable to ascertain much info about the rope or linen paper that was used because of its long fibers which made the paper much stronger. All info on types of paper, manufacture, and glues appreciated.
