also, just because the largest wood size you know of is a 4x4, does not mean they cant make it thicker.


The largest wood size that I know of is a tree. As usual, you're making stuff up and claiming your fiction is about me. It`s not. It`s yours.

You really ought to learn more about a subject before berating other people about it. All-wood ships leak. The bigger they are, the more they leak.

If you were talking about a raft made from particularly large trees, that might be a different matter. But you`re not.

And yes, you can make a boat out of cement. Which is irrelevant to the fact that wooden boats are made of numerous pieces and that wood flexes, so even if you use pitch or some other waterproofing substance in the gaps there are limits to how big you can make it and keep it seaworthy.

Angi, Angi, Angi.... your lack of knowledge is showing.


You're citing the History Channel as a source of truth. Are you serious?

Out of interest, are you claiming that those ships were the results of magic or of alien technology that might as well be magic? It has to be one or the other.

5cats: "Wasn't the Santa Maria the smallest of the three?"

No, The Santa Maria was the largest.

And there is no proof, other than that one text, that the boat actually existed.
