My school has a creek that runs through it. We have boat races every year. Everyone decided to make they're boat out of paper, plastic, popcicle sticks, or french fry trays while I made mine out of wood. Carved wood. It is a model from the Civil War. Ther name is moniter I beleive. I think the materials are obviously easy to see, but if I'm wrong you feel free to ask me anything.
