History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The oldest form of boat Coracle - an almost hemispherical bowl of boat - is large enough to carry at least one Sophont and powered by said Sophont using an Oar. (Punts are the only watercraft that are older).

Earliest Rowing Boats are dug-out logs, followed by plank-boats followed by more complex boatbuilding technologies.
