After looking at fish, airplanes, birds, and other things that move through a fluid media ( air or water ), why are boats made backwards? Will they work if they where turned around? Should I build one turned around and find out? Whats up here?
Because "birds and fish"don't run on the surface, don't have to face waves. Whitch would win a race,a deep V or a barge ? Sail boats cut through the water,not plow. Tie a string to the back of a boat,and pull it,than to the front and pull. whitch took less effort??
