eyewitness boat
 
   To explore, to travel, to trade, to fish, to fight and for fun - people take to the water for all these reasons. For thousands of years, they have been developing new ways to make being on the water easier, safer, and quicker. The earliest crafts were simple rafts and floats. But then the hollow shell which sat on the water - probably a hollowed log - was invented. This was the boat, an invention as important as the wheel. Still used all over the world, the wooden boat is the ancestor of the great sailing ships and the huge ferries and container ships of today. There are now many hundreds of different types of boat and ship, made from every material imaginable, from reeds or animal skins to plastic, fibreglass, iron, and steel.

In the 1960s, many attractive coastal areas were still relatively free from pleasure boats; today it can be difficult to find a suitable mooring place for the night.
