    What you need to do is stick an Estes rocket engine in the stern and stick it in the water

    I'm thinking about drilling a hole in the table, running a line from my air compressor and blasting air up into that sail and see how high it will go. What do you think?

    I don't know squat about boats.

    But I'm currently reading, "Two Years Before the Mast".

    Is the model ship you built from that era? .... :cool:

    I believe it's a little later, built in 1869 while TYBTM was in 1835 or so. I read that book, extremely interesting and well written.

    It's a model of the "Cutty Sark". If you look at my picture you can see I glued the name plate on upside down! ;)
