    Raft

    Raft
    The raft was built as early as civilization started traveling through water. The Greeks and the Phoenicians were the most sea-fairing people and built large cargo ships out of rafts. The raft was very simple to make being that it had either oak logs or ash logs tied together because they are more boyant. The raft had no sail and very little man power witch made it hard to float up stream on a river or sail across a whole ocean without capsizing.
