I was wondering... could you make a boat out of a piece of furniture? A bookshelf? A chair? A table, for example?
If it's made of wood and it floats, could you jury rig a sail and some kind of steering oar and actually sail the thing?
Has anybody ever done this? To rescue themselves after a shipwreck, perhaps? Or as part of some crazy fun challenge at a sailing club?
Vice versa, can you convert a boat into a piece of furniture? An Optimist into a coffee table? A Sunfish into a settee?
What do you think?
