In this thread, we will discuss the merits of different means of aquatic transport and their historical implications. This will be an intertextuality discussion involving history, science, engineering, marine biology, and even fitness. So what do people think? What is the optimal method of transportation across large bodies of water? Personally, I have to go with the quinquereme; faster than a hexereme and more stopping power than a trireme. Missa ab iPhona mea est. Edit: apologies, I spelled "row" wrong. Blame autocorrect.
