How does a boat work? What kind of ship carries planes? How is a boat steered? This book looks at types of boats and ships that are used for travel, work, and fun. Kayaks use paddle power. Hydrofoils have wings to lift them out of the water. Aircraft carriers are big enough for planes to take off and land on them!
