I thought we'd say goodbye to Lewis and Clark in style. So this weekend, my son and I built a replica of the famous Corps of Discovery keelboat. We used the most historically accurate material available--LEGO!
You can see the cabin at the back, the covered steering awning, and the mounted muskets. In the center is the collapsable mast that they would use to catch the wind. (I didn't use the mast in the cartoon, but it looks cool on the model.)
Here's a close-up of Lewis, Seaman (the dog) and Clark--about to jump overboard.
