Hello,
I was thinking about this:
since we already have a seaplane, give it the shape of a ship with a maximum velocity not even close to stall speed and we would have a mannable ship; rudder, power, all is already there. Furthermore, this "plane" could have large cannons technically corresponding to the gun stations: a drivable ship with mannable cannons...
Ok, i know it, it seems (and mostly is) a joke, but i must also admit that it is somewhat interesting thinking about the possibility. What do you think?
