    Look at these two boats! They are incredible! My friend made them by hand using only a visual image in his head, matches and Elmer's glue. He used string and some cotton fabric for the sails and for the firing guns he used spent shot gun shells. The hulls are equip with wooden match stick ladders, there's also matchstick lifeboat, a treasure chest and anchor. Said he lost count of how many matches it took to complete them. He also forgot exactly how long the project took but knows he spent about a year on the biggest one.
