Talkin' bout boats, here's another strange one - this time, from China:
A Chinese schoolteacher is preparing to cross the 112 mile-wide Taiwan Straits in a paper boat.
Zhu Yalin, a chemistry teacher in Meishan, Sichuan province, has arrived in Xiamen to build his boat.
"Not only is the whole boat made of paper, but the glue is an organic material - cooked flour soup," he told the Straits Guidance Daily.
