funk Austronesian Shipbuilding is unjustly ommitted![edit]

The ship building techniques of the overrated Greeks and Egyptians were mentioned but that of the Austronesians/Malays were not, despite the fact that they have settled 2/5 of the world's ocean surface and have been sea-farers at least 1000 years before the Egyptians.

How could wikipedia do such a thing! A culture and civilization so successful and proficient in shipbuilding is totally ignored!!!! This is a great injustice! And is a disrespect for the 10% of humanity who are descended from the Malays (talk) 08:51, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

First iron hulled ship?[edit]

The article would be improved with a mention of the first ocean-going ship with a metal hull. Some sources claim that this was Brunel's SS Great Britain, but there seems to be disagreement on this.--TraceyR (talk) 11:22, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked
