Boat in a Bottle


It’s Boat in a Bottle Day! Here’s something I learned about them from a museum I visited during the summer. (Quoted from my personal blog)

Did you know how they make ships in bottles? The boat part is small enough to fit through the bottle’s neck, and the sails are all folded down and attached to a string. The boat is slid into the bottle, then the string is pulled, and the sails go up. Voila! You’ve got a boat in a bottle.
