This is the first installment of my trivia series. This episode has a nautical theme! HOORAY FOR BOATS!!!! 1. What is the origin of the word "starboard"? 2. What was the common term for late model clipper ship made of metal? 3. What was Admiral David Glasgow Farragut's flagship at the battle of Mobile bay? 4. Name the first pure steam ironclad.
PS NO GOOGLE OR INTERNET RESEARCH!!
Bah, these questions are to hard..
The only one i know is number 4, it was a American ship in the American cival war, something with manasass ?
For No. 1 a wild guess off the top of my head would be something to do with the North Star??
Can i buy a hint?
it was a ship. that will be $100.

if you give me the name of Tom Slick's racecar i will give you a real hint.

Anyways, i already know the answer ( cheating a bit, had to call a few people ), it's the french la gloire :D
nope, the first ironclad was made in 1576 by Daimyo of the Oda clan in Japan.
however, i am talking about the first ironclad to be propelled ONLY by steam.
