If you use green wood it is fairly fast. The problem comes when the wood warps after being in water a while. Benedict Arnold invaded Canada on boats made from green wood. They started falling apart and he lost most of his supplies.

How many of the show's writers know about this?

The Lannisters will probably fight the unsullied at Casterly Rock (ambush).

Jon will probably unite with Dany IMHO as he is the wonder boy
Littlefinger married her once to Ramsay. Now he could marry her to Robin Arryn and gain control of the Vale, Winterfell and Riverrun (Robin is the son of a Tully).

Tyrion didn't tell Jon in his letter that Daenerys expects him to bend the knee. Tyrion maybe thought he could get the two over this potentially tricky moment with his smooth talking.

But I think his standing with Daenerys will fall once she realises he sent her main force (the unsullied) far away from her beachhead, the dornishmen have not arrived and Olenna has no forces left. (Ominously, Olenna also advised her to ignore wise men).

So this will mean a very tense meeting between D. and J. and they won't get along IMO. Instead of using her dothraki to mine for stone, she'll probably launch an attack on King's Landing on her own (relying on the dragons).

Jon and Danaerys will work it out. After all Jon Snow is her half brother. It should be realized by now that Ned Stark was not Jon Snow's father but his uncle. Jon Snow's mother was Ned's sister who was raped by the mad king and was bearing his child when she was locked away. Why else would the series show Ned (in a flashback scene) and his friend taking on the "finest swordsman" in the 7 Kingdoms in order to be with his sister?

Yes, probably. On second thoughts, I think the bending of the knee part shouldn't be a problem for Jon. After all he did tell the wildlings' leader he should bend the knee to Stannis to save his people. But I don't think things will work out for Jon at first.

Jon is the son of Rheugar Targarian, the mad king's son. He is Danaerys's nephew not brother.

The plot to s7 was given away in that leak back in November 2016. So far everything has been consistent.

According to everything presented in GoT over the years, Jon is the bastard son of Ned Stark.

That's what it seems to be but it's not. Ned took in Jon Snow as his own bastard son in order to protect him.

Never saw that in any of Martins many books nor in the series, nor does Snow have the right hair or features to be related to the Targaryeans.

I think this was revealed in the last episode of season 6.

His eyes, iirc, are the same color as Danaerys. (dark) Which would leave one to believe that they are of same lineage.

Actually, I think there might be a scene where Snow is burned by the dragons and he walks out of the fire ala Danaerys thereby confirming his bloodline.

Of course I could be very, very wrong. I've never read the books but from my repeated viewings of the series, Danaerys and Jon Snow are the 2 main characters who will be left standing when it is all said and done.

Again, that's just my opinion.

(I thought Robb Stark would be the one to win in the end. How wrong was that?)

I think Arya will sneak into Winterfell, see Littlefinger and Sansa in control and assume they've assassinated Jon Snow who has left for his meeting with Dany.

Littlefinger will be lured into the Stark family crypt and Arya will step from behind the Ned Stark tomb/statue and kill Littlefinger while wearing Ned's face.

Littlefinger and the audience will think that Ned's spirit has returned for vengeance until Arya pulls of Ned's face and is revealed in her true form.

This will also secure Sean Bean's royalty income as he almost always makes an appearance in every Season in some sort of flashback (usually of him being beheaded) lol.
