The Answer to Every Boating Question

          "And as far as they see, they  can offer no explanation..."
                                                                      -Natalie Merchant

     I'm not kidding.  The answer to every boating question.  Right here, right now.

     Are you ready?

    Are you sure?

     Here it is:

    It depends.

    Seriously.  No matter what the question, there is never, ever a black and white, cut and dried absolute answer.  Following are examples.

     Do I need a spinnaker?
     It depends.

     Is an aluminum hull better than fiberglass?
     It depends.

     Can a vessel be considered "fully equipped"  without a bottle of rum?
     .... Okay, there might be one question that can firmly be answered  "no."
