Ned said:I doubt that Tom's boat would be listed in Jane's Fighting Ships and certainly not in Jane's All the World's Aircraft. However, he might make Jane's All the World's Holes in the Water if they published one
You got me Carl, I have no idea who or what "Jane's" is

If it were me, I'd steer away from that submarine that just surfaced, but I suspect this is a trick question
Whopee! I made 5 points. Not bad for a fresh water guy eh? What do I need to do to get the remaining 95 points?
BTW California DBW has a home-study boating course with a test that can be mailed in for a certificate. Rumor has it that, before too long, they plan to make the test a prerequisite to being allowed to take the helm. Warning - some of the questions are like some of those academically demanding CA DMV test questions - "Is a car an automobile or does it have wheels? Only one correct answer."

..hopefully, the State will allow completion of either a US Power Squadrons or a US Coast Guard Auxiliary boating course. ... Either course is excellent and cheap.
LOL we wouldn't make it through the filters. That trip, we headed out the Golden Gate and turned south. Here's an abbreviated log of that trip with some photos.
