I am therefore tempted to conclude that there are slightly more types of pasta than types of boats. We should notice though that the numbers are not different by an awful lot, and so given the inherent uncertainty and weakness of my methodology, I think the more likely answer is that there are roughly as many types of boats as types of pasta, at least to within one order of magnitude.
This is funny
