Re: What's the Difference Between . . .

A ship can carry a boat and a boat can carry a dink and a dink can be rowed.

I'm often a mug, especially when I have too many mugs. Tomorrow is not a good day for a mug shot.

Re: What's the Difference Between . . .

Yacht not for whom the bell buoy tolls, it tolls for sea.

Not sure what to do next? Ship or get off the yacht.

A boater is a straw hat but a straw poll is not a mast or gin pole.

A dink is a dinghy is a tender is a captain's gig and in some quarters is called a toad.

Re: What's the Difference Between . . .

A boat is what you sail home in after the ship sinks.
