Point of Order please, the Commodore never served on nor commanded a boat.....Please. :)

I served on the Great Lakes - we call everything a boat - even the 1,000 foot freighters.

My dad was a WWII submarine veteran.  I learned from a very early age that submarines are "boats"...everything else is a "target".

And since I flew in Navy patrol planes, they were all, and most especially submarines, "targets"... 🤣

My son decided on joining a ship.  He looked at two of them and choose the one that mainly sails sunfish and other small boats.  He really liked the amount of freedom and control he was given.  They capsized maybe 1 minute after starting, one of the Mates talked them through the process to right the boat from a chase boat.  After that they where busy sailing all over the lake and each time they capsized they were able to right the boat pretty fast.

It is nice seeing him excited about being involved again.
