    I've been on ships and ferries, but never an actual boat which I find odd. Still if given the chance I would always choose jet sking over being on a boat.

    I used to go fishing a lot when I was younger, mostly with my great uncle. I also used to live near several lakes, so we would go boating every once and awhile. I also took a tour of the USS Midway when I was in San Diego, it was pretty neat.

    I did not step a single foot on a boat while in the Navy though.

    I've been on boats and I hate them. The sea is not for me. I didn't get seasick or anything, I just felt a very strong anxiety about not being on dry land. But that's probably just my aquaphobia

    Boat stories!

    When I was about 12 or so, my dad and I went fishing on my uncle's fishing boat. It was decent-sized and could get upwards of 45-50 mph in the open water. As we were moving along at 15-20 mph out of the dock area, I was sitting up by the bow (front) of the boat. My uncle cautioned me that I might want to move back, but I said I was fine, and I liked the view from the bow. My uncle did not repeat the warning or explain the reason for it before he simply hit the accelerator, and the boat started speeding through the water.

    Soon we hit a decent sized wave in the water which caused the front of the boat to fly into the air -- and me with it. When the boat slammed back into the water, inertia left me hanging several feet above the boat; if I had not quickly grasped the railing in my hand (and my arm was fully extended upwards), I would have almost certainly flown overboard. Then I came crashing down into the boat, slamming my back on bench.

    I moved to the back of the boat.

    You'll be fine, you're equipped with flotation devices.

    I've been on a lot of ferries. That's what happens when you live in coastal Norway.

    Yes and it was a terrible experience, it was a pontoon boat. That should be sufficient explanation by itself but I suppose I should also mention that I ended up hooking my aunt with a giant catfish hook in the face and my uncle almost killed me for it.

    Because I'm one hell of a butler.
