Yes, I was actually born in the hold of a fishing trawler off the coast of Antarctica. (When the interviewer says, "Really?", I say, "No. But yes, I have been on a boat."

I have been always sailing on new boats taking adventures & exploring sea's.

I've been on four powered boats, two sail boats, a ski-doo, a rowboat, and a canoe in the water and six powered boats in show rooms, and on one ship, the LST-325. I was also in a submarine at Disneyland. That was an electric boat.

First I would start describing a boat in detail to make sure I understand the question clearly. Then, never answer the question.

Yes, I used to love sailing it close to the beach on Isola del Giglio and waving at the nice ladies on the beach.

I was in a horrible boating accident... I spent days at sea a drift on the floating wreckage... I was the only survivor. (queue awkward silence).
