and

Rope is never called rope?

and line is never cable?

Rigging is standing and running. Rigging doesn't really run. Rigging doesn't stand.

Spars are masts, booms, yardarms etc... BUT only a boom is a spar?

A bollard is never a cleat? But can cleat to a bollard?

The steering wheel is the WHEEL but it's always at the Helm?

A turnbuckle hasn't any buckle in it.

A pilot house is called that but do all boats have pilots?

"keel" is always used to mark steel. But steel will really mark your keel!

Heeling is not listing. Listing doesn't mean your selling your boat.

You can have sheaves without blocks but you can never have a block without a sheave!

Why do we go on like this??
