I'm sure Abraham Lincoln was a very wise man, but
if the halyard should be long enough to reach the ground, wouldn't the required length vary according to water depth?
I guess I'll never be smart enough to be president.
I think I'll just go see a show....
One day a man asked Abraham Lincoln how long a man's legs should be.
Abraham Lincoln answered:
"Long enough to reach the distance between his body and the floor".
And that pretty much answers your question
