Catalina274me, JohnRPollard said that to clarify that on a boat the "walls"
are called ceilings
and that the "ceiling"
is actually referred to as an overhead
. The terrestrial terms are in quotes and italics
and the marine terms are in boldface
It is much easier to communicate if everyone is on the same page and using the proper terminology. If I'm calling something a wall, and everyone else is calling it a ceiling...someone is going to get pretty confused, like you did. Before jumping all over JohnRPollard, you might want to sit back and actually read what he wrote a couple times, until you understand it.... it was fairly well written, concise and quite clear.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
