I did fairly well considering I have one of the smaller boats on the forum...

You kind of know what boats are.
It’s hard for you to describe boats in words, but you get the basic gist of them. You’re confident you could fake your way through a conversation about boats, and if you were ever to encounter boats in real life, you’d probably be able to say, “Yep, that’s boats.” Brush up on the basics and you’ll be a boat expert in no time!

Well, I passed. The wording was tricky though.

You definitely know what boats are.
When you see a watercraft floating atop a lake or ocean, you know right away that you’re looking at a boat. You know exactly what boats are used for, and you have no problem distinguishing boats from other waterborne objects. Way to go! You've got all the boat knowledge you need to stay afloat.

I passed and got the same response as Janice.

Yes, it was dumb. Yes, I guess I did learn something over the many years I've boated.

I thought I knew what needed to be known until I got on a boat with two pointy ends.
