Mikey, looking at the picture below: let's say you're the Capt. of the USS Monitor during the battle of Hampton Roads:: . isn't your first order of business to plug "a few holes" in that flimsy-looking wooden lifeboat sticking out the starboard side like a sore thumb? . I mean in the midst of close-range firing between the two ironclads, that glorified dingy looks about as useless as a screen door on a submarine.
