It was thick of fog off the shores of Chester.
Uncle Ned was tasked with taking his nephew, Gus, out for a sail to "show him the ropes."
As they picked their way gingerly through the fog, Gus was dispatched to the bow as a lookout while his uncle manned the helm.
Ned yelled forward "What do you see?"
Gus shouted back   "I see a seagull."
Uncle replied measuredly, "Gus, is that gull swimming or standing?"
