His was also humor
A pedantic (like me) would've rushed to post, "It's called the bow!!" Instead, he twisted it to focus on another word. (And, as you've pointed out, it is silly to correct that word since we don't know the size of the vessel being discussed. Thus the humor in the silly-ness of it.)
He got your joke, and added one of his own, which you missed. I wouldn't get too bent up over it. Not all the different flavors in the category of humor touch all palates. "Maybe next time."
My PCF WAS a boat - but my sarcasm went past you, eh?
As my old ex-Navy high school teacher would say, "Please call them ships."
I have used K&S square brass tubing epoxied to the base plate - or even to the underside of the main deck if you don't have a base plate. One can carry the tubing all the way to the pointy end of the boat by filing and thinning if necessary....Dibbles or HobbyTown.
Does anyone have any good ideas for materials to use to weigh down the fore and aft ends of 1/700 waterline kits to keep them from bowing, especially where the kit doesn't provide a metal plate? Such bowing is obvious on some kits such as the test shots of the Aoshima Dorsetshire.
