Being the constant Homeschool Mom, I felt the need to throw this out there:

Gunnel, gunwale. Pronounced "gun-nel." The rail around the edge of a boat.
Smaller versions are called toe rails.gybe.

It freaked me out the other day when Jack said gunwale but I had been bloggin gunnel. Now, I feel much better having settled this internal conflict. Btw, we don't have toe rails on our boat but many newer offshore boats have them. I thought they were a stupid feature until one day I was fishing on our boat and almost went overboard when my feet slipped out & backward from under me. Who knows, we may make them an additional feature at a later date.

High winds still prevail.
