@OmSigDAVID,
Most people think of a punt as a boat.

However in football a punt is a kick made when the punter drops the ball and kicks it while it falls toward his foot. It's a good fourth quarter ploy designed to drive the other team back as far as possible before they take possession of the ball.

Thank u, Sglass.
How is that related to doubting,
or to boating ?
