He took the analogy further:
You build the kind of boat you need to perform certain types of tasks.
You set out to sail to a specific destination.
You need to resource your ship to sustain the journey.
You have different parts of the ship performing different functions - stern, mid-ship and bow.
You have a crew.
- You have an engine room and a bridge.
