    A combination. Basically a craft using a tool and mathematics as a tool.
    Given an adequate tool the better the craftsman the better the results.
    
    Practicing the craft on a craft at sea becomes an art form as the
    practitioner becomes a creative amalgamation of ballet dancer, acrobat
    and contortionist.
