Mark 8:1-10, Luke 5:1-11, Luke 8:22-25

Jesus was familiar with boats.  After one instance of feeding thousands, He went with his disciples in a boat to Dalmanutha.

He taught from a boat.  He then stayed in the boat to perform a miracle of many netted fish that caused some sinking.  Since there were so many fish, I wonder if some of them were squished by the fish?  If they were, I guess that would have been a happy problem since there had been no fish before.

Another time, Jesus and His disciples were sailing, and He slept on the boat during a storm.   The storm caused the boat to take on water.  The disturbed disciples woke Jesus up and He stopped the storm.  With things calm again, maybe He went back to sleep.
