Which of the following is not an anagram of a type of ship?
(In reply to re(2): Ahoy! (spoiler)
The basket boat can be referred simply by the term basket. The following excerpt is from an online article on the woven bamboo basket boats of Viet Nam, where the term basket (one word) is used for the boat:
"The baskets in the far north in Halong Bay, graceful oval baskets before they’re outfitted for work, carry a heavy rectangular wooden deck and quite a bit of wooden framing to support their engines and provide a little covered stowage. Even the smaller Halong Bay baskets have at least a pair of wood or bamboo gunnels added and stanchions to carry the oars."
Possibly a stretch, but the term basket is also used to describe the small boat in which the infant Moses is placed on the Nile. (Exodus 2:3)
