Questioning type questions

Most of the Coast Guard questions are fairly routine and make sense given the situation. ie: number of people on board, boat name, current position, does everyone got a lifejacket on, and any distress or concerns.

Every once in awhile though, they throw in a question that makes you stop, wrinkle your brow, and respond with the ever classy "Uh hang on a second I have to check."

At one point I had myself half convinced the next 'Inquiring minds want to know...' out of the blue question would be: "What colour underwear are you wearing?"

Don't worry, it wasn't.
