*1: In calculation for Boat Rod, it is not assumed that the
rod is in casting. When calculating the moment values, both of gravity (vertical)
and acceleration (any direction) are taken into account as the causes of rod moment for
fly rod and lure rod since these rods are used holding vertically. In boat rod case,
only one (vertical) direction of acceleration (usually =1G) is taken into account as the
cause of moment, which is usually 1 as a static rod.
