What is a Navy?

A navy is not simply a collection of ships or fighting vessels. It is a process of activities ranging from securing those vessels, raising crews, provisions, arms, munitions, finding ways to resupply those vessels, finding ways to pay all those people, commissioning officers, establishing rules, codes of conduct, and deciding on a naval strategy.
