I never learned how to swim. Sure I took some swimming classes as a child, but that's it.
I can pretty much 'swim' in a pool, as in do the doggy paddle stroke or whatever it's called, but none of my techniques are actually proper.
It made me wonder if I'm in a minority of people who can't swim.

I don't know how to swim either. I think I'm probably even worse than you are: I know how to float but, that's about it. If I can't touch the floor, I'll have major problems. When I was little, my parents hardly took me to the pool, and I've only had swimming lessons one summer when I was little. I know conceptually how to swim but, can't apply it.
I also have a pretty strong fear of drowning since I've had a few incidents. It hasn't stopped me from going in boats or cruises though. 😬0
