Title text: For the moment it's a standoff
The comic roughly parodies a situation in which two characters are seeing who can wait longer to get the result they want. However in the comic, the model sailing ship is not alive and doesn't experience time (except perhaps if it absorbs water and falls apart). The comic compares the patience of a boy with that of an inanimate object. Also, it could imply that the boy has too much time on his hands.
