Can't help it....true story. My girlfriend and I were aboard a 110 footer at the Ft. Lauderdale show, and as we were walking off, I said "It's a beautiful boat." The Broker cleared his throat and said "It's a Yacht" Being the smartass that I am...I turned and replied "I'm sorry...is this a car? A ship? It floats, has two engines...it's a boat...and walked off. As far as I'm concerned there are two basic types of boats... a boat and a ship. Ships fall under the Cruise type, and the Destroyer, Aircraft Carrier, Oil Tankers, Container, etc. the rest are boats. I always get tickled about people being impressed by labels that really shouldn't exist. Ships are Commercial/ Military, and the rest are boats. I could be wrong...I've been wrong before. A 300 foot boat is still a boat. Period.
