- Interesting. I did not know that. Thank you for todays TIL for me 🙂
- Also the difference between a boat and a ship is that a ship rolls away from the direction of the turn and a boat rolls into the turn. That is what subs are called a boat as they roll into a turn like a ski boat does. The carrier pictures is actually turning to starboard. You can see the wake trail on the other side of it.
- I wish they'd make a good video game for this stuff
- Gato was so much fun, not that it was extremely realistic, but it was facking immersive on the Apple IIe.
- Freak'n Gato..you just refired some long dormant brain cells. Now I'm going to have nightmares of magenta water filling up my screen.
- My name is El Gato, I have metal joints...

- Out of curiosity, where did you get this definition? Ive been working in the tallship and commercial boating industries since I was 15. As far I have always been told and seen there is no "definition". Every industry (shipping, tallships, yachters, navy) seem to have their own. For example the "definition" that I was always taught it a ship must be able to carry a boat on it. Your definition does not stand up for tallships as well, as the wind/sea state plays a large factor on which way the ship will roll, not the direction of turn. Not that I really care, I just don't like you using it as an "absolute" definition when in reality it isnt and neither is mine.
- Most consistent definition I've heard is a ship is sea worthy, or is intended to cross an ocean without assistance.
- And yet submarines are able to circumnavigate the globe, underwater, perfectly well.
- the difference between a boat and a ship is that a ship rolls away from the direction of the turn I was on my high school and college crew team, and whenever we turned, the boat rolled outward. Are you telling me those were actually ships?
- We need answers here.
- I think ship vs. boat is kinda like porn vs. art. Sometimes here's no technical difference, but you know it when you see it.
- You're right, there is no standard distinction between the two. It used to be that a ship had three or more square rigged masts, but the end of the age of sail made things a little less cut and dried. Locally popular answers usually are "A ship is big enough to carry a boat" or "multiple decks are a ship, one is a boat", but there are so many exceptions to pretty much every rule of thumb that they are all pretty much meaningless.
