Large metal things that float on the really large watery thing.

Very expensive M.O.D. purchase much beloved by the Royal Navy.

At some point a boat becomes a ship but naval people are really tight lipped about when this happens. Obviously one of those things that seperates a landlubber from a bluff old sea dog.

-*cough* a boat is a submarine and a ship is a ship *cough*

Spotters Corner:

Anything other than a fishing vessel longer than 40 feet is a ship unless it is a submarine. Submarines and fishing vessels are all called boats no matter how big they are.

However, if you are on a fishing boat and a submarine surfaces right in front of you they are called, "Where the fcuk did that b*stard come from?" Hasn't happened much off the West of Scotland since the Antares tried to catch a nuclear sub of her own and went from full ahead to full astern and then (sadly) fully under in seconds - now HM Subs always (allegedly) get an escort vessel. Where TF did that B come from can also apply to basking sharks, yachts, tourists washed away on lilos, MOD Plod afloat, fast moving container ships and the skippers fist if you didn't notice any of the above before he managed to say, "Where the fcuk did that b*stard come from?"
