A little off topic, but amusing story relating to the title of this thread. I was visiting an elderly aunt a few weeks ago, when my cousin dropped by to see his mother. I had been telling her about boating on the Chesapeake. After he sat down with us, my aunt told me "Bob has a boat too". His reply was "I have a yacht." He always was a little pretentious. The thread title made me remember this conversation. I noticed that all of the posters here refer to their "boats and boating".
