What classifies as a "Yacht"?
What classifies a particular sailboat as a "Yacht"? Context of the question is, DW was showing some of the nicer pics of our boat to her coworkers. They began to give her a hard time, saying that things a yacht, you must be making big bucks ect, ect. giving her a hard time. Yeah, right, its a 17 foot boat with a tiny cabin, hardly what I would call a yacht. But then just for grins, hat is a yacht? I saw a yacht club on a small lake and all they sailed was Lasers - kind of hard to consider those as yachts either. So what is the real definition?

Sailing a large boat on a small lake is very tacky.
