    Quick question, I think I remember something about if a vessel turns to port or starboard it is defined as a boat or ship depending on whether it rolls into the turn or not, it was about 15 years ago and since that no-one has mentioned it so it may have been BS, any ideas?

    What about the RNLI Lifeboat? They all carry small boats...I have seen rowing boats carried on the roof of cabin cruisers..does that make them ships?
    I think my definition was more accurate.

    A ship carries boats, boats are carried on ships. So if your 'ship' cannot carry a boat then perhaps it's not a ship..... or something like that

    The safest term is "Vessel"

    Try calling the LE Ciara a boat in Haulbowline and see where that gets you.
