RE: M/V vs. M/Y

Yep, you are right Don. We have a large concentration of commercial traffic that mixes in with the pleasure boats. They do refer to them as pleasure boats on the radio and I refer to myself as such.

*"Pleasure boat" insinuates sensual/animalistic activities.* I prefer a G-rated "recreational vessel" label.

*Mark, why would you prefer G-rated over sensual/animalistic activities?

*Because I have a private self and a public one.** When communicating with ships and the authorities, I want to be*recognized as a boat operator rather than a "dirty old man" messing around*in a*pleasure craft.*

RE: M/V vs. M/Y

Per my USCG Master's course -
M/V = over 20 meters in length, power driven vessel
M/B (motor boat) = under 20 meters in length
20 meters is a major "break point" for USCG reg's...
12 meters is as well, in regards to whistles/bell, etc

*Man, that's some heavily repressed Freudian stuff ...* especially when you consider nearly every maritime authority (meaning the folks who own the waters around their country) refer to recreational vessels as* "pleasure vessels" for rulemaking purposes.

*My Coot's USCG Certification of Documentation doesn't mention "pleasure" but the vessel has a "recreation" endorsement.* Hate to have the USCG cite me for pleasure when I'm only allowed recreation.*

California's boating accident report form begins "The operator of every recreational vessel is required ..." and it doesn't mention "pleasure" but does categorize activity among recreational, commercial, and other.

Perhaps the description "pleasure craft" has fallen from favor in the U.S. unlike Hong Kong, Canada and wherever else?

The best "yacht" definition I have heard ( and is my standard answer to non-boaters, who ask it all the time), is when the boat has solid interior doors instead of curtains. Seems to satisfy them!

It's to pretty Mark.**Do you actually plan on using it?

I would keep her undercover and only take her out on nice days.

Sort of like a 57 corvette.

RE: M/V vs. M/Y

hmm i had to update my sig..
guess the correct would be M/B but instead I just remove M/S...
perhaps instead should have used YMMV
