I did a few searches, and I don't see a thread for non-sailboat, non-sailing ship, powered boats/ships. There is one for speedboats, but that is a niche group. Now, I am still a little fuzzy as to what is a SHIP and what is a BOAT, but this is what Wikipedia has to say:


Since the end of the age of sail a ship has been any large buoyant marine vessel. Ships are generally distinguished from boats based on size and cargo or passenger capacity. Ships are used on lakes, seas, and rivers for a variety of activities, such as the transport of people or goods, fishing, entertainment, public safety, and warfare. Historically, a "ship" was a vessel with sails rigged in a specific manner.

Ships and boats have developed alongside mankind. In armed conflict and in daily life they have become an integral part of modern commercial and military systems. Fishing boats are used by millions of fishermen throughout the world. Military forces operate vessels for combat and to transport and support forces ashore. Commercial vessels, nearly 35,000 in number, carried 7.4 billion tons of cargo in 2007.
More info can be found HERE: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ship

I have already had to edit this post a few times, as an ocean liner is a powered, non-sail ship... boat... liner...

This stamp started me on this whole thing:



Are we confused yet???

How about this one Nells?
There are two boats, and the guy on the left is definitely tugging!

in the previous picture the guys did not pull a boat, and the network. One of them caught a fish spear. This is not a tug, it is the fishermen.
But it is really a very rare subject in the construction of bridges, and generally unique to the postage stamp: transportation of the bridge to the installation of the water.



Tugboats pull the floating platform with a bridge and put it between the legs of the bridge, and then slowly flooded the platform and bridge span is in the position. I have personally observed such an event in Moscow, it was a great show!

What about U-boats?
Or do shiips have to sail 'on top' of the water?

Hey Nells, hows about this one? Listed as 'stern of early canal boat'.
I don't see a sail, so perhaps it qualifies?

ZEE, I'm glad I make you smile!! James, I know some canal boats were once drawn by horses on the shore. Again, they may have run on gas, too!

U-boat = Unterseeboot (German) = under sea boat (English) = submarine

AHA! I KNEW I read that somewhere! But c'mon folks, I really did mean powered vessels... powered by fuel, not hay or oats!

ASIDE: thanks to this thread's content, I am looking at an ad for "Flir gyro stabilization" for boats!
