Bonus points for anyone that can name that carrier...

Free potato if you can name all the US navies carriers and a free Strawberry if you can name all carriers, globally.

    Not really, but I do know in naval nomenclature around the world that a submarine is often referred to as a "boat."

    You're the closest to correct so far. The difference between a ship and a boat in naval terms is that all ships float on the surface of the water, while all boats are submarines.

    Don't know the names of the carriers................but, I'm the daughter of a ship pilot who brought tankers up the Houston Ship Channel - you bet I know the difference.

    Can't tell for sure, but I'm going to guess the USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76)

    Close, but no potato.
    It's the USS Enterprise (CVN-65)

    A boat will go on a ship, but a ship won't go on a boat.

    A boat is small enough to be put ON a ship. Wish I could see the pic.

    Ships are generally for sailing deep waters and boats are for more shallow waters. Ships are also larger than boats - ships have to be large enough to carry boats and boats have to be small enough to be carried by ships. Ships float on the surface of the water, while boats do not.

    I would not be able to name the carrier nor carriers without cheating, so I won't even try. :)
