    Thanks for the remark!
    I have some friends from Madrid, and I feel the same when they says "barca", a river or lake craft, when refer to a "sea craft"
    Consulting my Collins: boat is synonymous of large ship, but dictionaries are one thing and sailor lexicon is another...
    Regards,
    Andrés.

    I agree with you, but since English is not Andres' first language, I am forgiving of the faux pas.
