{{Mergeto|Watercraft|date=November 2009}}

Can watercraft be merged with boat in order to simplify the articles (boat, boating, ship, watercraft) and provide a more clear article (with 1 meaning for each) ? Would allow to add more specific and better information for each rather than give a general view/modification of text for each individual article.

Also, boating can then be described as the activity of moving a watercraft over water (something which is hard if it were only to describe boats)

Definition should also be changed to A watercraft or boat is ... KVDP (talk) 09:31, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

"Watercraft" is a broader category of conveyances which enable passage across water, compared to "boat." Watercraft includes personal watercraft, which is the generic name for jet-skis and waverunners, as well as canoes and other gizmos such as this. A boat is a type of watercraft, but not all watercraft are boats. IMHO a merge of one into the other is not the best way to treat them here.  –Newportm (talkcontribs) 06:55, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

I have removed the text "Being more capacious than carts and wagons, and suitable for both land and grass". A boat is not necessarily more capacious than a cart or wagon and I have no idea what "suitable for both land and grass" means.MikeEagling (talk) 04:22, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
