Great work. Why is Bloodhound (Camper & Nicholsons, 1936) not included? Nuttyrave (talk) 19:39, 23 July 2010 (UTC) Why is King George V's Britannia annotated with a star to indicate it was not a royal yacht?Nuttyrave (talk) 15:21, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

It was a Cutter. --Philip Stevens (talk) 16:45, 12 August 2010 (UTC)
As far I understand, the Britannia was a racing yacht, used solely for the King's good pleasure in 1920s.Nuttyrave (talk) 17:02, 12 August 2010 (UTC)
That's right, it wasn't a Royal Yacht like HMY Britannia. --Philip Stevens (talk) 17:40, 12 August 2010 (UTC)
Seriously, you have to explain what differentiates a yacht from a yacht in plain English. Do you intend to say that the royal yachts without a star were used for official state visits? This is an encyclopedia, you have to be specific!! Smiley.svg Nuttyrave (talk) 18:16, 12 August 2010 (UTC)
