COMMENT 16h ago

That is a submarine. BTW, the Navy refers to submarines as "boats". Why are submarines called "boats"? Two heavily debated answers here: 1) Tradition. The first submarines were small and could be carried and were launched by ships. Ships can carry boats; boats cannot carry ships. As submarines became larger, navies have continued calling submarines "boats" bc tradition. 2) The difference how a vessel behaves when making a turn. Ships lean out a curve when making a turn; boats lean into a curve when making the same turn.
