Comes down to being "a boat person" or a person with a boat.
I take a small amount of offense to that.
My neighbor, who leaves his boat outside, uncovered, all summer long, is a person with a boat. My two boats are always covered, always clean, and don't look anything like you would expect 20+ year-old boats to look. And, they haven't been molested by raccoons and rodents. (How does a raccoon get under an engine cover, anyway?)
Just because your boat doesn't live in a garage doesn't mean you're not a "boat person".
