    in / on a boat

    Can you help me?

    Is there any difference between "in a boat" and "on a boat"?

    Thank you

    Re: in / on a boat

    It depends on the size of a boat.

    In a row boat, a canoe, a kayak, a speed boat.
    On a yacht, a cruise ship, a naval vessel.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
