uh oh boat
 n.— «As professional mariners, yacht captains are fairly well versed in securing their vessels for a storm. Many would agree that it’s often the owner-operator vessel that is poorly secured, breaks away, and causes damage in storms. “We have a term for them,” one captain said. “They’re called uh-oh boats.”» —“Bridge Sept. 2006: Captains stay in hurricane zone for work, boss” by Lucy Chabot Reed Megayacht and Superyacht Industry News Aug. 25, 2006.
