A ship can carry a boat - a boat cannot carry a ship ;)

Yes, subs are always boats. I always took it in the Navy that a boat is a vessel that could be carried on a ship. However, these days some ships are so large that other ships could easily be carried on them.
One definition I found states that: "A boat is a small to mid-sized vessel, which has much lesser cargo carrying capability as compared to a ship. Ships are specifically made to carry cargo or passengers or boats."

Tug boat, ferry boat, banana boat, rowing boat, ...
... a vessel then is generic for anything that floats.
I like the definition ‘...a boat can go on a ship, but ...’

Took this pic from my hotel room in Vancouver early last year, she had just sailed over from Japan.
It does not take me long to do five minutes work.
