I put "That boat is dangerous" and it was marked wrong. Nave can't translate to boat?

Nave is ship. Barca is boat. They have different meanings the same way as in English

Weird. I think there are other places where Duolingo translates nave as boat. Apparently the website is inconsistent.

If it has lifeboats, it's a ship, otherwise it's a boat. They're different things but you usually don't make this distinction in normal conversation.

They want this translated as THIS ship. This is wrong.

Quella = that NOT this

Ok then what is the difference between a BOAT and SHIP?

March 27, 2017

A ship can carry a boat. A boat cannot carry a ship

The word tap exercise is bugged. It just sent the words randomly arround the gaps without following a logic order

I put 'That ship is unsafe.' DLG marks it 'wrong' I don't quite understand the logic of this question.
