That picture was posted a while back with the word changed to voat, after Reddit did something stupid (I think Voat was down at the time and it was posted on /r/voat

That is it really.

There is a mobile app called boats for voat. It probably plays off this too.

And Voat auto corrects to boat on a cell phone which is why it was smart to name the app that way.

mostly because it sounds like voat. Same reason the mascot is a goat.

Its because Voat autocorects to boat.

No one else has noticed this? Maybe that says something about how this user base is more likely to access the site from a computer instead of a phone. I thought it was genius for the android app to be called boat.

Pretty sure this has to do with Upvotes occasionally being called Upboats because of the similar pronounciations. I've seen many a Upvote gif rehashed with upboat.

If you have to ask, you'll never understand. Just play along. Boat.

This is probably the most realistic answer.

Most of us don't know and will never understand, but we're just playing along hoping no one boats... ..I mean notices.
