Swamp Boat?[edit source]

Does anyone know why it's called a Boaty? Is this a stealth reference to the famous streamer? 2603:9008:FF00:14:A991:EEF1:1A1D:6F11 16:41, 7 March 2021 (UTC)

My guess is that it's the "swamp" version of Boaty which has an examine text that references Boaty McBoatface. However, I suppose there could be some alternative reference that just isn't acknowledged directly. :P -Legaia2Pla · ʟ · 16:46, 7 March 2021 (UTC)
I would guess both are references to Boaty McBoatface, with the one near Molch maybe doubling as a nod to B0aty. Unless it was renamed at one point, this one surely isn't as it was released in 2005 when he was still a wee lad. --laagone talk 16:50, 7 March 2021 (UTC)
Honestly my guess is that the swamp boaty is not a reference to anything at all. Boaty McBoatface is a fairly recent meme, and B0aty was not at all well-known in 2005. My guess is that this name is plain and simple just Jagex giving it a name they find fitting. It being just a little boat (-> boaty) makes a lot of sense to me.
