Offshore = Can't see land in at least two directions. Waves (not WAKES) can get big enough to keep even the most die hard offshore enthusiest ONSHORE. So I guess The Great Lakes and the Oceans qualify.

Offshore boat to me means any boat you are crazy enough to stuff mass amounts of hp into and take into above mentioned waters.

I'm kinda with Foul on this one. If there isn't a point anywhere on the body of water where you can't see land, then it's not offshore. This way I give you Great Lake dudes your props!

No argument here, if it can sink giant freighters, it qualifies!
