No one in Diligence will take offense. It's just tradition to say it that way... Diligence isn't really a 'cutter' either in the traditional sense of a masted sailing vessel, but all Coast Guard vessels over 65' are called cutters anyway.
Technically, those in the know usually say, "underway."
Happy hunting, NMUD. Quartering seas and a safe return.
