Maritime mobile. But only when in international waters. On a lake, river, etc., that's inside a country, it's just plain mobile, same as in a car or truck.

Worked a guy yesterday on a houseboat in Utah signing /Maritime Mobile. Also have heard stations on the Mississippi incorrectly doing the same.

"Maritime" means having to do with the sea. 

To be more correct..  i means operating ON the High seas.  ie:  not in the national waters of ANY country.  Its in the regs. .. Fred

Back 'when it mattered', Maritime Mobile was identified as Region 1, 2, or 3.  As in "K7IWH/R2".... when underway in the Pacific.  I recall pulling into Kodiak once, while running phone patches, transitioning from 'Maritime Mobile Region Two", to "Mobile KL7", to "Portable KL7" when tied up.

It would be 'nice' if people operating in areas not reflected in their call, would sign 'Slant [X]', for CQ's or First Replies, to avoid swinging the Quad the wrong direction, but I've found very few OPs willing to do so. I was recently answered by a '2', swing the  Quad East to Two -Land, and lost the guy for a while, as he was in San Diego.
