How to add Royal Navy vessels?

HMS Titania is now in the Royal Navy Ships category.  Thanks for all your help.  My next question is this: The Royal Navy has various classes of vessel (incl. ships and boats), with designations such as HMS, HMY, RFA (Royal Fleet Auxiliary), RMAS (Royal Maritime Auxiliary Service), HMT (His/Her Majesty's Trawler), HMTB (His/Her Majesty's Torpedo Boat). They can't all go into the Royal Navy Ships category.  Some people will object if boats are put in the ship category.  Where should they go in the categories?

People in the Navy (Royal Navy and Merchant Navy) do not consider boats to be ships.  I have created a category of Royal Navy Boats, to accommodate torpedo boats and other vessels that are 'not ships'.  If anyone dislikes it, let me know how you would like to deal with it.
