Make boats a container?

Is not the realism of don't drop things while over the water better than
things such as anvils floating around?

I think if we made boats into a container, then we could have anything
dropped go into them.  (Which means I'd go back to my original approach of
not in obj_to_room course.)  Then we'd have the non-losing aspect and the
realism too.
