Top Definition
Noun. From "Homeless showboat", an overly eager, attention seeking street individual with no discernible place of residence. Often known to play instruments/sing, juggle poorly, and engage in intentionally shocking acts for money and/or attention. While very popular in urban areas by visiting midwestern tourists, often vilified by locals and less ambitious members of the homeless community.
"Did you see that bum? He was trying to eat like, 14 bottlecaps? Fucking Hoboat."

A combination of the words "hobo" and "boat." A hoboat is a (usually) derelict watercraft, appropriated by one or more homeless person(s) for use as a domicile. They are typically not operational, or are barely operational, but still float. Among other locations, they can be found illegally anchored along the Willamette river, in Oregon.
We can't fish there anymore. The hoboats are dumping their sewage in the river, and the fish are sick.
