What we want to tag and why
There is a growing community of boat sharing in Switzerland (and probably also elsewhere), there are two nation wide operators with a total of more than 100 sailboats in about 50 marinas. If you're member with either of the operators, you can use all boats. This is different from amenity=boat_rental, since there are (currently) no nation-wide rental services, you do not have to be a member for rental, and the boats do not "belong" to you. On the other hand, being member of a boat sharing operator, you "own" your boats. But I agree, there are some similarities between boat sharing and boat renting.
The idea is to show where the boat you rent is exactly located, and help to reserve also the nearest boat to you.

In analogy to car_sharing, boat_sharing could be rendered as follows:
