    On a bus? A boat?

    Possessing a firearm in a car on a motorcycle or a bike is considered concealed... What about on a bus or a boat? is there any law to distinguish between these things?

    Without a CPL in a car and in a buss you are correct. Not always B&W on a bike/motorcycle and boat. Some argue that a bike/motorcycle and a boat are vehicles and therefore you need a CPL to carry a weapon on them. Some say as long as you OC it's not concealed. I guess it's best to be conservative and not test this argument.

    If you are to carry on a boat, be it CC or OC here in MI be VERY careful of those invisible international boarders along the Canadian side. The international border is NOT exactly in the middle of the waterway as you might think.If you are not familiar with these areas and have a good GPS on your boat you may be inadvertently crossing over the Canadian border while in possession of a firearm. This as we all know is not a good thing as the Canadians are not 2A friendly at all and in all likelyhood you'll be in a heap of trouble.

    Worse yet: be on lake MI and accidently cross into the waters of The Peoples Republic of ILLINOIS. If you were to be stopped by their naval forces you could spend a long time in one of their gulags like cook county.
