Are these your own photos to which you have added keywords? In Library view, click on a single photo and look in the keywording panel to see what keywords are associated with the image.

In Library mode, in the right hand column look down the keyword list for *boats*.  Click on the arrow to the extreme right of entry.  Does it still return an unexpected result?

Steps to diagnose this:

 

1. In the Keyword List panel, type "boats" into the Filter Keywords box and make sure All is selected:

Untitled.png

 

Post a screenshot of the entire resulting Keyword List panel. If there are ancestor keywords containing the string "boats", this will show them.

 

2. In the Keyword List panel, right-click the keyword "Brands Hatch" and do Edit Keyword Tag.  Does "boats" occur anywhere within the Synonyms field, e.g.

Untitled2.png

 

Repeat for "BSB".

 

3. Do the menu command Metadata > Export Keywords.  Open the file in a text editor and search for "boats". If you don't find it, upload the file to Dropbox or similar and post the sharing link here.
