Man ! You can't even get the explanation right!
BOXER refers to the engine configuration. BOXER engines are horizontally opposed..... a in-line engine is NOT a boxer, watercooled or other wise!

Last night I called all watercooled VWs waterboxers. Dan says that only Vanagons are waterboxers, boxes with water-cooled engines.
I say that all water-cooled VWs are waterboxers, meaning, I guess that their engines are boxes with water. And if that is not the case, I hearby make it so. From now on all water-cooled VWS will be called waterboxers.
The beauty of the English language is it's ability to change and absorb new traditions.
