Googling reveals a 78m yacht called Morning Glory but that is much bigger than in the photo. Ted Heath's yachts were all famously called Morning Cloud. But why let inconvenient facts spoil a story?

A Freudian slip is one with sexual overtones. I suppose that Morning glory, being a flower, could be described as such, but it seems to be stretching the point somewhat.
