I can't find my photo of a small German boat 'Shit Happens'

Other contenders were also German. 'Sailing Misery' and the puzzling 'Iritis'.

Some people have a strange sense of humour.
When I changed my boats name my criteria was that it would be easy to understand and not need to spell it when I call the CG, so I chose the name based on the fact that the boat is a Countess - Lady and the livery is in Red.

The famous ship "Titan Uranus" ISTR was a photoshop fake but there is a Wana Bhum registered in Bangkok. (y)
Even though the well known picture was a bit dodgy, it seems that there were two ships called Titan Uranus. See Titan Uranus Hoax – Solved – Maritime Accident Casebook The first one is still on Marine Traffic, position unknown, despite having been scrapped sixteen years ago. https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/details/ships/shipid:922319/mmsi:-7614252/imo:7614252/vessel:TITAN_URANUS
