Good starter boat, you don’t want to be messing around in something smaller, a complete waste of a Sexy Badass’s time to learn in less than 60ft.
My daughters middle names are Grace and May, so my boat's Gracie May...It seems incredible to me that so many people have such disrespect for their boats that they give them such risible names.
What gets into someone's head to spend all that money on something they presumably enjoy and then give it a name that just generates ridicule, especially if they ever have to use the VHF?
I saw a clever (if rather worrying) one recently in Greek waters, a hideous 30m pile of glitzy Russian flagged bad-taste bling named "Drughi Dom".
Now I know that means 'Second Home' in Russian, but the play on words is so blatant it surely cannot be a coincidence, and the couldn't-care-less in yer face nature of such a public advert is pretty shonky, imho.
But then, perhaps all it intended to say was 'Second Home' - though somehow I doubt it.
And why do so many boats have a name ending in 'May'? Daisy May, Sally May etc. I'm always tempted at add a 'Not' to those.
