in winter gales,after checking my lines,a good wander around boaty places can give a smile at some of the choices people have made..apart from the usual female names,often in the vain hope of persuading the lady to a,step on the thing,and,b,justify the long flood of outgoing dosh(you rarely see saucy ken,for example),you get the range from the crass(gin&it)to the macho(tuff stuff)and the original(wysiwyg)..old expats have moved on,but the names remain(sayonara,ashanti,and,probably,mandalay)..i like the guy who painted "this way up"upside down on the fin..personally,i wouldnt name my boat mayday..

An owner settled finally on the name for his very expensive brand new racing yacht immediately after it had been launched by the builders (who should remain nameless) and was seen to be floating about 3 inches below its marks. The name had a dual meaning - "OVERDRAFT"

I always think of the Mayday situation when thinking up a boat name.
I love the Winnie the Pooh stories but.....
Mayday Mayday Mayday
All rabbits friends and relations
All rabbits friends and relations
Allrab.......gurgle slurp.

And anyway - I thought there was an etiquette thing which frowned upon the cunning stunts and shy tots:
But lets not get into Flags and old Farts in Blazers

I'm still on for 'Crapone's Elf'. It actually took me a whole season to work out the true meaning! How naive can I get?

When I bought my Catamaran it was called 'Suzy Two' which was attrocious and obiously a crawl job to the previous owners trouble and strife.

Ignoring all superstition I have renamed it 'Double Standards' in honour of my EX-wife.....
