I found my favourite right here on Sailnet: a container freighter called "Titan Uranus". It comes to mind every time I read a weatherfax with tightly bunched isobars!

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Sailboat names

Boat names are always fun. Wandering through a marina in northern Minnesota we came across a boat paying homage to the classic film Strange Brew by naming the boat Strange Crew.

The other name that caused me to laugh out loud was a small daysailor named Blow Me Away. Either by design or mistake the "Away" was mostly below the waterline while sailing leaving only Blow Me visable.

One of my favorites, is a large powerboat that was at my marina last year—"Empty Pockets". Which is what the owner said he had after his first fuel dock trip—$1500 in fuel. UGH.

Can't recall the name of the boat but she is a Farr, and all the crew wear shirts that read:

"She's good from a Farr, but Farr from good"

Always makes me crack up....

Probably more than a few of these around. A local racing dink named "Soggy Buns". Appropriate and cute!

I am contemplating “WEARAMEYE" or "HEAREYEAM" I could put one on the boat and one on the tender.

Simon-

Highly recommend you do not name the tender and the big boat alike. In a foreign anchorage, some one could notice that your tender was at the dinghy dock, and borrow it to loot your unoccupied boat. Unless someone knew you and your boat, not too many people would think much of a dinghy unloading stuff from a boat that it obviously belonged to.
