Have a friend who nearly named his boat "The Wind Between the Sheets."

My dinghy/liferaft is named "Sharkbait."

I've always liked the San Diego boat "Hot Ruddered Bum."

Every time I see "Dream Weaver, Dream Walker, Wind Walker or Wind Dancer (which is usually several times a week in the summer) I get a little bit nauseated.... "No you were NOT the first one to come up with that name!"

I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.

I don't know if anyone else mentioned this one but there's a ghastly orange and green cigarette boat locally called "Silicon and Steroids"
From what I saw of the owners it was an apt name...one of many boats that inspire the desire for a guided missile!
I had a dinghy called the "Leaky Bastard" and another called the "Effin Jay" (it was an FJ that required a lot of effin' work)

There's a large trawler here called Pierless. Have to chuckle every time I walk by, since it's anything but ... at the moment (up for sale).

True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.

There is an aluminium sport fishing boat around here called "Gill and Guts" which I think is a bit crook.

Why put that on you're own boat, let alone a sailboat??
