Back in early 1980's my friend crewed on a big Hatteras sport fishing rig out of Corpus Christi named "Pop a Top". The boat was owned by an Oil Company there. Times were good so Buddy Davis built them a new 65" custom. They named it...you guessed it..."Pop a Top Again"

Boat Names

When I purchased my, new to me, 86 Ericson 32-3, she was named "After You". I thought it may refer to racing. But the seller told me it was a great name to use at bars when talking to women. He said the line went, " What's your name?" followed by " I named my boat after you." Needless to say, my wife ask me to change the name.

Re: Odd Boat Names

My late uncle was an otolaryngologist with a boat on Lake Michigan: Q-tip

He always said that people sticking Q-tips in their ears paid for the boat.

Re: Odd Boat Names

"High Boativation" should definitely fall into that category of odd (yet sorta typical) boat names, though when spoken, may just sound like the speaker is a little congested....;-)

For those who don't know, that is a person or organization that looks after the logistics of moving freight between modes of transportation - from ships to trucks and so forth.

The background of the name meant nothing I could see in terms of a sailboat but it somehow reflected the personality of the boat very well.

Another name, on THE ugliest boat I ever saw - the closest description I can give is that it looked like a single catamaran hull, upside down. It was a humpbacked, hogged sheer, bright yellow freak named "Zog".
Hi I am just going through some old pictures of my boss and he has a picture in there with the name you have mentioned above and it does look like old fishing boat. could you let us more details of the boat or could you sent us a link with pictures to see if it is the same boat thanks

Re: Odd Boat Names

I had to rename my boat when I got her. She was named after the owner's standard poodle.. "black jack"

Trouble is.. I am home ported in Atlantic City

Sorry, no pics or other history other than it was moored at Devonian Park - the entrance to Stanley Park - for years. I saw it in Thunderbird years later for a couple of years then it disappeared.

It was painted red if that's any help.
