That may be a popular name for your guy friends in "SF" Fstbttms (interesting connection there) - but it's a sure way to get keel-hauled over on the right coast (g).

I don't consider myself old at 48 and I agree that it's your boat and you have every right to name it as you see fit.
On a personnel level, I am getting pretty tired at the level of crudeness demonstrated by a lot of people today. Everything for those car window stickers depicting a kid peeing on a Yankee's logo to some of the foulest t-shirts you could imagine. Boat name's included. I always thought that sailors had a higher level of class than those power boater's who named their fishing boat "Master Baiter". I for one, would not like my 12 year old daughter to think that naming a boat "The Filthy Whore" is acceptable in polite company.
Maybe I am an old curmudgeon after all.

...Filthy Whore is gettin' pooped, Filthy Whore is going down.

Certainly you can name a boat what ever you like - however if you get on the VHF and use certain names or phases the FCC can certainly follow up with fines and penalities - provided they even bother.

I agree with the less crude; I'd not want to talk about my boat to friends, co workers etc.. with a name like that. Funny once is still only funny once. The trick is to tell the name to a 10 year old. If it's funny twice it's probably crude.

Yeah - about 24 months of time wasting.

This from a guy who named his boat "Eclipse"! Talk about crude and classless!
