The one I seem to remember the most is "The Other Woman". It fits for a lot of the men out there! And I''m sure their wifes can relate...........

My sea scout skipper had a 26 foot motor sailor named "Bicarb" and the tender was "Burp". Of course as a professional schoolteacher, his 55-foot schooner was aptly named "Truant". It''s tender was "Chaser". A friend of mine was going to name his boat "Flashy Metaphor".

Walking by a marina, I saw a boat with the ON SALE name written in the sailcover.

One other one I noticed in Venice - the yacht was named ''Suntan'', and of course, the tender (and/or liferaft) was aptly named, ''Sunburn''

deadbeard:

What an imaginative name, it really speaks to the depth of your being; you and the boat should be a real chick magnet.

You are a kick! I don''t know you but after reading some of your quips on the board I know that I would enjoy knowing you if we ever happen to meet.
There used to be a race boat on Lake Michigan, you may be familiar with her.
I think the name was spelled "FUJIMO" .
As I heard it the guy had gone through a messy divorice and his ex-wife was named Jane. I won''t put the first word on here but the rest of it was " U JANE I''M MOVIN ON"
