Forgive me if this has been done before,but what is the funniest or most unusual boat name you''ve seen ? My offering is a Grey colored inboard/outboard named I-O Silver.I figger this topic is a little strange,but it''s still too cold up here yet to work on my boat. Ahhhhh Spring ! Wherefore art thou????

When I was in Annapolis years ago,we kept hearing calls over the VHF for a boat named "Swallow Between the Sheets." Maybe they had a pet bird on board. ha!ha!ha!

There''s a small yellow dinghy tied to a mooring here in Sarasota with the name "Row vs. Wade" painted in large letters down the side. I get a kick out of it every time I see it.
