its so funny that the sailboats tend to have elegant/clever names and the stinkboaters come up with the macho names... shocker/ohio steel/etc... though i must say i found the 'pair-a-dice' to be clever.

Better have a wide Arse boat and good luck getting that through to the coast guard on your mayday call before the boat actually sinks.

There is a boat up in the NW USA that is named "On the Rocks". Can't you just see him putting out a mayday if he ran aground on some rocks.
