If flying a pirate flag is lame, can you imagine how feeble it is to have a pirate name for your boat

"Escape Velocity" is such a great phrase, term, etc... that it is a great name where every you call home.

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.

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".

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....;-)

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.

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.
