In Michigan I saw a power boat named "Alcohaulin' Ass"
In the Apostle Islands last summer on the VHF I heard the Coast Guard dealing with a distress call from "Fishing Whiskey" (or "Fishing Whisky" if they're Scottish) — I wonder if they reply any differently to boats with alcohol-themed names?
GREETINGS EARTHLINGS Saw a badly preped. racing sailing dinghy with the wonderful name NORFOLK-AND-CHANCE but it is normal for it to do well in the round the cans. It would be fun to call it in to the C.G. AS ALWAYS GO SAFE
On a more serious note I have seen/heard a bunch of boats with names that drive the marinas and bridge tenders crazy. You might like manananjajajajkukuku (made up Hawaiian name) but i assure you the bridge tenders will not. Not to mention the Coast Guard of just about any country. There was a very famous ad years ago from the Berlitz language school.
