May we suppose it's a hard dink, as opposed to an inflatable?

And the prize for the most tasteless names ever must go to Prince Jefri of Brunei for calling the tenders to his motor yacht Tits, Nipple 1 and Nipple 2.

I recently named my trawler "Gumbo" so I guess my dinghy should be "Rice"

Had a commercial set-net skiff named Mamas Nipple. I won't tell what the other 2 were named. It had something to do with performance. My partner in the fishing venture got to name the skiffs and his mother was, well, how should I put this, welllll endowed.

my dinghy...Half Fast

Our motorless dinghy was aptly named "oar else". It seemed to draw a weak smile from folks who saw it.

Our Dinghy is named "M32" which, if you are an astronomer you know is the companion galaxy to "M31" also named "Andromeda" which is the name of our sailboat. So far only one amateur astronomer caught the connection.

Little Dink is named "Lil' Dink"


Anything that associates your dink to your boat although cute and maybe lawful, lets people know who is on or off their boat.

I.E. walk down the dinghy dock and see who is where. Fine for nice safe places, not so flash for Panama LOLOL
