dingy names

We met a fine family with a sense of humor in Tonga one year. They were sailing a beautiful Switch 51 catamaran named "Willy Flippit". Their tender was called "Betty Won't"

Wife & I agreed on "Our Journey" for our new (to us) Mainship and we are thinking of "Little Trip" for the dingy...any suggestions?

I have a wooden trawler "Morning Wood", with two dinks. One hard fiberglass one that looks terrible we use to dive named "Deep Search", copied from the Life Aquatic sub. The second being "Scapegoat" a crappy Zodiac we found popped,washed up on a beach in Texas only assessable by boats that won't stay inflated for more than three days. Scapegoat gets inflated whenever I go somewhere sketchy and stays tied up to the swim platform.

Our boat is called Roaring Girl, and the tender is called Bridget. It's a long story. but any readers of the book "Moll Cutpurse'' will get the reference. We recently added an inflatable kayak to our fleet, and she's called the waka wahini.
