Re: Dinghy Name?

After babbling about the "t/t" issue, I should admit that our alloy hulled RIB does have a name.

A few years ago it was stolen off the boat while on the Derwent River in Hobart. The mongrels motored the nearly new 5000$ dinghy up the river, removed the 12 year old Suzuki 15 (worth maybe 250$) and emptied the fuel tank into the hull, then set it alight. Eventually we recovered the tattered ashes that were still attached to the somewhat scorched hull. Harsh language was used. We returned the hull, laboriously cleaned up, to the manufacturers who installed new tubes, etc, for about half the cost of a new dink. It had risen from its own ashes, so of course...

Phoenix!

Cheers,

Re: Dinghy Name?

It was a "boat project" weekend and finally got our new(ish) dinghy christened, with due homage to the dear Captain, of course!

Re: Dinghy Name?

The t/t business means the dink is covered by the mother ship's insurance. To avoid advertising that the boat is unoccupied, it is written on the underside of the dink. Fortunately we don't have all that separate registration malarky with those daft number plates.

A couple of good dinghy names I've seen are Micro Wave Tender to Shock Wave. As seen on a rather battered 9' pram - Her Majesty.

Re: Dinghy Name?

We literally found our first dinghy, and it's pretty beat up, so it's the "Dingy Dinghy."

The next one came with the new-to-us boat, and it being a little monohull, to us it's really unstable, so it got called "Nervine." (Cajun expression for 'nervous' and is pronounced 'ner-veen')

The new dinghy is a Takacat, and it is super responsive on the steering and until we got used to that we waggled around a bit so it's called "Saoularde" which is a Cajun expression for 'drunkard.'

Mississippi requires registration for motorized boats.

We haven't named ours yet, but there is one around these parts named "Row vs. Wade".

Re: Dinghy Name?

My boat is named "HIGH COTTON". I have a smaller boat that I named "low cotton". When I bought a dinghy, it seemed logical to name it "Q-Tip".

The tender to our Endeavour 42 is named Elvis. Anyone care to guess the connection?

Re: Dinghy Name?

The big boat is named Argyle, the dink is named Wallace, and they shall rule the waves as uncle and nephew.

To extend the theme to another movie, the dink is a Spindrift 10N nesting dinghy, so the aft end, which is displayed when the boat is assembled, is named Wallace, the forward half, of course, is named Gromit.

Re: Dinghy Name?

I bought mine used, it was already named "Sandy Toes". I couldn't think of a better one, so I left it on.

Re: Dinghy Name?

I saw one named, I'm a Little Dinghy. So when someone asks what your boat is named, you reply, "I'm a Little Dinghy."

Well yea, but not even close to the connection between my Endeavour 42 & Elvis.
