Carquinez Coot definitely not as simple as Bob I like the play on words names, or as CS posted, anything with babes in the name

Re: Help us name our boat

Packet pocket?

or if you like easy to spell phonetically on the VHF names, how about ZIP! or Xip ! (pronounced "ship") The x is because it's what you'll make of it, and that is unknown at this time.

Re: Help us name our boat

Another rule of thumb for naming your boat is that you shouldn't have to explain the name. It sounds like fun the first couple of times. But after you've explained the name 10,000 times it gets old. Or so I've heard...
