Got a new tender - need some naming help

So we did some horse trading and are now the owners of a new-to-us skiff.

The primary use of this will be as safety-coaching boat for our kids as we chase them around on their Laser, Opti and their team 420's.



Secondarily we'll use it as a tender on our big boat...

Looking for a really cool name with a nautical and fun twist...

Thanks

What's the big boat name? You could try to relate the two names.

Friends' big boat is named Latitude, their small zodiac is called Latitube

Re: Got a new tender - need some naming help

Call it "Bob", 'cause it'll do a lot of that, and it's really quick to say or spell phonetically.

Okay then ... Bubbler ...

Not nautical but goes well with the ditch rider (job/function).
