Just curious because the most common boat names seem to have something to do with sex, like "Water Bed" or "Wet Dreams." So, why not just name the boat "Intercourse" because that's what you are referring to?
Again, it's not criticism. I just want to know.
Boatpoker has a pretty tricky name with Sir Osis of the River.
At Las Palmas, Grand Canaria I saw a 50' cat named Pussy Cat .... all girl crew of course.
Many years ago there was a young lady with a Amie McDonald type accent sailing around the Solent and every few minutes you could hear her on the VHF making announcements from her boat, this is Seacocks, Seacocks over!
We haven't re-named our boat yet, the old one was a bit to new-age and we didn't want to risk alien abduction and all the probing and such.
How about Dementia or Melanoma. My doctor likes the second one.
hello; my first sail boat was a 7m. luger which i named BLOW ME. it was always great fun to dead pan to the politically correct that the reference was simply a request to mother nature for fair winds and nothing more......incidently i had a dock mate who named his sail boat THE PASSING WIND. we had a lot of fun hailing each other on the vhf
Personally, I don't like 'sentences', like "Me and My two Buoys". My rule of thumb is "You gotta call that name on the radio". I don't want a name that makes me look like a @#$#%$. I certainly don't want one that nobody can repeat back, or understand.
If you get a lot of "This is the 'xyz' to 'the vessel that just hailed me", that's a hint the name was poorly chosen.
I am concerned that naming a boat "Blow Me" would assure someday you are caught up in a hurricane. Been thru enough high-wind situations not to want to temp the Gods.
Another local guy with a trimaran and tramps on both sides named his boat "Wet Spot", apparently reflecting the amount of spray and waves the boat took on while sailing. I am sure the ladies were impressed - NOT!
