One that I found ingenious was AFTICA - Another F.... Toy I Can't Afford

I chartered a Gemini with that name. Was that it?

I could not remember it and kept saying ATFICA, ACTIFA, AFTIFA etc. Made the wife LOL.

There was a Sea Witch Ketch called Sea Forth, what was good was it's dinghys name "Back n Forth"

Also here in the Carib we nickname boats. I ran a ketch named Drumbeat, but was nicknamed Deadbeat. My favorite one was Desert Wind, we nick named that one Camel Fart.

I always liked the name of the maxi racer "Sayonara".

Only works on a very fast boat ...

Thumbs up New Sailor, Friends Boat

Naut-A-Clew.

He has advanced very well over the past few years and is now team teaching.

HE has a new boat, I'll try and find her name.

Cheers

There was a small fishing boat that I used to see as a kid named Plastard Bastards. I always got a kick out of that.

A hot-rodded catamaran. Not purely blasted for maximum racing potential. Careful optimized, resculpted, painted, and tricked by one of the designers. Very "hot rod." A Deuce Coupe.

This probably doesn't really count but we named our new (to us) Ingrid 38 "Seven C's".
There are seven of us in our family (Mama, Papa and five kids) Our last name starts with "C".
That the best I could come up with.

My boat is named Zig Zag. Most think it is about tacking, but the previous owner owned a factory that sewed children's clothes.

Ps: I didn't change the name based on the old sailors belief that changing a boat's name is bad luck. And, although I am not a superstitous person, I have had 6 boats and have had problems with the two whose name I changed.

I think "Aliens ate my Buick" is rather interestingly sounding when hailing marina or other boats on VHF ...
