Here in the SF Bay Area our transit trains are called Bay Area Rapid Transit (B.A.R.T). I carved into the seat the name we gave our black Porta-Bote - Black BART. There's a couple pics of her in Bruce Bingham's "Living Aboard" book, which noted that the carved name might deter thieves.

I have seen a boat named HILDALGO, and its tender named PENZA , in reference to the great Cervantes masterpiece.

My Bro in law has a nice boat called "Home Frys"" (He has a house in "Frys Mangrove" in the Bahamas) I thought the dink should be "Tater Tot" but they want "Katsup" What do you all think?

CSY man has a valid point but while we do not need another OBGYN with "Sea Section" or a Lawyer with a gaudy "Sea Questered" it is entertaining and predictable.

I think "Tomato Paste" is already taken, so "Katsup" (or “Boot” or “Sherlock & Vernon”) might be appropriate.

Katsup works for me.

Our boat is Leisure Lady. Haven't thought of a name for the tender. Any idea's?? working Lady just doesn't sound right.
Well, considering one of the circumstances in which you might need it urgently....

t/t "Leisure Lady"
Connemara's "Leeshore Lady", suggests another derivative "Lesser Lady"; but I, somewhat perversely, like "Working Lady".

Well for the most part i haven't named my dink since its an old raggy Avon inflatable. Ive now got a nice little rowing dink and would like to find a good name for it. The boats name is Distant Star, a 1972 Pearson 36.

This is the new dink,

And the closest star to earth is...

And the closest star to earth is the "Sun".

Or, if you like puns, "Son".

Probably more apt if you change the name of the dink to Distant Star, then you could call the boat "Black Hole".
