Re: Pictures of Boats with Weird Names

No picture but, a friend had a 47' ketch in Tacoma, Wa. It was called MUTOA, sounds like a name of a boat in the south seas, NOPE, it meant Mortaged Up To Our Arse....fittingly called since it was financed..

Oh damn it, there was a yacht in my marina with a great name that i never got a shot of, it was called "Krappa". it was a MacGreggor 26, an looked an appropriate name. I also passed it every time i went to use the facilities, very inspirational

Re: Pictures of Boats with Weird Names

Are MacGreggors the "Ford" of sailboats?

Re: Pictures of Boats with Weird Names

I guess it depends, if you pay a lot for one, yes they not worth a whole lot, I bought one for cheap, learned a lot about sailing on it, sold it now looking for a bigger boat.
