Pictures of Boats with Weird Names

We all know boaters of all kinds can be pretty inventive with naming their boats.

Some reflect the owner's personality, aspirations or work.

Some are just plain weird.

Here are two to start off this thread

Re: Pictures of Boats with Weird Names

Unfortunately don't have pics, but 2 stuck in my mind...

"Sailbad the Sinner"

and

"Secret Mens' Business"


There is a bit of a story to the last one.
There was a court case being fought here in Aus over a bridge building application. The local Aboriginal women opposed the application on the grounds that the land had great sacred significance. When asked for an explanation their reply was that is was 'secret womens' business', and they would say no more. The judge eventually ruled that the bridge could be built because he must have decided it was just obstructionist and not really a sacred site.
