Re: Unintentionally humourous vessel names

Saw a power boat up in the Whitsundays called Blond moment, it was written upside down.

There's also a sailing catamaran of the same name and it's written back to front like the reflection in a mirror.

Another trailer cat power boat up here is called "Screamin' Seamen" with the text surrounded by a number of tadpole like motifs.

I rebuilt the bow pulpit on a local powerboat due to collisions-twice. The boat was named Ramming Speed. All of the internal hardware was custom, with rams head faucets and the like. Ram's head motif everywhere. Couldn't stop laughing! The guy blamed his teenage son every time.

Re: Unintentionally humourous vessel names

Saw a boat in Vancouver, where getting out through fog into the clear is apparently sometimes a problem. Boat was called "Fog Ducker"

Re: Unintentionally humourous vessel names

Y'know, I make it a point to test out a boat name with an imaginary distress call... saw a boat once named "the Cat-Sass." Now lets just see how the distress call pans out.
"Mayday, Mayday, Mayday, this the Cat-Sass, we have struck a rock and are taking on water."
"Cats Ass Cats Ass, this is the Coast Guard. What is your position, and how many persons on board the vessel?"
See what I mean? I prefer to maintain my dignity when begging for emergency assistance...
