Ahoy mateys!

Just bought a 1974 Morgan out island 41. She's a beauty. Can't wait to take her around the world. Currently outfitting her for such a trip. Want to name her something ridiculous and funny. Im seriously thinking about "Who Farted?"

Comments, questions concerns?

Re: Ahoy mateys!

there are WAY better options that 'who farted' if you are going down the path of crazy.

just remember.. you are eventually gonna need to hail the coast guard...

and welcome. :P

Re: Ahoy mateys!

In some countries the officials don't have the sense of humour that you may have.

Related to your suggestion, but not to boats, the funniest horse name I ever heard was "Hoof Hearted" (say it out loud). Was hilarious hearing the commentator when that horse won the race.

Aloha and welcome aboard!
There's crazy, there's humorous, there's ridiculous and there is disgusting. When entering foreign ports or even conservative US Ports you won't get a friendly welcome with some names. Take some care in naming a vessel that you are going to to love.

Re: Ahoy mateys!

Welcome aboard!!! Be some what careful with the name. I know of someone in the 80's whose boat name was Going Down. They hailed the Coast Guard and got in trouble and was strongly urged to change the name after being inspected and fined on "other" infractions
