Fun Boat Names

Post by BruceDow » Fri May 07, 2010 1:08 pm

Hi Gang. I was just on a business trip, where I passed a harbour, and saw a boat called "Berth Control".

I know we have talked about fun boat names before, but I couldn't find the topic. So I'll start it all over again.

What else have ya got?

My boat name is Sean-nós meaning "old style" like the boat, and also after my dad Sean.

A good one for boat builders "NEVER AGAIN 7"

Actually a direct reversal and one that I used was "Knot Again" for a skiff that I built after one of my sailboats that was built using reclaimed wood from a local dumpster at a lumberyard " Waste Knots".

My favorite one from the Glen-L builders gallery is Knotalotayot. I think its on a Squirt.

I saw a restored Chris Craft this winter at the Indy boat show "Ju$t one more"

On a classy 40' cabin cruiser in Annapolis was "Didnt Get Caught"

One of my sailboats was named Coquina,which translates to "little shell".....or so I thought!

I guess it's really coral rock!!!

When I was 90 miles offshore it felt like a little shell,good thing it didn't go down like a rock!! :wink: 8)

I also had a flat bottom SK boat that looked like the Rebel.

It rode so rough and pounded, that we named it Bam Bam after the kid on The Flintstones that kept banging the club on the ground.

We were going to get a sign painter to paint the kid holding the boat instead of the club on the rear quarter,but never did that.

I saw a really good looking fishing charter boat named 'Reel Job'

From a Lake Michigan marina, an orthopedic doctor's boat "Bonapart" and my pontoon named for my wife "Merry Lou".

"Some Assembly Required"
A boat is just a wooden box with no right angles.

Yes, Plywood is "real" wood :)

A "professional" is someone who gets paid for their work - it doesn't necessarily mean they are good at it :)

We got a chuckle out of a cruiser on the ICW called "Cecil's Money". There was a woman at the helm :lol:

I saw a 42' Sea Ray with the name "Medicine Man" I guess he was either a pharmacist or a doctor.

For anyone in the construction industry, there is the classic:

Big Yacht and the tender with the following titles:

Tender Name: "Contract"
Yacht Name: "Change Order"

Pretty funny to me at least.
