    “Knot” a cool pun: worst boat names ever

    No boundaries...or limits to names, save sense! Thing is, the name comes last...

    Seems double-entendre boat names are popular...if done with taste. Some never are terrible and some are keen...Nice pair is keen like Gnarly Bobber...amen!
  3. +1. Sailing has enough dingers; tennis needs none. Japan's Osaka is as charming a gal ever stepped court side...this class act of a lady did not need "the attitude" PC attempt to diminish her play. Rules are rules, which too many skirt or try to skirt.

    Hey, You're all correct. Horse is dead. Long live the horse.

    Ahhhh, magic to me Dragon and/or 6 Meter...sailing boats! You rode a 12 and do not miss it? My o My, if so! I loved going 10 knots, inches above water...no helmet needed...and feeling the power under me! Don't get me wrong, what I prefer may not fit "what the AC has become, which seems less sailing and more experimentals. Both have a place. That first race was about sailing, wasn't it. So?

    For some, that ship foundered. Not for me...give me creaking slow.

    +1. A singular even...does not define sailing anyway.

    Foilers are okay, but the reason for them seems more spectator than sail. There are some nice old 12s that could be revived, but then the even would exclude grandstands. Such a conundrum, flotsam or jetsam. Both venues, IMO, have their place but isn't sailing the point? Figure as in past, things will slide before they get better.

    Both demand high skill to sail well. Steering, may be more kin to vehicle racing...each is...different and appeals are often emotive and aesthetic...and practical.

    Never "went" for "fat" cept for fat boats. Never liked foils much...to complicated and spendy...never bought a ticket to ride...but did some serene on a 12,,,once...hard to not love a fat boat.
