Disgusting Boat Name

Recommended Posts

I just read a bit about C.C Hanley, 19th century designer and builder of cat boats. Apparently, he designed a racing cat named MUCILAGE. What? I thought about the glue, and then read that mucilage is a viscous secretion or bodily fluid. Is this the most disgusting name for a boat?

 

A Google image which should eliminate any doubt:

Hagfish!

 

hagfishday-hagfish.jpg'Mucilage' is a good name for a racehorse, however. "Aaaand just now lumbering into the home straight is the back of the field, it's Dogfood on the rail with Steakhouse half a length behind. Then Knackers, Knackers in tenth place, and four lengths behind it's Mucilage, gonna be the sledgehammer for Mucilage."

Still, I would take "Mucilage" over "Knotty Girl" or "Peggy Sue IV" or some of the other gold leaf inscriptions that you find on sterns of a lot of power boats.

There's a powerboat near my slip called "Force Play". I believe that most courts would consider boarding said vessel to constitute consent.

The tragedy is that no consent is needed regardless of name.. And not even US flagged. The United States has agreements with MANY countries to allow them to board their vessels, and.... in US waters.... no consent is needed..... Unless it is a warship... :)

I don't think he meant -that- kind of consent

It was truly ugly. But, then again, so were the Canucks uniforms. Hey, it was the 80s.

..it was good times. I was mid 20's , first child born,, if I wasn't taking family friends out on that 'picnic table on water',, I'd raise the 'no nukes is good nukes' banner jib up and go chase warships.

...there was a time when there was a column of ships coming through Lions gate,, I'd sail dead towards the bow of each ship until the patrols started for me,, then jump back into the fleet of salmon fishing civilians along the Cap river. ..fit right in!! :rolleyes:

Saw a nice double-ender yesterday called Sea Haggis.

Fish processing plant floor sweepings stuffed into a large fish stomach and then baked or boiled? Sounds wonderful!

A guy once named his 470 "The Heartbreak Of Psoriasis".

 

Then another guy, @ the Nats, showed up with his boat, named "Tegrin".

That boat deserves a better name.

 

Sea Haggis would work on a Bayliner Buccaneer though.

It depends on the recipe.

 

As long as they leave out the sheep's stomach, lungs, heart, and liver and the beef bung, I'm OK with it.

Of course some don't like my former race boat/race team name from my oceans 17...which is now my mothership vessels name..I was actually asked on a daily harbor radio forum by some uptight prudish mother to use my vessels initials instead of saying the vessels name??? I told a few in the community, they asked her to turn off her radio that time a day since people aboard her vessel seem bothered, put some headphones on those who are offended or just move your vessel outta radio range prolly the best answer to her personal problem...of course her vessel was named "Windsong" gag/puke/repeat!!!

 

Had an old salt neighbor named his vessel "Curmudgeon" which didn't fit, he was a cool old fart...I just started hearing the word again as Sean Hanity uses it to describe Bernie and how he won't quit till Hilary gets arrested or DNC names her the candidate hahaha

I was at the check-out counter at the hardware store with a boat related item. Check-out girl asks if I have a boat and what is it's name. I answer and she nods.

 

She then proceeds to tell how her husband pestered and pestered her for permission to buy a boat so that he and his buddy could go fishing. She eventually agreed on one condition - that she gets to name the boat:

 

"Two Dumb Rednecks"
