He's on the .....

Recommended Posts

I've been thinking about the name of my next boat. I'd like it to be something which would have a double meaning when someone asks were I am, the answer would be: "he's on the...." or "he's on"

Here are some of the names I've been thinking about..

-Run
-Fire
-Spectrum
-Leave
-Acid
-Edge
-Rail

 

Any other suggestions. Shorter better for radio communications.

Cronkite's boat was "On Assignment".  Good choice and a good spirit to guide you.

Don't do it. The double meanings are cutesy and annoying.

Sold a boat to a college prof..He named it Library.

When someone called his office his secretary would tell the caller he was at the Library.

That worked before cell phones

Think about how a marina or the coasties would react. My T22 was named Anemone. Sounds like an enemy to me. Now named Grolsch.

side note. Local SC27 is named Off Constantly. Because who is going to stand up in the yacht club and brag about beating that boat?

I tend to hate cutesy names as well, though I do refer to our tender as "The Knight", but to play along:

A little bit later, the new girl in town comes to calls for the first time. Her name just happens to be Blueberry Hill.
