That's a shame it's fallen into disrepair. I haven't seen the boat in some 30 years. Had raced against him multiple times and imagined it was named after some Roman god or general or something cool. Imagine my surprise when drifting along near him one race and I asked what it meant.

it meant you were sailing next to a boat that had sch a horrible blister problem the hull actually leaked right through the damned laminate and his trusty boat repair guy said...I really can't fix it this time..


so he bought a Catalina 30 for cruising and a Sunfish for racing.



and it seems to me he really enjoys each toy....and his bike that he peddals around our little hilly peninsula

For a sailboat - "Blow Me"

Don't ask the inspiration, though it had something to do with the predictable, spousal reaction to someone buying a boat.






The name didn't stick long enough to do the lettering.

A few months back my brother and I were driving towards the river when we saw a mast where it shouldn't be and at an the angle of closed hauled in 20 knots. We walked over to back side of Marriage Point in Gilchrist Park, we saw a 25 foot US Yachts on the rocks with a hole in her side. A Marine Patrol officer was there making out his report. As I walked around to the stern I saw the name and then announced "Hey, its name is Shoal Queen". The officer dropped his clip board laughing so hard.

Question: It is bad luck to rename a boat - so I have never renamed a boat I have acquired already named. My current vessel has one of those typical play on words names that would piss off whatever King Neptune you chose to believe in. Her previous two names were more benign and acceptable. Would re-christening invoke the same wrath??? I don't really like the earlier two names much either, but the one UV etched in the gel-coat isn't the worst in the world.

Whole string of boats by that name, owned by Jerry Schostak.

For my part, the first few big-boats I raced on as a kid were named "Concubine", "Mistress", "Seduction" and "Knockers". Had my mom wondering whether yacht-racing was really a sport she wanted her kid involved in (oh, if only she knew! O_O )

You're not supposed to rename a boat, paint it green, sail with women on board, or depart on a Friday.

Won a regatta which started on a Friday in a green boat which I had renamed and with a click on board.

We didn't have any bananas though.

Do it!

BTW the chick indirectly went on to cause me much more hassle than the boat did, but that's another story.

Just a clarification::



I started this thread to bitch about boat names that have dredged up memories of really bad yet catchy tunes that subsequent to seeing those names left me with a totally obnoxious leftover.



Boat names actually do tell us things about the owners of those boats.



I have no problem with those who wish to place a sign on the side of a boat which warns me of that craft's association with someone with whom I would likely prefer not to associate.


My own boat does not leave you singing a hard to forget awful tune but it does probably tell people I am somewhat of an asshole who happens to be old and thinks he can still race.>>

there was a huge motor yacht in Newport on Wednesday that had a terrible name, sadly I don't remember it. If I had that kind of coin I wouldn't put a cheesy name on my boat but I guess some people like to rub it in. Also the smiley face on the side of Ranger pisses me off too.....

Not worried about that, I already divorced the first wife, who was not worthy of having a boat named after her.

Wife 2.0 is a major upgrade, and definitely a keeper. My first boat bore her name. :)

My own boat does not leave you singing a hard to forget awful tune but it does probably tell people I am somewhat of an asshole who happens to be old and thinks he can still race.>>


Really bad, yet catchy tune? Hard to forget? Aren't those songs called ear worms?

I remember there was this one a while back that was driving all the parents of young kids barking mad. Hardly a day would pass in the cube farm without hearing some adult humming or singing the purple dinosaur song:

i love you
you love me
we're a happy family
with a great big hug and a kiss from me to you
won't you say you love me too

Bet you're reading it in Barney's voice, too, huh? It's just horrible when you can't get it out of your mind, isn't it?

Oh, and here's a pic of the USS Barney, DDG-6, to stay on topic.

Hey, that's my dog's name! Black mutt with a tan arrow shape on his butt fur.

I once saw a powerboat (~ 30 foot I/0) named the 'Sea Pussy'. Really. My buddy, who is more charitable than I, figured that English was not the owner's first language.

Just a clarification::



I started this thread to bitch about boat names that have dredged up memories of really bad yet catchy tunes that subsequent to seeing those names left me with a totally obnoxious leftover.



Boat names actually do tell us things about the owners of those boats.



I have no problem with those who wish to place a sign on the side of a boat which warns me of that craft's association with someone with whom I would likely prefer not to associate.


My own boat does not leave you singing a hard to forget awful tune but it does probably tell people I am somewhat of an asshole who happens to be old and thinks he can still race.>>




Special thanks to a seat belt company in Germany that manufactures harnesses used by the likes of Nascar, Formula One and Air forces all over the planet



WEll in that vein - there is one that Mssr Asymptote might recognize the association with..


The tender for this stinkpot was called

Lollipop


The name of the boat?

Shirley's Temple


Owned by the then President of an as yet not public Microsoft named.... Jon Shirley. Gouv - intentional offense to your whole damn state.... His wife was the quintessential rich Texas Bidn'sm'ns wife

Tastes Like Chicken
Partnership

For a summer or two there was a Blue Jay on LIS painted bright yellow, the kids who sailed it where notorious fuck ups, so they named their boat "Urine Trouble"

Dentist in town named his "Painless."

I like it when the name of a tender/dinghy carries on a theme from the big boat. One of my favorites: the cruiser was "Big cookie." Dinghy was "Little Crumb."

While I don't think it's a bad name nor original I guess my boat name hit a little to close to home on the eastern shore of Maryland as numerous years in a row they wrote "no name" or just left it blank for my boats name Short bus...

God I wanted to win that race just to make them announce my name at the awards ceremony

As a side bar a boat named after a slave whip is totally fine with this same club, so as a cliff note owning slaves on the eastern shore of MD is fine just don't make fun of the inbred retards.

Not one of the first but the first boats that Rob Mundle called his own. His brother Bruce had 'Oigle Shollop'. Didn'y mean anything, just liked the sound of the name.
