Achale-moi pas

 

for a boat in France.

It is not French from France, but "Quebecois". Totally unheard of in French from France. No French person would know what it means and would most likely be curious and ask the owner, if present on the boat, the meaning of the name.

 

A loose translation in English would be: Don't shit with me. In French French: M'emmerde-pas.

 

It can lead to interesting conversation; imagine the following in French...

 

Passerby: "Hello Sir!"

Boat owner: "Hi"

Passerby: "the name on your boat, it's kind of unique... what does it mean?"

Boat owner; "Don't shit with me!"

Passerby; "but sir! how do you dare! I am just asking what the name of your boat means!"

Boat owner: "I am telling you for the last time: don't shit with me!!"

How about "Humping Black Ass", the rename they did at WIRW a few years back to the unspecpecting black boat called "Jumping Jack Flash". Classic!

It was trash not ass, don't ask me how I know ( I've never touched white electrical tape)

Someone (can't remember who) was with a Quebecois in a restaurant in Paris. The Quebecois was ordering in French when the waiter said "please order in English - your French makes my ears hurt". :D

 

Quebecois French is to real French the way Loozyanna swamp speak is to English.

"Liquor and Poker"

Stockman's bar in Missoula Mt. always had a card game or two going on in the back room. Their T-shirts... "Liquor up front, poker in the rear" Still have one someplace if y'all want proof.

I bought a Murray 41 from a Gynaecologist from Brisbane (Queensland - Australia) many years ago and the name of the boat was called 'Bit O Fluff'.

 

We soon changed the name after we sailed her to our home town.

 

Apparently there was some type of picture of a Virginia on the top sides and the yacht broker told the owner to remove it before listing the boat for sale.

  • 4 weeks later...

Wanderer was O/K when Hiscock used it 75-odd years ago but it and its variants have become pretty trite in the intervening years.

 

Saw a good take off on it today though - a trawler named Squanderer
