    Default Best boat names?

    So, I'm currently tracking the XBeatII as it goes for a jaunt down the Cornish coast and came across another boat out to sea.

    I did have myself a chuckle. What are the best names you guys have come across?

    Heard a Mayday in Solent last year, boat was called "Sod the Wedding". Despite the Mayday CG seemed unable to contain a moment of amusement...

    We were an Achilles 24 before we grew up a bit. The boat name was Mouette, more often than not radio calls responded with " Wet this is Tawe Lock" or wherever.
    They knew something, she was a very wet boat in almost all conditions.

    Then there is Torri gwynt in Newlyn, Buckie Lugger seen in Oban and Sackapoo seen in Torquay.

    My friend's boat is named 'Shark Hooverer'! Sounds silly for me but I loved the name. I'm not sure where he got the idea but his grandfather was once chased by a shark.

    I must admit to a smile when I see “Slipper 1” in Cardiff Marina, just upstream of the footbridge.
