Some boats are really memorable - anyone racing Laser 4000s about
five years ago must remember a yellow boat called 'Chunky Monkey'
- the name was massive, and it was great when you were racing to
talk about, 'the 'Chunky Monkeys' have just tacked,' much better for
communication than just a sail number... I wonder where the boat is
now - as I know the couple who owned it are now living in America...
does it still have its name?

Reminds me of the Laser 5000 they built in red with 'HARKEN' all down the side ( and on the sails and spars ). Couldn't exactly miss it!

I remember the Harken 5000, it got T-boned back in 2000, lovely kite-pole shaped hole!!  Does anyone remember what that pink and yellow I14 was called, 'granny' something i think. 

Ostraker- how about Frank Bruno or Muhammad Ali, i.e. both heavyweight contenders.

My boat above "Fud Pucker" was a Contender , I was going to call the next one "Fud Pucked" it has weight connotations if your mind is twisted like mine ,I never used the name , but you can have it .  Fud Pucker went to Shetland .

I reckon 'Slug' (or 'Fat Slug') would be quite funny (it would make me
laugh anyway) - but you'd need to be fast!
