why dont call them a name like u call ur dog? like bob or sumtin, it would
make u much more attached to ur boat than if called it some saying or
adjective like 'need for speed'......
after all some boats do have personalities

well the SWIMS one was ok but it doesnt really make much grammtical
sense.... sorry, nerdular nerdence, but it is sort of confusing, ok it reads
the same upside down which is funny but it doesnt seem to have much to
do with sailing, i guess if ur boat is upside down u might be swimming...

I always refer to a boat as "old girl" when I'm sailing, not sure why, just a daft habit I got in to.
