Think i've settled on a name for my B14, "Bad Habbit", not the most comic of names, but apt enough for me.  Unless anyone out there has some bright ideas.....

I went through a stage of calling my boats by the same name 'smooth but spunky'

I've got a mate who once owned a Lark with pink decks and spinnaker and it's name was 'Floyd' which I always found rather amusing and takes a bit of thinking about.

My current boat another Contender has no name although I thought of a few suitable ones whilst swimming arround it at Scaling Dam yesterday! My previous one was called 'Jilted' the origins of which always intriqued me.

My understanding is that it's only unlucky to rename a boat when it's in the water - so dinghies should be ok.

How about 'Byte Me' or if you're into Futurama 'Byte My Shiny Metal Ass!'
Not all chemicals are bad. Without chemicals such as hydrogen and
oxygen, for example, there would be no way to make water, a vital
ingredient in beer.

My (blue) topper is still nameless. We've used all the obvious ''betty swallocks'' etc. on other boats. Any suggestions? So far i've got ''unsTOPPERble''

nice one, I'd go for that, put a broome handle on the front as a fake bowsprit and you'll get lots of space on the startline!
