...In my future pier is a 55' wooden trawler displacing 92400 lbs with a 132 continues hp at 2500 rpm engine. The owner claims the boat does 9 knots full speed. In any case, we never saw him doing that speed and the boat was named SLOW MOTION by the owner.

I should have said Boozin and Cruzin was a slip boat. It never left that slip in 12 years I saw it there. It literally was just a party boat and derelict at that.

My last boat was "Me Like Cookies" of course one of my part time job is Selling Cookies For Living.... The back of the Boat had a Big picture of a Cookie Monster with a cookie in one hand and a spear gun in the other hand... He had on a mask & snorkel as well ... Very colorful- but coast guard and every bridge tender asked me to repeat my boats name several times....

We have a boat in our marina named "Bad Kitty...Good Pussy". I ain't lyin'!!! I will say that the female contingent of the vessel is....uuuuhhhh...quite a looker. And I guess if she is okay with it. But my first thought was.....who in the hell would name their boat such a thing. I have a picture i will post up here....

I wanted to name my first sailboat..."Puffy Galore"....but I didn't want to have to explain to my mother it's origin. So all of my sailboats were named after my mother...."Miss Helena".

Possibly the grandson of the person who named my father's boat (see post #3).

There's a rather large boat nearby called "I Won". One of these days I want to ask for the full story. Was it the lottery? Vegas? Or a divorce?

Seen on a Jubilee class sailboat at Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron. Full on for a very conservative Club, but no one took exception.
