Crazy Boat Names

I have seen a lot of funny boat names and thought we should share some of the funniest ones we have seen.

In a marina next to me were two boats;
Harry Oyster
Bearded Clam

Another one;
M T Wallet

I have others but I'm waiting before I post again.

Let the fun begin!!

Contains 1950's-era sexist humor, which most of us have grown out of. But if this is too risqué, mods, pls delete.

My dad bought a wooden runabout that he just loved, totally oblivious to what the name, "Gnatnoop," spelled backwards--or later said he was. He used it for over a year before someone took my mother aside and broke the news. She made him paint over it that very night. The boat was rechristened "Star of the Sea."

My first two boats. "O'Frigate". Current "Attitude Adjustment".
Craziest I saw " You 're Dead a Long Time".
The name I gave my buddy that bought a 37 Silverton with 454 gassers. "Thirsty Seven ".

Tw0 short stories:

Our son provided the name for our 18' center console, "Time Release"; it would have worked well for the trawler.

But the GB was named following a conversation with a granddaughter, Grace, who whispered to her granddad that he needed a bigger boat. That conversation took place when she was about 2 months old, hence one reason for the "new", bigger boats name; "Amazing Grace". Her grandmother couldn't help but go along.
Actually, I was going to use the name that grandmother provided. When we were discussing the purchase, my wife gave in and said, "just low-ball the offer" never thinking it would be accepted. Her spontaneous reaction to the accepted offer would have, I think, been a great name for any boat; "Oh Sh..". The name board would have been cheaper too.

There was another boat that unfortunately burned up named,
Boozin and Cruzin

I laughed when I saw it was charred and the windows blown out.

NSAIL yes, I do know what they imply and the fact they were close to each other made it funnier.

Does Beavis own one and Butthead own the other? Or, maybe Howard Stern owns both?

Laughing at a boat that burned up?

I must not have a sense of humor anymore as I see nothing funny about those names, or the burned up boat. When I was a teenager, maybe I would have.
