Our first boat after we got married was named Segrab, simply our last name (Barge) pluralized and spelled backwards....

Spitfire I... to and including... Spitfire IV


That was my dad's boats' names. Guess what he flew in WWII


I'd help him hand carve name and numbers, Gold Leaf Paint the carves, then... ten (10) coat Valspar varnish each boat's Philippine Mahogany transom plaque. Remember it like yesterday. We did number IV on our big dining room table; we'd also built and varnished the table too!

Tiz Great Memory! Thanks for mentioning!!

Dad used to frequent Spruce Head... early 1970's - 2000 +/-. Been there back when myself.

Dad's 1950 38' raised deck sedan (originally open sport fisher) with fly bridge may still be somewhere in those waters. I hope so! She was built at Brooklyn NY Navy Yard by master shipwright for himself. He built the pilot boats there too. If cared for that boat could easily be alive and in good shape today! I've only one tiny old picture of her with dad sitting in cockpit; not worth posting here. My brother probably has photos in his barn. He's got "Spitfire IV" name-board hanging on a wall.

Mid to latter 70's pops sold it out of Camden Harbor... Shermans Point Cove was where moored. Mom and dad sure are there for eternity. We spread their ashes into Penobscot Bay off the good ol' converted lobster boat "Betselma". https://www.camdenharborcruises.com/site/about/vessels

You see dad's boat throw her a kiss for me! Dad and I refinished that boat top to bottom throughout mid to late 1960's... she was a mess to begin with, and, she knows me well from many years of loven labor.

Distinguishing marks: Three oblong port holes each side of hull / Single Perkins diesel in center of salon floor / Mahogany lower cabin (was all varnished) with galley to starboard as entered, dinette to port... then head to stbd, closet to port... V-berth forward. / All joinery beautiful with broad rounded corners at each wall junction. / Cockpit interior walls horizontal slated approx. 3" x 5/8" planks with about 3/8" separation for air flow.

Happy Boaten Memories! - Art

A few weeks ago I saw a 50+ foot cruiser with the name "WHO" in huge letters across the stern. (Just checked...It's a 51' Navigator out of Port Orchard). Anyway, I'm sure you can make up your own Abbott and Costello emergency call. I'll get you started.

"Mayday, Mayday, Mayday"
"This is Seattle coast guard. Who is calling Mayday?"
"Yes we are."
"What is the name of your boat?"
"Who."
Etc, etc, etc, etc.

And also this from a trip to Maine...

Good point Tonic😅. Art, I guess most of us look back and wish we had taken and kept more pictures. She must have been an awesome vessel.

Was thinking of "Knot Nice" as a possibility, until I Googled it.

The most unusual name I have seen is a boat named after the numbers of the lottery a fella won in Washington state. It looked something like this:
12,46,9,17,23,32,14. I would like to hear that conversation on the vhf with the coast guard.

Maybe he can use a shorthand ... "This is A Bunch of Numbers, over."

In a book by Australian author Nick Earls(also a medico) an orthopaedic surgeon character had a boat named, say 381, (I forget the actual number), being the Medicare billing item number for a knee arthroscopy procedure, which was how he paid for the boat. The surgeon`s other trick was to write the item number in the water peeing off the side of the boat.
Not sure if this helps.....

I thought Rick Springfield should name his boat 867-53o9 and his dingy Jenny

Trying to find a name

My last name is True and my middle initial is B so we are thinking about "B True". What do you think? Any names you can come up with for True? I thought of "Trident True" but I am not sure it went over too big.
