Close with the classical thinking line....Perseus father was...

Nestor ...( my old boat name ) ..who was of course one of the argonauts etc etc

So unless anyone can come up with suggestions ...??
I don't reckon F1 cars have personalities........not like RIBs.

Sorry, but if you're going to go down the classical route I'm going to have to play the "Titan Uranus" card!
You get what you settle for!

Latest idea for the SR is 'Perseus' - those in the know will see the reason for this ......

I'm open to suggestions for other names

Its a grey tube , white hull & console 1990 SR4...
That's a great name. All boats should have a name, my ten ft T/T even has a name of her own.

Hate those play on words type names like piston broke etc :thumbsdown:
