New (old) SR name ?

I'm a firm believer in every boat needing a name ( and not just for ofcom ! )

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...

Now, I don't think that boats with outboards should have names. Only numbers. Just like racing cars should have numbers not names.

Hmmm. I love a puzzle...

1. Possibly you have a pair of Flying Sandels (not liking this one)

2. Maybe you refer to yer Ex as the Gorgon Medusa (prefer this one, I call Mrs willk this before she has her barnet sorted of a mornin')

Is it because Peresus' grandfather was the king of Argos..... and thats where the materials have been sourced? OR is it cos he defeated Poseidon?

I think RedBull F1 team have names....but have to disagree ..all boats have to have names as all boats have personalities ...don't they ?

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 ...??
