The ultimate what to call my boat thread?

A 200 million research vessel to be named "Boaty McBoatface" by the voting public - Newstalk

That does it...no matter how difficult to come up with a name for the boat replacing Aquahound, it will NOT go to a public - or even a ribnet vote

I've mentioned this before, a local bloke I knew when younger had a nice Wayfarer sailing dinghy which was named 'Bastardface'. It was properly sign written on each side.

He was a bit of a non-conformist.
