Should I name my SIB....

I was wondering, boats usually get named, but should I name my little 2.8m SIB? My wife thinks that we should.

Yep, you should. How about 'Ploppy'?

Boat names

Well, I went to the Marina today to buy a "30 day explorer" which has 30 x 1 day passes for 80, allowing use of the boat on the canal.
Looking at the book when I was filling it in, it seems like the first one they've sold since February. I bet most people don't bother.
The boat has to have insurance, and a name....so I had to think one up there and then.
Also there is a limit of 4hp for the engine.
I will have to peel the "6" off the back of the engine and replace it with a "4" then I'll be OK.

Just fit a cover over it, keeps it looking new too
