Boat Names

So i just bought a new rib and i am looking for a cool name with a little humour. I though of a few:
.Carpe Diem - seize the day in Latin
.Anchor-Managment
.Aquaholic
.Nauti-Buoy
.SeasTheDay
.Sea-Duced

But they just dont draw me.
Please share any boat names

boat near us is called 'ringpiece'!
heard one called 'wet dream' do a radio check - the female coastguard was very proffessional with her response

Seen some great names in Cowes: Ferroconcrete boat called "Maid of Portland" and one with a boozy lot on board called "Searosis of the River"

Good point, you need to have something that works on the radio, so 'sync n rib' is out of the question

I saw a suggestion on here to put place names into anagram generators. I quite liked that — having somewhere that means something to you encoded in the boat's name.

I've never managed to make anything suitable that way, but it's fun trying.

Jenks just reminded me of another - "Whale Oil Beef Hooked" - seen on a boat in Lymington.
