Working along the lines of you built it.

'Towerbuilt' - Like the Peterbuilt trucks

'Towermax'

'Highmax'

or the viper theme

'Snakes Alive'

'Snake Charmer'

'Blue Snake'

'Solent Viper'

Its late, I'll think on it.

Nasher.

Just thought though, 'MoreYum' is quite a good spoonerism

Anything with High or Tower is out

Solent Viper is quite good, I had already thought of Vipers Venom earlier and had even drawn some graphics up of what I wanted, but I thought the name might not be so long lived if you get what I mean.

Simply 'Venom' is okay. I would steer away from anything too twee. It can sound a bit daft if you need to speak to the coastguard etc;

"Hello Solent. This is "Pink Pussy"......

I know what you mean, but I'm trying to steer clear of the more common names and want something a little more one off.

This is a quick sketch of the graphics I drew for the Vipers Venom Idea. Just gives you an insight to what I'm looking for.

I'm glad you forshortened the name Robin, I'd of needed at least an 8m one to get that lot on

My last RIB was called Kohaku after a Red and White Koi Carp. The blue and White one has quite a boring name
