Spare Rib ? ? ?

How many of you thought the name "Spare Rib" was a good name for your boat when you bought it and found that at least one other boat on the marina had the name. This happened to me and one other guy in Dublin.

A boat on our marina has been called "On the Rocks" ! Imagine that one in a mayday situation. We ended up calling our boat Luvly Jubly........ long live Del boy and Rodney.

I know of a hard boat called "Wayne Kerr" - rumour has it he was stopped by the Old Bill whilst towing and was asked to cover up the name on the transom.
