I had a similar problem, in 2004 registered as Blow 'n' Away, in 2009 I'm told it has to be Blown Away, not allowed apostrophe's slashes or anything.

What it's registered as and what you write on the transom could differ slightly.

One Lady, 'Trish Lambert, or something like that treats all of them. Very impressive I think.

For the rules i'm not surprised. What is the apostrophe in the phonetic alphabet?

I'm sure there must be lots of names that wouldn't be accepted by the UK authorities.

"The" must be tricky and I was always somewhat surprised that you had used it in The Full Morty. An example of what I mean would be you calling a Mayday and a CG Operative being told to find the data on the craft and failing as they'd be searching for just Full Morty...
