Its not a great one is it ? .. You could knock the first D off and have Unstable Diver .. or another technique is use a an internet anagram solver and use all the original letters

which gives amongst others

Bland Servitude

Burdened Vitals

Unlisted Adverb

Disturbed Navel

NO great boat names either but have fun

Ive used this method .. using some old Island names in my local area I've known for years, to come up with some of my best boat names .. for instance.. an Island Ive stared at, since I was a boy called Priest Island was the name of my last boat and an anagram of which was Intrepid Lass and a fine craft she was .. kept me safe

Re the rename thing. I'm not normally supersticious, but (do a search for the "how to rename a boat" thread)

I killed 2 engines then whilst on the rebuild found that the previous owner had written the name on the underside of the removable seat cusion base, and a re- upholster had covered it!

One attack with a bit of sandpaper, fresh coat of paint & so far so good..... :can we have a ghostbusters smiley?:

Many thanks to Woody73 for driving all around Kent this morning looking for somewhere to sea trial it!
If the river Aire gets any higher in this rain you may not have far to go !lol.

River Ouse, (launch at Boshopthorpe) is a good day out with lunch in York. You can't go fast but it allows you to try all systems and run a tank of fuel through the engine. Hornsea is great during spring/summer. Only thing is you have to beach for recovery. Keel band going on mine this year.

Are you sure its an Attaque, it looks very shallow V.
To me from the admittedly poor angle of the pic it looks more like my old Assault which is a very different beast.........

Yeah, that pic is at a poor angle. This one is of her in her new home:

which, if you compare it to this one from Humber's own site:

looks pretty similar. Though admittedly the V looks a little shallower on mine.

The assault has a funny sort of turned down bow. I stand to be corrected though. Both her previous owners refered to her as an Attaque.

Above looks a lot like mine. (the prequel) and the O-pro (the sequel).

Spent long enough under it scraping antifoul off to be sure...
