That was a long day...

Just got home after a 6 hour drive back from Kent to W Yorkshire with my new (to me) RIB. Now I'm BUSTING to play with it.

Many thanks to Woody73 for driving all around Kent this morning looking for somewhere to sea trial it!

There has been discussion about this .. it depends on how superstitious you are .. personally .. I'd keep it unless I could justify the change because

a: I hated the original
b: It means something I didnt like or had connotations about my kin

I'm not religeous .. but an old sea dog, with generations behind me .. trawlermen and all sorts

What is the name ?
