What does "T/T" stands for?

I tried googling this but I could not find anything. When you have a tender you put "T/T (boat name)" on it, what exactly does it stands for? I know the one "T" is probably "tender", the other?

My guess is "Tender To". Would that be correct?

Just curious. Thanks.

Tt

I always thought it was a funny looking Audi

I Have heard that the reason for applying the TT is that if your yacht is moored in a rivewr or Marina then you didn't have to pay for the tender. Can't see that happening round here though

I think that is the case in the harbours around here. Poole Harbour Commissioners website says:

Quote:
Harbour Dues Exclusions. Vessels certified by Clubs or the Harbour Master to be Tenders, not exceeding 4.5m in length, provided that the Owner has paid Dues on the parent boat and the Tender is permanently marked and used as ‘Tender to Parent Boat’ and is NOT a double purpose boat
Personally I always thought the T/T was the marine equivalent of 'my other car is a Porsche'

Normally, if your tender is marked with the mothership's name, it will be covered under the mothership's insurance policy.

Here in the U.S. I think if it is a tender and it is "primarily used to take people back and forth to shore", then the tender does not need her own registration.

So yes, if you have a 6m+ rib and you put T/T Something on it, people would think you have a hell of a big mother ship.

Speaking of tenders... My colleague forwarded me this picture. Especially meaningful for someone in my profession (I am an architect)
