I think you might be right about that. Who knew these folks were so "deep"...

A friend named his SIB "Ego"... as in "Inflated".

Good thread!

Boat's name is Lochran - Gaelic for 'lantern' - should have a grave accent over the 'o'.

My grandfather was the captain of one of the ships that used to service the navigation bouys on the Clyde, in the days before solar power and batteries when they were oil(?) fired lamps. Back in the 30's/40's I guess. Anyway, the boat was called the 'Torch' and because most of the navigation crew were Gaelic speakers, the ships' tender was called 'Lochran' - so keeping a tradition going!

Fascinating to see how others have approached the question though!

I've always had a childish interest in pirates, reading any books I can get about them.

Edward Teach, better known as Blackbeard, had a ship called 'The Queen Annes Revenge' and I wanted to name the RIB using a play on words of that. As I've been known as Nasher since I was a kid, I came up with:-
'The Nashers Revenge'. Obvious really.

More recently It's also a two fingered salute, saying I've still got it, despite everyone that has made me redundant or taken advantage over the last 3 years.

I named the boat I have at the moment after an Island in the summer Isles off the west coast of Scotland called Priest Island which I have looked out onto for many years since I was a boy. I couldnt ever access it, untill I was old enough to afford my own rib and my boats name is a perfect anogram of the Islands' name
