I'll name that RIB in.....

Hi all

Well I'm due to pick up the new RIB at the weekend, and I'm struggling to choose between two/three possible names. My previous RIB was called Cariboo, so the obvious choice is Cariboo 2 (albeit stylised as 'two') or even Cariboo Too.

But the new RIB is a Walker Bay Generation 430, and the name Bay Runner is the other contender.

Not saying I'll take any notice of your preference, but would welcome your opinions on these, or other suggestions to consider.

What does your gut feeling say? I think you may already know the answer...

Interesting. I had a Canadian uncle who lived up in the Rockies and used to delight in chanting "there's a moose loose aboot this hoose", but Johnny Walker conjures some VERY bad memories for me. Suffice to say I can't take the lid off of a bottle of Scotch without feeling...

Actually, I really don't know which I prefer. If I did, I wouldn't have asked.

We might have PLAYED it on 78 as we were light on Chipmunks...

Okay, spit it out, you quite obviously have some problem with me, so why not get it off your chest.
