Picked up my 21' SH Ultra 211 last weekend. I'm an IT guy living in Key Largo (recent transplant from Colorado) - she's going to be named:

Any Key

Beyond the FL Keys reference, this is also a reference to an IT urban legend, that actually did happen to me me when I was working a help desk many years ago:

User: I can't get past this error message
IT guy (me): OK, what does it say on the screen?
User: Press any key to continue....
User: ...and my keyboard doesn't have an any key!
IT guy (me): Please hold (followed by raucous laughter)


Next boat will be the Escape Key

My ancestors were into real estate. Dad had a series of five with this name:

Bal, Bah, Sicym

Pronounced, "Ball Buh Sick-Em"

Default pizza

My business partner bought a blackfin in 1987-the broker named it "PIZZA CUTTER". The second pizza cutter was a 42' harley and was owned by our company. I still have the second pizza cutter

Some of my mates boats are:

Fishtales
Tangles
Shortfuse
Gigantor
Flash
Thunderbird 1 (gee, does he cop it on the VHF... Calling International rescue, come in, Thunderbird 1"
Mistress
Incredible
Beastmaster
Salty


My previous boat was called Moonlighter. This is the common name of a beautiful tropical snapper caught on the Great Barrier Reef here in Australia.

Current one is Kasmira. this is the second part of the scientific name of the Moonlighter: Lutjanus Kasmira

But the funniest I saw was:

Far-canals

Say it fast.......

Gotta admit 'Minnow' is a corny name but my tourboat was the MINNOW.



I really did offer 3 hour tours. I never got lost but the boat was almost a total once when it broke loose in a cat 3 hurricane.

That looks like footage from 'Gilligan's Island'.

"C h U N T"
True story, on the back of a Bayliner. The "h" was in very small font. Best or worst? You decide
