One of my daughters is nicknamed Casie, short for Cassandra. We are kind of musical and I came up with "Cay of Sea". But to circumvent possible jealousy from other siblings, I am naming it "SCHMETTERLING"

Dutch for butterfly. LOL

I also like "DIAPASON" In organ music it means played without stops, or wide open

The name was "Fillet-Show"

Still makes me laugh.

Propgods listed mine earlier in this thread, Village Idiots. My pontoon is Village Idiots 2. It had the title for gayest name ever when I bought it, Baby Kitten. I have a 24 foot Carolina Skiff now that I call Flat Bottom Girl, although I have not put the name on it. I was pretty bummed last year when I saw another skiff with the name already,

Worst:
If you have a 17 or 18' inshore boat, "taint", because... It taint to big and itaint to small.
Or I think bow movement is hilarious.
Saw a boat day names " My $ bitch III"
Salty mouthful" is up there
Best:
"Redfish Reaper"
Poverty sucks on a sporty is funny
Buddies have a 60'+ cabo named reel grace, down in satellite beach. It actually looked really good on that boat.
What about " Reel Addiction" ?
Charter here is Knot@Work, I always liked that.

to be honest I read thru 10 pages of this thread and cant recall a single name that didnt make me cringe. There are some great names out there though for sure.

One thing that may be different down under to you guys is that we use Volunteer Marine Rescue (VMR) alot for logging on and off, usually retired older people.
And these people dont feel comfortable calling a vessel named "Dixie wrecked" and "Fat slut" sort of names.

Also having names that are unpronouncable or un-spellable-when your boat flips and a search is going on but no-one knows how to spell or pronounce your boat name (worse still gets it wrong!) you'll likely be wishing it was called "Nautilus" instead of "Gerupadopolous" or something like that!
