    Seriously, it rhymes with Bastille, so, say murr-till. Accent on the second syllable. :)

    Sounds good to me. But unfortunately, it would inevitably be transformed into Myrtle instead. And who wants a boat named after someone's maiden great-aunt?

    I also made the mistake of suggesting "After You" to my kid. You know....so he could tell his girlfriends, 'I named it after you.' He really likes that one; what have I raised?

    You have a maiden great-aunt named "Blueberry"?" :)

    cool

    What a place you have there! there's good stuff lying around everywhere. To me that's like being in heaven. A seat-of- the-pants build like you are doing is something that's been lost in our high tech world. Congrats on taking a step back into boat building sanity.

    Hate to say it but here's "After You"...less than 3 weeks done:

    Show him this and maybe he won't want to use the name.

    If the name is painted on the stern, perhaps it should say, "Before You". :D

    If you paint the name on the bow, you could name it "Behind you".

    If you paint it amidships, you could make it, "Next to Stupid".
