    "Not Muchu Pichu", (does not pitch much) and hopefully will not end on top of a high mountain...
    "ManiB" (part place and part name as per your avatar/location)...
    "The Tart" - she needs quite a bit of 'tarting up'...

    "kinell"

    You gotta say it right.

    You gotta watch the foriegn translation, what you may think is totally harmless has a whole new meaning in German for instance.

    My boat is called VIXEN the female fox --seems harmless does'nt it.

    It took me ages to choose that looking at the internet etc etc.

    A German comes along shouting Vixen Vixen or vixer or something and laughing .

    It means ******!!

    Boat Names

    We have had three boat names.

    When I worked (for want of a better description) on the waterfront as a Stevedore, I named our yacht "On Strike"

    The next boat was a motor boat aptly named "Chivas Regal"

    Our present yacht tells everyone where we are at in our life's journey and is called "Get-a-Life"

    Probable our next boat will be named, "Please bury 6 feet"

    Cheers

    One of my favorite boat names was "Never Again VI".

    Fric,
    With a slightly mischievous glint in my eye, if spoken as a Nzlnder that would sound a bit like "Never-Agen-Sux" depending on how heavy the accent was,,,

    Get-a-life,
    I have toyed with the prospect of calling my boat "Viking's-Pyre"... but followed the advice of my Lovely Lady and will name my build with a word that means "In the light of God"... - I think she is still working on my Christian enlightenment...

    Given that you actually have a boat instead of just dreaming about it, something like "Kiss My Aft" would be appropriate......
