There has been much talk about changing the name of THE FLATULENCE. It seems that most people don't like it, and think she should have a more respectful name.
As I walk through the marina, I see some common, and not so common names painted on these boats.
Few are respectful...
some are funny...
some are clever...
and some even bawdy.
When I named TARDIS, I gave her the name because she is a small boat, but has great capabilities of traveling to far places. I am toying with the idea of keeping the same theme going when I rename THE FLATULENCE. I've been advised to take into consideration how her name will sound on the radio. Good point.
Several years ago, a turtle was brought home and placed in our backyard. This turtle needed a name. I couldn't come up with a good one, so I put the word out... I wanted suggestions for the naming of the turtle. My brother had the best name: Speedbump. So, from then on, she was known as Speedbump.
A few suggestions have already been given as to what THE FLATULENCE should be re-christened. Here is my thought... my readers should write in with their thoughts on names. If you think you have the perfect name for a 1972 Grampian 26, either leave it in a comment at the bottom of this page, or send it to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will gather them and this will help me come up with a good name for her.
Get your thinking caps on and let me hear from you.
