The origin of Messing About In Sailboats

  • The original quote is from Kenneth Grahame's Wind In the Willows: "There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats."

Not a bad list overall, but I think it's interesting that the only name that appears on both Boat US's list and FirstBoat's list is "Aqua Holic".

FirstBoat's list is here:

Your original Stupid Boat Names post was before I became a regular reader of this blog, so it was interesting to go and look at it. There are a couple of names I could add to the list ...

At Elephant Butte, there used to be a boat (that I haven't seen in a while) called "The Office" -- as in, "Honey, I need to spend some time at The Office ..."

And then there was a J/22 sailed by an all-women team called "Does This Boat Make My Butt Look Big?"

I remember seeing a boat called "assignment". Presumably he could tell people he was on assignment when he went away sailing!

The best boat name i saw was old leaky lol

Tony

How about chop-aholic or hull in the water?

I like "Second Chance" -- inspiring and sounds really adventurous. Well, at least for me. I've been dreaming to own a boat and travel with my wife the moment I retire. Hah! One of my favorite uncles is just waiting for his CE proofing this summer and he'll show me some of his sailing tricks.
