Filthy Oar and other dirty boat names

Thinking about naming your boat with a potentially offensive name?

There's an interesting discussion about the pros and cons of dirty boat names over on SailNet. The young guy who started the thread stays active throughout the discussion and progresses from naming his boat Filthy Whore to naming it "Briella" after his kids.

My vote is for the latter, though if I did go the other way I would be likely to mix it up a little, and perhaps name it Filthy Oar.

The discussion is worthwhile for its comments about potential FCC violations (for yelling profanities over your boat's VHF radio), as well as for its insight into the thinking of yacht club sailors vs. sailors who talk like, well, sailors.

You can read the entire thread at SailNet here.
