Boat Name of the Day: the Essex

We chose the "Essex" because today is the anniversary of her sinking after being attacked by a ticked off sperm whale in 1820, inspiring Moby-Dick (which inspired our choice for today's boat name as well as the Daily Boater's Sea Song of the Week.)


Previous Boat Names of the Day this week, mostly inspired by customers of BoatNameGear, were:
  • Thursday: Knot a Clue
  • Wednesday: Mestre Belo
  • Tuesday: Indulgence
  • Monday: BRANDI
