On the Water, Off the Grid

Wow, I'm not sure what to suggest for boat names for this family, but what a cool story. Here's their message:

My fiance Len is a marine surveyor, it has been a life long dream for both of us to live on the water. Len is 65 and I am 60, we just bought an accommodation barge and have water rights for the next 99 years...we will be living off the grid.

We just exchanged Len's sailboat for a tugboat so that we will be able to move the barge to go on holidays. Len is also a sea captain.

The tug is being painted "apple lime cocktail" on the wheelhouse, is black on the hull and white above the green around the windows with a black stack. Len likes to play the guitar and sing country songs... he proposed to me with a George Strait song... "I Cross My Heart"

Three of us will be living on the barge... my 16 year old daughter, Morgan, will be kayaking to shore which will take about 10 minutes and then taking a bus to school.
