So me and my dad have a new boat
it needs a name
Names I like are:
Verboaten
Dances with Waves
The Bloodthirsty Privateer of the Sargasso Sea

Names he likes:
Really lame stuff like "Aquaholic"

Basically I'm looking for really cheesy or super-awesome or wicked-sick or far-out boat names.
It's just a 19' Ski boat.

    The obvious answer is "Suck My Wake"

    There's no point in you getting both of yourselves all worked up and ready to chart the undiscovered country, then having her flush crimson red, run to the bathroom, and spend twenty minutes straining and grunting and stressing out because you're all ready to deliver your package but there's a three inch thick Sunday paper clogging up the mail slot.

    Spent the weekend at the office...

    Is it being kept in a marina? Most of the punny names you'll come up with are likely already taken. You can still use them of course, but you might grimmace everyday when you see the same name on another boat.

    Unless, of course, you want The Seaward. Because that's clearly the best.

    wet dream

    though i have to put in my votes towards 'the seaward' 'the office' and 'im on a boat'

    i think if i saw a boat go past that had "IM ON A BOAT" written across it, whether i knew the song or not, i'd fall overboard laughing

    The rarely appreciated X series of games by Egosoft (X2, X3, X3:Terran Conflict).

    Ships in the game, by default, are named %playername%'s %manufacturer_species% %modelname%

    So if you have aquire Buster class ship, which is made by the Argon, and your name is the default Player, it would, by default, be called "Player's Argon Buster"

    [edit] it was mostly a joke suggestion, as only about 1/1000 people would get it, and only if all those 1,000 people happened to be geeks.
