Boat Names

A much discussed topic!

Narrowboaters tend to attach less superstition to the renaming of boats, ans narrowboats are never 'she'.

The current favourite is Whatamess, both a play on James' surname and a probable description of the interior! Its taken from a series of books we both loved as children about a messy Afghan hound puppy.

Previous, and still considered names have included Lily of Devon (since I'm from Devon, hehe), Spitfire, following our mutal love of the aircraft, and FadeToScarlet, an amalgamation of our usernames on the forum where we met: He's FadeToBlackout, and I'm scarlet ibis. Difficult to explain to people perhaps!
