    Hey guys, i just got a new toy with my room mate. Its a 1974 Venture 17 foot sail boat with a cuddy cabin. Here's the deal, we need a name for it. Neither me or my room mate have ever even watched anybody sail a boat, much less ever been on one, so we are gonna be self taught. Thats where the name comes in, we wanna name it something to reflect how stupid we are. we've narrowed it down between "Bad Idea" and "Huge Mistake". what do you guys think? BTW, i welcome any other suggestions. so tell me which one you like or come up with something else for us to consider. here are some pics of her....

    "Death Trap" looks appropriate to me....

    Or maybe "It Leaks" :D

    How about "Shark Bait"?

    Alright, I gave it some thought and I think "The Deep End" would be a pretty damn good name. As in, "This boat is helping keep me from going over..."

    If you really want to get people wondering, name it something completely unrelated to anything. I'd love to see "Dog Will Hunt" on the back of a boat. :cool:

    What's your timeframe or are you just waiting for something to jump out at you?
