Thanks for the morning laughs Marcia.

Barbara Holderby

Marcia - Only YOU could come up with such a funny post!!!!You've obviously spent way too much time on the water with the bubbly!!!! :-)

Marcia Talley

Thanks, it was fun to write. And Barbara I was totally sober!

Deborah Crombie

Great post, Marcia dear! I will be sniggering all day. That's at least a year's worth of puns.

And reminds me of the time we took Kayti to England when she was six and she kept a journal of every pub name we passed. Still have it somewhere...

Marcia Talley

Debs, I had a friend who collected names of New York City cab drivers!

Hank Phillippi Ryan

Fabulous! lovely way to start the day. xoo

Elaine Viets

How do you sink a 40-foot cabin cruiser? There's an IV League docked near me, undoubtedly owned by a doctor. Whenever I see it and remember the medical bills I've paid, I'm tempted to set the thing on fire.

Marcia Talley

Elaine, I felt the same way about Bi-op-Sea. To think that the money they made on tests to diagnose cancer was spent on a pleasure craft! Ugh.

Water in the gas tank will do!




I remember that self-bailing cockpit.

Marcia Talley

Kitty, you were one of the first dunkees!

Paul Warner

Great fun, Marcia. My dad came up with a couple, the first: "Blo Peep", then came: "Oola" (no extra la needed), and last was: "Nautigal". As for me I'll have the Sloop du Jour, sil vous plait.

Marcia Talley

Paul, thanks for the memories!!

Linda Sprenkle

Frankly, I loved "The Kiev Sea." I still think it is a fine name for a musician's boat.

Hank Phillippi Ryan

SO great! Love this. I am SO impressed that you kept track. YOu are SUCH a writer! xooxo


I loved some of those obscure ones you put in at the end. And I really want to know the stories behind them.

You win in the didn't have a lot of fun in Virginia that weekend contest. I at least got to enjoy Mathew from inside my house. Just wish the schedule had been reversed - tropical storm after replacing leaking window would have been preferable.
