: Finally, the boat needs a name. Among nominations from my weird friends are
: the following (see if you can come up with one too) :)

: The Liz Taylor (it may dump you at any time)
: The Ted Kennedy (it's always tipsy)
: The John Rocker (lots of speed, no control)
: The Mariah Carey (very unstable)
: The Britney Spears (i won't explain that one!)

going with the grain:

Woody Harrelson (more like the son of a wood barrel)
Speed racer (should be obvious)
Andy Jackson (Old Hickory)
L.A. Hospital (actors always make news when checking into Cedars-Sinai Medical center)
Kevin Costner or Mel Brooks (Robin Hood (Men in Tights) had a wood bow, your boat has a wood bow and stern -- which might give more weight to the Men in Tights claim, as there was some wooden acting in that film, too.
Cinnabon (great rolls)

Names to avoid:
Natalie Wood (she drowned)
W.C.Fields (he avoided water because of what the fish did in it.)
Mae West (Even if you wanted to allude to using West System epoxy you might not want a boat named after a life jacket.)
