If you spend even a small amount of time out on the water, you’re going to have to know how to tie a few different knots. Just having a few in your repertoire will make things a lot easier, even if you aren’t on a boat or ship. You know, a bowline, a hitch knot, a…square…joist. We don’t really know the names all that well.
The name on the top one might also have come from someone asking the owner why he or she was going to buy a boat. We also have another name, “Moonshadow IV.” What, pray tell, happened to the first three iterations? It’s a dangerous thing sailing under the moon, as this ship can attest. The waves will make things ever so difficult.
Gotta Get out the Magnifying Glass
We’d be surprised if you could pick out the name of this ship without squinting and getting really close to your screen. On the back end of the boat is a name that is lit up by the sunshine, and it tells us that the person who named the boat was looking into the future when he or she picked the name “Oops.” Not much else you want to call a boat that has been left in the middle of dry land.
Boats can go lots of places, but the middle of the street is not one of those places. Likely, this vessel disconnected from the truck that was towing it, and the people haven’t come back to get it yet. We’re sure they noticed – it will be pretty hard not to notice you are no longer towing a boat.
The “Black Parade” Writer Gets a Boat
My Chemical Romance is a band that plenty of people enjoyed blasting back when the band was big and they were in high school. They’re a little old school for bands by this time, but they have plenty of fans and we hear that they put on a good show. The person who owns this boat took the band’s name and made a small change.
Maybe you have to be a little off your rocker to want to own a boat (especially in this economy), or maybe this person was just trying to make his or her life a little easier to handle. Getting regular doses of sunshine is said to have a whole lot of great mental and physical benefits, so even if you don’t have a boat, soaking up the rays might help out.
Gotta Get Out of Here
A name that is short and sweet and tells you everything that you need to know about the person who has this vessel. Or at least what that person thinks about going out on the water. A great name for a ship. Sometimes the pressures of life can be too much. The kids are having a hard time at school, or work is adding project after project to your plate, and you barely have enough time to get them all done before more land on your desk.
What is the modern man or woman supposed to do? Simple – go somewhere the boss can’t reach you, and there’s no internet, and there’s no desk you have to post up at. Even if, for some reason, you’re still working, at least you can get a little bit of sun while you’re at it.
Sometimes Smaller Is Better
We’re going to go out on a short dock here and assume that this name comes from some kind of adult reasoning about body parts. Everybody knows that size doesn’t mean everything, right? You have to know how to use it. You wouldn’t pull out a huge hammer and use it to bang away at a tiny nail, would you? Or use a huge hammer to get a screw into a piece of wood.
Or use it to get the lug nuts off your car. Or use it to chop down a tree. You get the point. Sometimes a little boat can really come in handy. A tug boat will get a much bigger boat into port, or a small canoe can navigate a little stream. Also, it sounds like that thing that’s in your kitchen doesn’t it?
