It hasn’t gone off yet, but we assume that it will if the boat ever gets transported to Middle Earth or some other dangerous fantasy land. Then that name will REALLY come in handy. We’re told that this name is Dutch, and we tried to find out if it meant something else in its native tongue, but we couldn’t find anything definitive.
It does seem to be an album by the band Magma, but we are going to go out on a limb and assume that this boat isn’t named after a Magma album. We guess it’s possible, though. There aren’t very many other explanations coming to mind other than that and a warning against marauding warriors.
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?
Embracing the Title
“Boomer” is the name of a generation that started right after World War II – all those veterans came home and started big families, creating a baby boom. The generation is starting to become one of the older ones now, and the name of the generation has actually become an insult used by those who are younger. Maybe you remember the week or so when seeing “OK boomer” would result in someone being shamed.
It went away pretty quickly, but some people embraced the idea. Maybe there’s a deeper reason for this person naming his or her boat “Boomer,” but we don’t think we’ll be able to figure it out. Maybe it’s something to do with explosions. Maybe this person was just trying really hard to come up with a unique name, and the first place checked was social media.
We Got a Couple of Quackers Here
Obviously, a lot of people who need to name their boat want to come up with something funny. They want to come up with something memorable. They sometimes want to come up with something that is a bit adult. We’re not sure if “Duck’s Nuts” is actually an adult reference, but it’s certainly memorable.
It sounds like it could be a play on words or something that you only notice if you’re saying it out loud, but we can’t seem to figure it out. Well, whatever the backstory to this one is, it looks like it gets plenty of use if those two boaters are any indication. Do they go out for ducks? It seems more like a fishing boat, but we guess the differences are going to be pretty minor.
That’s What We’re Hoping for, Anyway
Is it just us, or does that boat have a highway sign on it? Maybe it’s sticking up out of the water behind it, and it just looks like it’s in the boat. Anyway, this boat is after a specific thing, and we’re surprised that anybody is ever able to get this name for their craft. The “Got Milk” campaign is so famous that it has spawned all kinds of similar campaigns for other products, parodies, jokes, and more.
We aren’t surprised in the slightest that a fishing boat somewhere out there on the water has this name. In fact, there are probably a lot more than one, but they have to be in different places. Registered with different states, or something like that. That’s why there are so many different boat names.
