Ah, how clever the owners must have felt when they came up with the name for this ship. It’s got the word knot in there – good start – and then it also has sail. Nobody is going to be getting their hands on this ship when it’s out on the water.
This nautical pun makes this name a classic for the list. A problem arises when the owners decide they don’t want to keep paying to keep this ship on the water and try to off-load it. The “For Sale” sign and the name on the back of the boat make for an even funnier image.
We Wonder What His Name Is
We aren't going to go and say that the name of this boat is the best thing we've ever seen, but at least it isn't water, sea, or nautical pun. The name of the ship is “50 Shades of Me,” a name that he ripped from the popular novel and movie series “50 Shades of Grey.”
We're told that the man who owns this boat is named Grey, but we doubt that he's of the same financial status as Grey from the series, since that Grey could have afforded a much better boat, with plenty of interesting rooms that are, for the most part, private.
A Quick Renaming
There are some things that change over time. For instance, a classic member of Egyptian mythology might now only be known as a dangerous group. That is, of course, just a random example.
And hey, speaking of random examples, it looks like the owner of this ship has decided he didn't like the old name, which began with an unknown letter and ended with “SIS.” All he had to do to put his own spin on the name was take a little bit of spray paint and add a few judicious vowels. Of course, it's always been this name. Stop asking.
A Ship for the Ladies
This mangled series of letters do have a name in there somewhere, but it's not the kind of name you should say out loud in polite company. Stuck inside the word yacht is a rude name for those of the female persuasion.
From the picture we have, it's a little hard to tell if the ship is actually a yacht, but it's possible. Was the name of this ship there because it's for the gals of the family? Or is it for the guys of the family to get a place away from the mothers and sisters of the world? Your guess is as good as ours.
Have You Come Up With a Good Nautical Pun Yet?
This seems like the kind of name that came out naturally as the owner was trying to come up with a good name for the new member of the marina. People kept asking him if he had thought of a good one yet, and eventually, he just started saying this.
The name stuck around, and after a few hull stickers, they made it official. “'Fraid Knot” could not only be a joke about ropes and knots, etc., but from the picture we see here, it could also be an answer to the question, “Has the lake melted yet?”
