This one is a hefty two-fer. It’s a nautical pun and a reference to women! I hesitate to call it inappropriate since it merely mentions the existence of women, but if that’s what floats your boat (ha!), go ahead.
Fish & Chicks is a play on a classic United Kingdom meal, fish and chips, which we would call fish and fries, but they got their words all mixed up over there. This boat is all about two things: Gross slimy monsters and fish. We kid, we kid.
Heavy Metal Fan
Please headbang responsibly. Wear a lifejacket, and don't get your heavy metal hair caught in any moving parts. It kind of looks like this name was taped on using electrical tape or duct tape, but that's actually a pretty good approximation of the Slayer logo; I just edited the smallest bit. It almost takes a moment to see that it's actually a homophone of “sailor.”
Turn that dial all the way to eleven, and hope that the liquid all around you is actually water when you take this ship out to sea and start to blast your favorite band.
Boat owners and nerds don't often overlap, but when they do, wonderful things happen. One of the wonderful things is the name of this next boat, Error 404 Fish Not Find. Now, of course, you don't need us to tell you that a 404 error is when someone tries to navigate to a website's page, and while the website itself does exist, the specific page doesn't.
And the fisherman is the same way. He knows the water is there, and the fish are in the water, but what if he (or she) can't find the right fish? They get an error.
Farewell to Boats
Say goodbye to this painful pun. The Sea Ya, huh? How long did it take you to come up with that one? How many crumpled-up sheets of lined yellow paper fill the trash can of this owner? Did he jolt awake in the middle of the night shouting Eureka?
One way or the other, we're sure he's happy for that load off his mind. We just hope nobody in the family had to ask for clarification because this is just about the lowest of the low when it comes to the branches of the humor tree. What would be funnier is if this boat is pretty slow, so people call out see ya to it as they pass.
Think About It
Plenty of boat owners have had trouble coming up with a good name for their new vessel. It has to be clever, it has to be nautical, and it has to be unique. This is where we got the name Knot Shore, which also has the added benefit of giving us some insight into the owner's difficulty in christening his addition to the marina.
It's a good name, it's a conversation starter, and it's punchy enough to stick in mind in a good way. There's also the fact that it's a great way to start a “Who's on First” style running gag, though hopefully not too often, or the owner will start to lose friends.
