My hyside was Blue Balls, before that Log Jam, current boat is still in need of an official name but currently orange crush and Jack (short for Jack O' Lantern) are the leading contenders.

My driftboat was named "the Fly Line Conspiracy" as the ability to get tangled in it was simply amazing...

My boat is the "Bataraft" after finding a dead bat stuck in the frame that we clipped out of a tree when the boat was on top of a three-stack on the trailer en route to corn creek. It's also been referred to as the "Nataraft" for those rare occasions when I drink Natty Light on it.

Two kayaks.

B.O.B. - Orange XP10
Calypso Marie - Black and blue Remix 79. Combined John Denver and Roger Clyne song titles to get the name.

Yup. It sounds a bit weird when I say "I'm going to paddle Marie today". Even my boating friends give me curious looks at these times. My non-boating friends? What non-boating friends? They disappeared years ago.

Well, we started to name our boat "paraschutz"
but then we discovered that most river authorities wouldn't let us use it on their rivers.

Cause, they said we don't allow no parachutes on the river.

ba da bum!

So we named it puddle pirate.

I was going to name my new orange Aire 156R "Orange Crush" but on a recent Cabarton float I saw the Sarah (from Cascade outfitters) and her fiance had named his NRS cat Orange Crush and had it stenciled...I was very sad. My boys are now deciding between "the creamsicle" and "the Thing (of Marvel comics fame). My old green Star Super-Bug was called "the flying pickle".
