My 16' Vanguard is "Frank the Tank". It was called a frankenboat as I was outfitting it as cheaply as possible (poverty boater, but I prefer Colorado junk boater), and it manifested from there.

13' Trib is "The Sports Car"

156R Aire is "No Worries"

14' cat is the "Bobcat" (blue tubes, yellow frame and straps for my alma mater Montana State, Go Cats!)

Kids call it "Gray Bouncy"

I'll go with "Bottoms Up" for PBR consumption, bloody mary bars, and while I wasn't on the oars at the time she may have shown her bottom to the sky

I'm so bad with coming up with names for anything...I have been trying to name my Old 14' blue hyside and my 14' blue NRS Revolution forever now. "Old Hyronsides" and "The Revobluetion" are the only things that even came close to sticking, but they need something more personal.

I also have "The Intex" and "The ducky"

I'm not very creative : (

We have a 14' Hyside named Goose. Full name Gray Goose. Just because, our NRS IK became know as Duck Duck.

Looking for a new name.

My first boat was a Udisco. (If you can run a Udisco, you can run anything!) It had more patches than original rubber. (Those of you familiar with Udiscos are nodding in understanding right now.) The Udisco was called "The Styx Ferry". My second boat, a Riken, was called "The Plug". A river has holes, I had the plug. I have a sick-fast Jack's Plastic Baby Cat. It is called "Bug" in honor of my son who soloed his first Class V in it. I just scored a blue NRS 136. Any suggestions?
