this middle aged schoolboy sexual innuendo is pathetic and tasteless. It might have been funny in 1970 but times have changed

Ah, the thought police are back.

Yes, lets have a thread for the most boring, humourless boat names.

Agree...some people need to lighten up.

Mind you, we are now in an age where Dr Zeuss books get cancelled, and Fawlty Towers "The German's" episode gets banned in some countries

Time you updated your name and photo :-)

Yeah working on it ...got told off by the missus actually for only thinking up rude names for the boat .
 

Cant keep original name as it’s already registered with another boat which buggers up getting a PHRF ....might call it “Karen fatuwoke”

What is the apparent wrongness of Dr Zeuss? That is far too woke for me to understand why that would be banned?

Depiction of Africans in some books is not great.

And they haven't been "banned". The estate of the author has withdrawn 6 of the books from sale. Their initiative, their choice.

As DoT said and is I may add, the Estate has simply withdrawn those 6 from being reprinted. It's not like they have had existing copies removed from shelves.
The author drew cartoons for a magazine in the 1920's and when viewed today, some of the cartoons are pretty bad. The worst I have seen had a caption that suggested taking a Black home to burn on the fire like a log. I cannot remember the exact wording.

I am thinking about renaming mine after a great bumber sticker I just saw

MAGA - Make Ardern Go Away

apparently heaps of cheap crew gear out there already branded in red and white

Your effort to retask gear in this resource challenged world is admirable.
