I hope that got Jamies attention! :D
For the past few days I have been surfing the net looking for possible names for my new boat and I ran across this one: Airlea, from the ancient Greek, meaning “ethereal”. :)
Oh, and did I mention, naming a boat is hard! :confused:

I like it Don.. And no, I have never heard the word before...
The only problem with naming a boat at all especially with a name people don't know is that you are constantly explaining the name. Had that with Uncas all the time...:rolleyes:
However, I like it.. especially as I know what it means...

Chuck.. a boat name has to have that umm attachment to the owner... It is not something that can be pulled out of a hat.

Yeah Chuck! :p
Actually, I do have a short list of names I like, but SWMBO thinks we can do better. Go figure! :rolleyes:
Anyway, a boat name is special and deserves serious consideration. For example, in another post, I mentioned that I might name my boat “Morning Star” and the dinghy “Twinkle”. Well, it wasn’t long before Twinkle the dinghy got reduced to Tinkle the leaky dink, or some such thing! :eek: No thanks in most part to Chuckles, the above. So, you see, you can’t be too careful. All is not as it first appears! :D
