As many of you remember, I am a little late to the party. I just bought my first sail boat last fall.
I came up with this logo and would like to get a decal made or paint it on the boat before spring gets here. View attachment 162179

There is a boat I see on the bay every now and then, “Titan Uranus”, a Catalina 27 I think.
I did chuckle the first time I saw it and to each his own, but I lean just a little towards that level of humor is slightly crude to be on public display and to be the view non sailors have of us.

Agree but then I see some of the t-shirts people wear in public and I have to say, at least it's sort of clever and not patently offensive on its face.

My son's 6th grade science teacher insisted it was pronounced yur'-ă-nus. We tried to tell him that wasn't how it was pronounced and he thought we were teasing him.

My brother in-law names his dinghy Ur-gay.
And painted the name on all the crab pot bouys. That way he’d be able to identify the culprit who was taking crabs from his pots.
