    Default Name your boats!

    OK. Here is a bit of fun......... Tell us the names of your boats?

    Most of us have more than one radio yacht and some have interesting names, with associations and influences that to others may seem a little vague, but to us, mean a lot.

    Here are mine;

    AC15.............. Alinghi
    Footy............. MuckingAbout
    EC12.............. Medication.........earlier boat.......Tahi...maori for "ONE" = KZ1
    IOM................ Lord of the Rigs
    A Class........... Triton
    10 Rater.......... Panic
    RM................. Kotahimano..... maori for 1000...(design RM1000)
    Multi............... Multiple Magic.........(recently sold)
    Do it NOW before it`s too late.

    All of my boats have the same name, Transom because that is what it said on the plans.
