Naming a boat

Years ago back on one of the Great Lakes I saw a large 70'+/- Motor Yacht named "Jobsite" and figured the owner had to be in a very successful construction related business to afford an impressive boat that size.
Also figured what a great way to get away from the office or home by simply calling in and saying "I'll be late as I'm still at the Jobsite!"

Best boat name I've seen recently in Colorado, especially in these economic times, was a yacht (anything over 30' on any CO lake qualifies IMO to be called a yacht), was the name, "Chapter 11."

Great name. I love the graphic!

PS: Gave me a great idea, got quite a gouge last year on my c-20 when a hoist stuck me during a beaching and was trying to come up w/ a font type for the name that would hide it... voila!!.... a silhouette graphic. Thx

In that vein, just spotted a small runabout with the name "Business Trip" the other day.
