Just thought we'd paste online our latest acquisition (proudly sponsored by Stabi-Craft boats and Discovery Channel).

Expect to see live squid soon :smile:

It doesn't have a name yet. Anyone with any suggestions?

I think it can only be:

CTHULHU

(or some variation thereof... Perhaps Great Cthulhu or Call of Cthulhu or even Cthulhu Cruises...)

All hail the dead but dreaming lord of all Cephs!

...and imagine the confusion at the wharf as they try to figure that one out. :cthulhu:

Congratulations on the boat!

Hmmm.

Alecton deux? No, that probably wouldn't fly with American audiences. (Our government encourages us to hate the French.)

Hell, if Condoleezza Rice can have a supertanker named after her (true story), then that there jet-screamin' Stabicraft vixen ought to named Tintenfisch.

You are kidding about the tanker, right??? OMG....

Anyway, call the boat the Pequod...

Hee hee... Just pulling your leg. Hmm.... How about the Maelstrom? The White Squall? The Ancient Mariner?

About about "Fujisawa's Sake"?

Yeah, didn't think so...

Good luck!
