Naming The Dink, That Was Fun. WE HAVE A WINNER!

Houston, we have a name

Don’t you all have any better things to do? 55 comments on a Saturday, naming a dinghy for SWEET PEA. It had me belly whacking all day. Some were inspired, okay all were great. I mean that, I have been in the ad world so long, and this was a great creative session. We did have some funny jewels though for sure. HA-PEA is brilliant, SPLIT PEA, PROSTRATE cracked me up but made the Boatress snarl. SUZ-PEA is great, PEA NUT.. RESCUE PEA, Lil PEA,  and PEA WEE.

Let’s get her home

What could go wrong?

That was kinda easy

And BAM, Her name will be on the transom above SWEET PEA, so how they go together is part of the idea. We do have a winner, and several folks share in the glory, but Jeffery was first with. PEA – WEE

PEA-WEE is ready for Adventures!

I need to adjust the cradle and tuck it aft a bit. Looks like a sail boat on top of Sweet Pea. Also you can now see how the brite work trim looks.


Thanks to all of you that took part in this, and even more thanks for one more day of milking a one day story into three! Stay tuned this week, we have some cool help needed boat stuff. A odd ball Yellow Jacket, XK European delivered boat, and an amazing 1935 Port Carling Sea Bird.

    You forgot to put the engine on! With no oars, you are going to want the engine. Also, paint the name so you can read it when the Seagull is mounted.

    P.s brightwork trim looks great!

    That sounds better than Wee Pea. Now, do you stack that name on one side of the transom or space it across the width of the transom?

    Love the name and it will look great on Sweet Pea, unfortunately it does conjure up one unfortunate image.

    I vote across the width of the transom.
