    Default Strange request? Help me name my boat!

    Hi everyone,

    This might be an unusual thread. I'm building a narrowboat for the english canals and have the very difficult and important task of finding a name for the new love of my life.

    Traditionally, there are no restrictions on how to name a narrowboat. Places, historical characters, mythical characters, male or female names....anything goes.

    For many years we have been lovers of Thailand and all things Thai, so there's no doubt that the name must be Thai. We have a few possible names in line already, the main runners are Sirindhorn, Chao Phraya and Sunanda.

    Any other ideas would be appreciated, and if there's a story behind the name or a link to water or boats all the better. I'm hoping that our Thai friends can help us out with this one!

    Please.....suggest away!

    Goiridh.

    There's a small yacht at Marchwood Sailing Club, Southampton, called "Pai Nai". I always liked that.

    I think Harvey has nearly got it.

    Cut-Thai Sark would sound better, and as 'cut' is a slang word canal, it seems quite apt.

    Here's another possible.

    "The Suphannahongse". This is the name of the Royal State Barge on which the king travels during the barge procession on the Chao Praya River in Bangkok. These barges have a 700 year history.

    Brilliant! If I acquire another boat, that will be a favourite.
    The Thai script as well as its English translation would look superb on a canal boat, and be a real talking point in the locks......

    Thanks for all of those suggestions, they're really appreciated. Thankfully for me 'Thaitanic' is already taken.

    But 'Chonlamak', now I really like that one, could be a serious runner! What about the actual pronounciation though?

    I had thought about 'Suphannahongse' as the background makes sense, but I think the cost of signwriting this one would be massive and I might neet to add a few extra feet to the boat length!

    Keep them coming!!

    Cool errr and what for the owners

    i assume the owners will be described on the side in Roses and Castle design or will it be Bougainvillea etc. Also, sorry to have missed the point but names should be prefixed "nb" ??.

    ps I take it the engine will be under the deck as apposed to being in a cradle up top.
