    Wow, not the boat, but that LICENSE PLATE IS WAY COOL!!!! (other than it being on a California vehicle..haha ) Think I will try for an Oregon version. I'm pretty sure that truck would tow that boat straight up I-5 to the rendezvous ?? Boats looking fantastic though.

    Looks good, Dave!

    Make sure the smaller nut on the prop shaft is up against the backside of the prop though, and the larger nut put on last. When the last nut is tightened against the first, it takes the load off the first and takes on the load itself.

    Good to have a nut checker on the forum.

    Big Shakespeare buff; for years I have hauled my kids over to the summer season at Shakespeare Santa Cruz, in Santa Cruz, CA. Oberon is a character in "A Midsummer Night's Dream," my kids' favorite comedy.

    Oberon's a male character, though, so the traditional pronoun for the boat is awkward . . .

    Oh creative, I like it. I have been trying to find a name for my 26 foot Glasply, I am thinking Minerva but we will see.

    The sky's pretty the limit, mate. It's all good.

    An interesting sidebar to boat naming is the use of the VHF. A friend's boat is named "Revelry," and hailing him on the radio is surprisingly difficult. Try saying "revelry" three times in fairly rapid succession.
