    I have owned W1162 for well over 30 years and it has always been refered to as “The Wayfarer”. There comes a time, brought on by the purchase of a VHF radio, when the old boat needs a name. With a surname of Mellor then Mellordrama, or Mel O’drama as sugested by Glyn Fox is great for a racing boat but not the best one to use on the radio! Have you got any sugestions? Yes I will take any. Launch date for the re-decked boat is Easter so enter the poll or give me a name soon please.

    Mine is always known as “33”, or if people really want to annoy me “John Parker’s boat” (even after 4 years as my boat)

    She does have a name but known only to a very few – mainly because of the first paragraph above. No-one is interested and not many people ever see the transom of my boat; they are usually looking backwards at the bows of 33, instead of forwards to the stern of her 😀

    Side issue – best boat name ever was (I think) a lark “Sailbad the Sinner”

    FWIW there is already a Wayfarer called “Wizzard” (OK, different spelling)!

    What about “It’s Mellor’s”! or ” ‘s Mellor’s ” for short?

    How about “Mela”, Greek for honey?
