There's worse. Just imagine having to ring up to book a passage through a lock and when they ask the name of the boat having to say Our Dream. It would stick in my throat I'm afraid. Then we recently saw Our Destiny. Is it just me, or is that wearing your heart on your sleeve a bit too much?
There are some we find OK, such as Indigo Dream, or (at a pinch, because written in a jolly font) Wildest Dreams.
Well, I shouldn't criticise. People can call their boats what they like I suppose. Personally I like simple names. Some I have seen that I really like are fish names like Dace or Bream, and the old working boat names like Badsey (the village where I was born), or Stour shown below, and Bison.
We passed a wonderful tug style Bison for sale in Milton Keynes. This 57 footer was originally built by Yorkshire boatbuilders Sagar Marine in who built their last narrowboat in 1998 and now specialise in luxury Dutch barges. The engine is listed by Jim Shead as 22BHP which means it might be an old slow revver. Chug chug.
That would be something like my dream boat. I'm quite sure it would be beyond our means or I'd be queueing up to buy it. Externally it looks immaculate.
