I bought a nameless boat! The poor thing! :( No un-naming to do!

I made the board scratch proof. It should be OK. :)

I should try her sometime this week....I hope so!...

I cannot understand people so thoughtless they fail to give their boat a name. It is good that you bought her Michel, you are a true man of the sea and would never allow a boat to go through life unnamed, unloved, forlorn and embarrassed when other boats in the marina say to her "Hi, my name is Sanderscree, what's yours?" I have named every boat I have ever owned, starting with my first Styrofoam 11 foot board boat purchased sight unseen for $75.00. That was the Patty Ann. A boat is a living creature and as such deserves all the care, love devotion and yes a name you can give her

Excellent name Michel. Well done. Have you had a chance to sail Papou yet?

Yes Jacques! I was pleased by the way it moves in almost no wind at all! Now I will have to remember that she is a dinghy when the wind will pump up! ;)

(There is a short video just up your last post)

I think so. There is still some life in them and I don't race! ;)
