Wow, I am overwhelmed, what a lot of great responses…
I did consider the Endurance, but it is a bit too either obvious or cheesy… I never considered calling her The Fram. It’s a great idea (and I have considered getting a small cannon!), it is perhaps a little dull.
Amazing to think that there are so many Seldom Seen connections, even without the play on words that my boats past owners added. Sadly I don’t think she was owned Margaret Cornish Ridout… The boat has already had her name changed once, and a good job too as she was originally called Southern Comfort (apologies to anybody who has a boat of this name).
Having strong connections to NW Scotland, and been a Yorkshire man, Great Northern is a great name, as is Aqua Regia.
The James Caird would also be good, I toyed with other famous boats…Gypsy Moth and Mischief (Tillman’s Boat).
Two boat name I don’t think I will chose are Margoletta or Pterodactyl!
She is by the way, a 45’ traditional narrow boat. She was built in 1976 and for those who know about narrowboats, she is a Hancock and Lane Norseman… something of a classic.
I will ask about Terry Whitaker…
Too many great answers and options!!
