    Default Boat's done, need a name

    You guys are always a good source for laughs and idea's so what do you think I should name my new 17 Sport?

    things to consider:

    of course its aluminum
    Mercury power (2 stroke 2.5 l 240 HP)
    Steel skid plates, a true gravel bar hopper/rock basher
    Im favourable to song titles as boat names

    Idea's?????

    Its a Mercury Sportjet package, not something custom.
    Mercury makes the pump etc we just modify it a bit to make it faster and more durable for rocks etc They still sell them with 200 and 250 HP Optimax powerheads

    Its hard to get a pic of the whole setup when they are mounted in the boat but Ill see what I can do.

    I've blown up a couple of the 90hp variety. Had a great time doing it too!

    Good looking boat and it looks like a whole lot of fun. Good luck naming it!

    I really loved the name Bar Hopper but a customer, who admittedly did think of it, used that one on a recent Vette powered boat and I dont feel right about reusing a name like that.

    Its really ideal in many ways as we sure do skid over ALOT of gravel bars up here
