Best boat names

Don't Panic, Cuyahoga River

What’s the best boat name in Lake Erie?

RocktheLake got about two dozen submissions in our first ever contest. We removed the dirty words and focused on our favorite puns. The result: nine pretty Erie-sistable boat names as finalists, from Cedar Point Marina to Erie, Pennsylvania. 

Boaters love puns — and double entendres. There was Male Minnowpause and Going Commando and Size Doesn’t Matter. Also lots to do with alcohol: Cirrhosis of the River.

I love the story behind your choices. Like Joseph Dzurinda, who named his boat, After you. “I tell those coming to the boat,’Easy to find, I named it after you.'”

There’s “Don’t Panic,” written upside down.
