<< The stern
has the outboard, outboard braket and the boarding ladder, not much room
left for a baot name. So this leaves the port and starboard sides. Where do
it go? >>


You are right. The stern is cluttered. You can put the lettering on both
sides of the boat. That is what I have done as well as many others. Of
course, it is twice as expensive, because hopefully your boat has two sides.
I kind of had to do that because if you were to make the lettering small
enough to put "Lollipop" across the stern, you'd need a magnifying glass to
read it. It looks pretty cool on the sides.

By the bye, have you considered, "Oh, Hi!" as a name? If the boat where a
little bigger and a lot faster, you could call her, "Oh, Hi--Bye Bye," but
that would take up the entire boat side. Of course, if you are a child of
the 60's, as many of us are, you could call her, "Ohhh High." With a home
port such as Ojai, the possibilities are endless. You will find that naming
a boat is far more difficult than naming a baby or a dog. The boat will
probably and hopefully be with you a lot longer.

So, why did I pick, "Lollipop?" A friend and I had primed the thought pumps
with about a magnum of sake and a wonderful evening when we began singing,
"On the good ship Lollipop, it's a short trip to the candy shop" Now you
know--the rest of the story.
