Signs - Boats

A couple of boats with interesting names 😉

For other signs from around the world please follow this link.

"Overdraft" seen at Matilda Bay in Perth

"Moet Ice" seen at from the Royal Perth Yacht Club


"Jumping Jack Flash" seen at Royal Perth Yacht Club

"Martigues" seen in the port of Martigues in the South of France

And this one, not a boat but goes well with the boats ...

The Boat House is actually a beach restaurant in Balmoral, Sydney

  3. We always seem to see boats with punning names, though I've not collected or taken photos of them. Nice idea to capture these.

    1. Not sure it's still that way but Perth had the highest number of boats per capita in the world. There are some very fancy boats in all of Perth's marinas.

    1. Naming things is difficult, or at least for me it is. Thanks Wren.

  10. "Jumping Jack Flash" is a beatiful boat, a great music and one of the funniest movies ever seen with Whoopi Goldberg!
    Happy Easter

  14. I need to give you a heads up as to what is going on in my life right now.

    For reasons I won't go into, I have been locked out of blogger. This is a devastating problem for me, especially since I am in the middle of my recycle campaign. However, I have set up a HOPEFULLY temporary blog to get me through until I can reclaim mine. Please tell everyone you know, and please visit me starting tomorrow (April 20) at:

    https://alteredbooksandmixedmedia.blogspot.com/

    Even if you don't normally visit me daily, I could use the support right now. Thank you and Happy Easter.
