Am considering putting a name on the bow of my H Tiger. Any thoughts on letter size, font, colour, etc. Pics would be excellent.

Will be called Dualite (with an accent over the e [French])

I put the name of out boat on the side-transoms. I used the lettering that we used for the CF Numbers on the bow (we are in CA).

Here is the picture of the transom while sailing in Santa Barbara:

I was thinking FERAL CAT

fe·ral - adj. Existing in a wild or untamed state.
Having returned to an untamed state from domestication.
Of or suggestive of a wild animal; savage: a feral grin.

If the shoe fits.........

Has any else seen this name out there? I'd hate to be un-original.

rwehuman:

If I were you I would not antagonize my boat with a name that it should try to live up to. If you think that the boat is a handful that name would put the icing on the cake. I would try to find a more docile name. How about "Nice Kitty?"

Later,
Dan

considering the potential for great success (or falure) on hobie cats i think the most fitting name i have seen was "Catastrophic"

I had a guy who does vinyl lettering make up my design for my Hobie Holder MKII --

Guess you cat guys have a little less "real estate" onto which to put a graphic seeing as a twin-hull has no stern to speak of, huh?
