These were the funniest names and the saltiest boat puns we’ve come across out on the water near our port in southern California. If you’re looking for more boating humor, then there’s a few other good spots on the internet highway. The Wooden Boat forum has a long thread going – where lots of folks enter in their favorite boat jokes. Here’s a link to that page on the forum.

This is an excerpt from one of my favorite lines from that forum.

A young skipper is contemplating his life at Sea. He looks over at his first mate and says, “You know, when its my time to go…I want to die peacefully in my sea bunk with a glass of bourbon, just like my grandfather – the great Sea Captain.”

The young skipper paused to reflect.

“I don’t want to die screaming in terror, like granpa’s passengers.”

Ok, well you can see I have dark taste in my sea-faring jokes…
