I wonder about " TOBASCO "
I was looking @ the pictures of his new Montauk today and the thought crossed my mind, Why Tobasco?.
It is a catchy handle but, Is he a Chef maybe in a Tex-Mex resturaunt?
Grows hot peppers?
Likes tobasco sauce more then most?
Owns the Tabasco sauce company?
Or maybe he has a " hot & spicy personalty or sex drive ! LOL
Hey Mr. Tobasco how'd you think yhat one up, please?

Mine is a nickname going back to high school, mixing references to a substandard Minnesota Viking who had the same last name as me and a character from an equally bad 70's movie. I added the first initials from my first and middle names to the beginning because for some reason Badfish is a fairly common nickname in cyberspace.

The Mexican place I frequented by my old place in San Diego made shrimp burritos, and it is probably the best thing you could ever stuff down your throat. (An In-N-Out burger would offer serious competition though.) When I go back there, I sometimes eat them for breakfast. At least 15-20 large, succulent shrimp (maybe 21-25's), boiled to perfection, together with a creamy white mystery sauce, fresh salsa (with freshly cut cilantro), and a little hot sauce tightly bundled in a fresh warmed tortilla. All this enjoyment for only $3.45. Much cheaper than a boat.

I guess they're somewhat of an obsession now......in search of a quasi-permanent email address, I registered the shrimpburrito.com domain.

It was my CB "handle". Back in the '70's or '80's or whenever that was, my friends and family all got into the CB craze for our cars and trucks, and we had CB's on our boats in the North Channel as well. (We'd occasionally get bounced signals out in the middle of the North Channel from Germany, Mexico, etc. on our CB!)

Anyway, I had to choose a handle, and I had already developed an enjoyment of the food and ambience of New Orleans, and so between the thoughts of the nickname of past New Orleans Mayor and Governor of Louisianna Huey Long, and a modest inside joke about Amos 'n Andy, I settled on "kingfish", and just held on to it when I graduated to VHF radio and ultimately, ContinuousWave.

An area in Gloucester,Ma by the Annisquam River which was once a tidel marsh.Clammers at the time used flat bottom boats to get to the clam beds at the end of the river. They would "fudge" their boats using long poles,and that is the place where it became too shallow to "fudge". Hence the area was called "Done Fudgin" By the way, there is now a canal that now connects Gloucester harbor thru to Ipswich Bay to the north.

As most of you probably suspected "squernt" is not a word, it was made up by me and a buddy in the military and it can be used as a noun, adj, verb, etc., whatever you want to use if for just stick it in a sentence somewhere. Our shop chief hated the use of profanity so we just thought up this word to use in the place of. It was very humorous at the time and it has always stuck with me as an internet name.

I'm curious about the handle "newboater." In the Dogs on Boats thread, newboater said that their Scottish Terrier (who has lived aboard their sailboat since she was 8 months old) has close to 4,000 miles at sea under her collar. I assume that newboater has more miles at sea than the dog has. If newboater is new to boating, where does that put the rest of us?

Everyone usually treats a "newboater" with a little more kindness and forgiveness when he asks a stupid question. Maybe they are a little more encouraging too when he is having trouble. When we were about to buy our 13' I wanted to get some opinions on what to look for, and afterwards how to fix our ailing 40hp motor. I thought I might get more help using something like "newboater".

I thought about changing it to "sailboater", but I was afraid people wouldn’t take me seriously. (Not that anyone does)

My other choice would be Zbigman. It was a nickname and license plate of mine when I was a hardcore bicycle racer. It was too close the already taken "bigshot", and it didn't portray the image I was looking for.

Yes, Molly our Scotty dog has 4000nm on a sailboat under her collar. I've got a few more, but when it comes to Whalers, I'm still a "newboater".

It's my boat's unofficial name. When the license plate on the back of the car read "WHERES", it was only appropriate that the thing that went behind the car was "WHERE2".

With a name like Mark Wendt (pronounced "went"), all my college friends always said the word "Where?" after they said my name. So, after realizing that I couldn't get away from the nickname, I ran with it and slapped a custom plate on the back of my car that said "WHERES florida". ("Florida" was at the bottom in little letters with "WHERES" above it). It's also a bit of satire since I'm a Professional Surveyor & Mapper.

Got it from a bowling team mate years ago. My initials are T. P., and my dad's are T.E.

We bowled together so our names went on the telescore as initials instead of two Tom's.

One of the opposing team one night asked what TP stood for, and another guy on our team said TightPenny, and the name stuck. Oh Yeah, he labeled my dad as Tight Er.

Salmon because in my opinion that is my favorite fish out here in the Pacific (can't make lox out of Albacore), and Tub because that is what my dad calls my boat, he says that if you remove the console, it looks like a huge bath tub. Frankly I think that lovely trait is more befitting a Carolina Skiff.

Back in the late 70's, with a brand new Ph. D. in pure mathematics, I went to work at a defense electronics company. I ended up doing a lot of diagnoses on boxes that didn't work right. When I started to tell the engineers how to fix them--and the fixes worked--they started calling me Dr. T.

Fast forward to '96. I left the defense industry to move to the cable TV industry. I figured that I had finally gotten rid of the nickname since no one in the industry knew about my previous life. The SECOND day on the job, our VP in charge of press relations yelled down the hall at me, "Hey, Dt. T, what do you think about ......"

I gave up and accepted it as being inevitable.

Well when I first joined the board, my user name said it all. I think the name was only good for about 24 hours or so. Saw an ad in the paper that weekend for one located in a nearby resort area. Went with a buddy who lives boats 24/7. The whaler was nothing like advertised-The trailer was rotting in many places, the motor completly siezed and the poor whaler looked like hell even for a 1972 model. My buddy took me aside and said "don't touch it, lets go- I want to go down the road as I thought I saw something in the corner of my eye when we were turning." We left and sure enough there was a like new whaler about 5 blocks away off from the road. It had not be advertised in the paper. I loved it at first site but my buddy wanted to talk with the owner first as it seemed to be too good of a price. After talking with him , he was conviced that it was both a good and legit deal. Sure glad my buddy saw it in the corner of his eye!

I got this nickname while in high school. I was in an arguement with a classmate in a history class, when he said that I was just a stupid caveman (funny coming from a guy with a jutting forehead and a distinct uni-brow). Several other students heard this and thought that they would enjoy calling me "Caveman". One of my friends heard them calling me this and he started calling me "Captain Caveman". Pretty soon, my last name got added to the mix and it became "Captain Caceman". A little longer, and everybody was calling me "Caceman".

Amusingly, nobody called my younger brother Caceman until I graduated. Then, he inherited the nickname.

OK, I will admit the name WhalerAce is not that original, although my nickname is Ace and we have a Whaler (#3).

Our boat name is Her (Whale) Lure. Kinda stole part of it from Larry (lhg), but we have a sketch of a Whale between the "Her" and the "Lure". Joke was that I told Joyce that I would marry her if she bought me a new Whaler, so that became "her lure" to me. And she did buy the boat! (and trailer). All I had to do then was marry her.

Oh well, as Clark says, "Happy Whalin'...."

Tomol (my boat's name) was the name the local native Americans, the Chumash, gave their canoes. They were reputedly the only north American native peoples to use planked canoes, wbich they used extensively around our islands here in Southern California. They caulked them, I'm told, with tar that naturally washes up on the beaches here.

The spirit of applying an advanced design to an old concept seemed to parallel the development of a certain boat manufacturer we all know.

Bigshot..FILLRKILL could be a great name for a boat. If someday I trade the Montauk in on an Outrage 21 I may use it. (with your permission) Strong choice! Need any bonds?~mw

2001 was when I stumbled onto this site after buying my first and only whaler in the fall of 2000.
"Toad" is what happens to our whaler.
Our 15' gets tugged along at 7Kn behind our Grand Banks 32 from destination to destination...

boat name is ballbuster. no need to explain the reason for the name. try a 21' outrage is a 3 foot chop on delaware bay with a 20 knot wind in you face. just not approperate for a username.

Took Mom and our 2 year old daughter to the coast one weekend with my regular fishing group. Girls were afraid to run the inlet so we stayed inside and played all weekend while the guys fished. My buddies gave regular fishing reports via VHF - needling the 'babysitter'

I live in San Diego and frequently go to Baja California. My whaler has more hours in the Sea of Cortez than here in the states. I'am the guy who runs what we do on the trips so my friends call me Chief. (also there was already a Chris J)
Adios

Tried to sign up on eBay several years ago with the name of Whalerman because I have owned more then one Whaler. The name had already been taken so I chose, whalersman....
I am now looking for another Whaler to replace the one I have. I think I have
2ft iTis.... Maybe I will name my next boat just that.... 2ft iTis

He said that I would always want to go boating no matter how rough the seas were.
