What the %$@^

We've seen a lot of stupid boat names in our years on the water. Big power boats with names like Blue Chip and Mai Tai. There are the obvious double entendre boat names like Liquor Box, Sea-Deuce (we've seen Sea Deucer) and yes, even Wet Dream. But there is one boat that deserves dubious distinction: The Tartan 10 Tar Baby.

You gotta draw a line somewhere, and maybe that line is in the vicinity of naming a boat Tar Baby.

You're oh-so right with this one! BS names like that do nothing but reinforce the notion that sailing is an elitist sport...like lacrosse at Duke University.

Why do you assume that the name has racial implecations? What if the guy made his fortune selling tar to cigarette companies? OR, what if the bottom of the boat was tarred because it had leaks? If I were you, I'd give the rich, racist bastard the benefit of the doubt...

He owns an asphalt company. He is not racist by any means. How is sailing an elitist sport? I do not consider lacrosse an elitist sport. Its more where you are from.
