Name That Boat

March 26, 2008

By Jeff Merrill

That old saying that a picture is worth a thousand words has grown wings for us at PAE. What started out as a unique photo and turned into a silly contest for the amusement of the readers at actually bloomed into an unprecedented response from a hilarious and witty readership. When we posted the photo of Marty and Linda Ellison with their Nordhavn 55 Tenacious and custom GWEDUCK floating plane we thought maybe we'd get a handful of caption entries, never suspecting we would need to form a committee to act as selection jury for our impromptu contest.   Picking just one winner wasn't possible and with such a great variety of clever captions we struggled to select a top 10.  And so here are our top 10 captions. Special thanks to everyone who took a few minutes to contemplate the scene and share their humor. All of us at PAE are inspired by such a loyal and sharing web readership. Everyone who entered is a winner to us with special congratulations to our ten lucky winners who will soon be receiving their very own genuine NORDHAVN ball cap!
