Default Ever have a boat named after you ? LOL

So this morning I get an e mail from my nephew Nathan. He has moved up from a 35' Formula to a 43 Nor Tech with 700's that he just bought out of Texas. Congratulations Nate. He wanted to know if it was OK with me, if he called the boat " BOB's MY UNCLE ". Too funny. I told him fine, but he will need to behave or people will be calling Uncle Bob and reporting on him. I will get some pics of the boat and post them. Next, will get him to join OSO and hope his screen name is not "Bob's My Uncle". LOL

I always wondered where the expression " Bob's your Uncle" came from and this is what Wikipedia says about it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob%27s_your_uncle

Had a secretary from Britain a few years back and she used that phrase all the time. Now I know where it came from!

I looked for in on urban dictionary and it was not listed... That is the first slang phrase I could not find there.

At least he didn't want to name it "Neal-N-Bob"

I'll watch for the pics.

I hope this is the boat - a 43 Nortech with 700's. I think it was owned by Jassman on here. Great boat, great price. Hope he uses it in good health.

Yep, it was Jeff's previous Nor Tech. That will be a great boat for my nephew.

Now he can go faster than " Uncle Bob " ..... but not nearly as far ! LOL Nate will bring it to Florida and do some runs with FMO. He also bought a condo on Marco Island a few months ago so will be seeing lots of him. Like his uncle he is a home builder in Canada as well.

Look forward to seeing you in Key West, Pat and do some catching up.

Bob
