I have been asked many times now about my board name, and I'm sure I'm not the only one this happens too.
What is your board name, and how did it come about? I'll start
In the summer of 2007, I had just sold my Chevrolet dealership and bought a boat with the intention of refurbishing it in my now “free time” and towing it down to Belize.
I picked it up from the Texas gulf coast and trailered it back 1500 miles to Utah, where I intended to use it for a while on lake Powell before heading down that spring to San Pedro.
The total length was almost 40 feet from trailer hitch to propellers and it was 10'8” wide with a special permit needed to travel on the interstate.
As I stood at the wheel with Jerry Jeff Walkers Gringo in Belize playing on the stereo, Mrs Pug who was merely Jane at the time told me I looked like Captain Pugwash, an incompetent cartoon pirate from English TV in the 60's.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTfX7EqY13I&NR=1
Shortly afterwards, I logged on for the first time, and no longer wanting to be “Moabchevy” or “Redlodgehevy” I became Pugwash.
Needless to say the boat has long gone, as towing that through Mexico would have been way more trouble than it was worth, but the name has stuck
How about some of the rest of you?
