Morphinity 2.0 Posted March 22, 2016 Share Posted March 22, 2016 Boaty McBoatface leading public vote to name new ?200m research vessel http://www.independent.co.uk/news/boaty-mcboatface-could-be-the-name-of-200m-research-vessel-after-public-vote-a6942551.html The official name of a new multi-million pound research vessel could be the RRS Boaty McBoatface after the internet was asked for its ideas. When the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) opened up suggestions to name their new ship, little could they have predicted what the frontrunner would be. Steaming ahead of its rivals, RRS Boaty McBoatface is outstripping the likes of Endeavour, Henry Worsley, David Attenborough, Falcon and many more offerings. Some other tongue-in-cheek submissions include It?s bloody cold here, Usain Bolt, Ice Ice Baby and Notthetitanic. I've been laughing like an idiot just thinking of a boat named "Boaty McBoatface." "Notthetitanic" is brilliant too. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
