Deciding on a new boat brings up the next question … a name. We’ve had our list for quite a while and came up with a new one this morning: The Pearl. This is just a rough sketch our son drew during breakfast on a scrap piece of paper. We’ll work from this for a graphic for the hulls. Why “The Pearl”? Johnny Deep’s famous line, “It’s The Pearl“, John Steinbeck’s novel, the graphic possibilities of the 2 halves of an oyster shell & it will even fit on the limited area of the sugar scoop transom steps.
