Naming the ark

We’ve been having a lukewarm discussion (we never have heated discussions) on what to name our new huge road beast.

Traditionally you can name a new ship the same as an old ship as an honor. Usually the old ship is decommissioned and the new ship is christened; hence the first USS Enterprise was a 1780’s Navy schooner and the current Big E was recently retired. There have of course been exceptions. The original Miss Lueffie hasn’t been decommissioned so reusing that name isn’t quite right.

Ark Royal is still in use; has been continously since Henry VIII’s time. So that’s out. How about “The Queen’s Barge?”

Why am I not surprised that Mom loves it….
