Is Boaty McBoatface really happening?
We can only dream after it topped a poll of names suggested for a new ship. Voting closed yesterday night and the awesome name got 124,109 votes. This was nearly 100,000 more votes than Poppy-Mai, which came in second with 34,245.
But Boaty McBoatface fans shouldn’t start celebrating yet. The Natural Environment Research Council has the last say on what the vessel is called and we can’t imagine it naming its new pride and joy Boaty. But it could have been worse. Other people suggested It’s Flippin Cold Here and Usain Boat as potential names.
Can you think of any other cool names for a million dollar ship?
