Have a look at A90’s new listing, she’s now called Jenaka (Malay for poem) and has been subjected to much nomenclature.
BUT here’s an antidote to the ‘old wives tale’ – I bought ‘Lazzarella’ in 1980, going up from my 17′ Silhouette to a huge Leisure 22′ . Those were the days when even thinking of affording a 26 footer was purely delusional !
Now I knew that transmitting the vessel’s name phonetically to the Coastguard in a May Day call of such duration I would have perished !
But that ‘old wives tale’ – so I kept the name.
To wreck a boat in Poole Harbour is nigh on impossible – they all end up being craned off the sand untouched.
Lazzarella decided one night to leave her mooring, found not one storm water pipe, but two, at exactly the point where the pipes crossed each other to make an X .
At exactly the X cross point she settled and split longitudinally from stem to stern !
