Well, a short email exchange with my Uncle Norman and a brief discussion with Devy have convinced me that it's time to start figuring out a name for the boat. So far the leader is D-PORT-R, although Norm's RON-DEV-OO is an extremely close second.
Other names we've come up with are:
DE-RO-BOAT or RO-DE-BOAT (more suitable for our row boat than for this one)
RON-DEV-SKI or DEV-RON-SKI (already vetoed!)
