Shark 007

The naming of "007"

Our boat is one of the earliest Sharks around, and it was built around 1960. It carries sail number 7, so naming it "007" seemed like the natural thing to do. However, because of its age, I also gave some consideration to calling it "Jurassic Shark". But this idea was vetoed by my wife, kids, and friends, so we stuck with the original idea of calling it "007" (as in licence to maim and kill - got it! :-) ).
