Naming rites

I was surprised to see a tour boat on the Chicago River yesterday named “Summer of George.” Not a very boaty name, is it?
A perfume, maybe, or even a band. But a boat?

A little stroll over to Google revealed that it’s the title of a Seinfeld episode. OK. Other unboaty Seinfeld episode names include “The Nose Job,” “The Andrea Doria” (actually a good boat name, unless you want anyone to pay to get aboard) and “The Hot Tub.”

Boatiest episode name? “The Serenity Now.” And, not surprisingly, there are loads of boats with just that name.
