Plunger (i'm a plumber)

My father has had boats through my earlier years. Though all of them were classic wooden sail boats they have all had the same name. I carried that name over to my boat and it fits well. Being a flats boat and how you sneak around real quiet and stuff. "WHISPER"

NEVER name your boat after a woman! If something doesn't work out your stuck. Bad luck to rename a boat!

Why not just use your handle here... I don't know if this is what you were going for with "plumbertuck", but how about "plumb-tuckered"- meaning really tired, right. And you should be after all the plumbing and sanding.

Another way is to make two lists of words that you like, and then draw lines connecting different combinations until you find one that works.
