Difficult decision

Have to decide on a number plate for another car that I just bought.

First two below I already have and the third one is on my daughter's car on a South Carolina plate. Need help deciding between pics 4 and 5.

I'm for pic 5 as well. However I think some variation on WANKER, WANKR etc would be equally if not more fun. Very few of your countrymen would get it.

Thought about a derivation of 'wanker' but it's probably a bit strong and the term in not completely unknown here. I also considered "EWETOSR" but I didn't want to be accused of being a Welshman.

Done

Now for the next project. Number plate for the boat trailer. Can use up to seven letters and or numbers and include a space if wanted. If it helps, the boat is a 1980 Excalibur 24 and the engine a newly built bored and stroked 454 (now 496) bbc.

Suggestions welcomed.

Hi Jon, I'm muddling through.

Didn't use the boats at all last season although the Chris Craft duly went in the water in June and came out in November, unused save for me starting the engines every week or so.

Went for a test run on the Excalibur at the beginning of December and it looks like it's finally ready. Then again I've said that before. Didn't even get it wet last season. Summer came and went but there was just too much going on which precluded any thoughts of boating.

Looking forward to getting some use out of it this year though. We'll see........
