Boatmad.com or........

What are your thoughts on having a new name for this web site?

I just happen to have a few other domain names up my sleeve so to speak, and on reflection, i'm not certain that Boatmad was the correct choice.

so, (and this is just an idea at this stage) how about it becoming Proprider.com?

I personally think it's a little more appropriate for a performance boating website.

All your thoughts please!

If I were to do it, boatmad and Proprider domains would both point to the same site, so Boatmad wouldn't be lost, at least not in the short term.

And if Propriderholidays.com were to pop up, i'd go mad!

Ok, my thoughts basically are that 'boatmad' is a bit of a generic name, ie, it could even be a website for steel narrowboats (mebbe another JK site), where as 'Proprider' sounds way more performance orientated.

I can also see a more interesting logo cumin from it.

Isn't "proprider" a generic term for a particular type of boat/Hull form..?
