A Dory. Not OUR Dory!

Annapolis Mayor, Michael Pantelides has risked the wrath of the Internet by announcing a contest to name the new City Dory.  Now for those who are not familiar with boats–a Dory is a small rowboat—not a yacht! And I suspect it may be the one the Mayor helped to build at Chesapeake Light Craft a few years back. But sometimes the will of the people can go awry–right Boaty McBoatface?

So, Internet people of Annapolis–please don’t let me down.  Please submit your best names for the City Dory using the hashtag #AnnapolisCityBoat on Twitter and Facebook and we will keep an eye out for some of the best!  There will be prizes!

Viva Boaty McBoatface!
