    Default I have named the boat

    "COOEE TOO"

    To my friends above this name probably seems a little weird
    The meaning of cooee, is slang meaning

    call for greeting someone at a distance in the bush

    Cooee, not within : figuratively a long way away miles away from where you should be.

    A call used to find (locate) someone lost in the bush.

    often yelled in hilly country playing with echo (fun)

    Well, at least they'll "get it" down under! Still floating? Great!

    I'm sure it's only right not to Americanize the name like we wanted to. Your name works well.

    I hope you changed your mind on selling it Vin. I couldn't if it was mine.

    That name/call is really close to a call we have in Texas. It is:

    "SOOEE"

    The farmers use this call to call their pigs to dinner.
