Finally, she gets a name: "Gabrielle", the Battling Bard of Potidaea

Renee O'Connor as Gabrielle, in Xena: Warrior Princess
You know those car bumper stickers?  "My Other Car is a Mercedes"?
The transom sticker on this boat could be: "Our Other Boat is an X-Yacht".....
And she's called Xena.
And in "Xena: Warrior Princess" the TV series, Xena's close friend, confidant and co-warrior is Gabrielle. (Wikipedia: "She is referred to by fans as the Battling Bard of Potidaea")
So that's what we've decided for a name for our little Somes Sound 12 1/2:  Gabrielle.
It's taken a while to come up with a name, mainly because I wanted to wait until we had a "boat", that is, something that would actually float if put on water, and that's about now.
So: hi to Gabrielle.
