Launching 2 Nordic Explorers

Why launch one when you can launch two Nordic Explorers at once?

This is what you should do. Make a fuss of your boat. Have a celebration. The standard script is: "I name this boat Nordic Explorer. May God bless her and all who scull in her."

Then pour some bubbly over the bow (leaving enough for your friends & family). This task should always be undertaken by a lady. I had a retired friend, Sue Corbin, lined up to do the honours but then a former girlfriend, Helen Marriott, was cycling by and I managed to persuade her to Christen one of the boats.

Don't attempt to smash the bottle on the boat! She is not a ship.
