    C'mom people, where are all the classic film buffs? 12 posts into a "famous boats from the movies" thread and nobody has mentioned the most famous boat of all (it's also the movie title) The African Queen?

    Oops, I guess I just did. [​IMG]

    Also, sticking with the theme - The Battleship Potemkin.

    You beat me to it Jeff.

    So I’ll add L’Atalante—and if that is a bit to obscure, there is the Nautilus.

    I have a fondness for Surprise the warship commanded by Capt. Jack Aubrey in Master and Commander

    How about "Cotton Blossom" from Showboat? Then you can sit around on the deck and sing "old man river".

    What part of the country do you live in? Will the boat be used on lakes, rivers, or the ocean?
