Jo and I bought our Mariner in 2001. We threw caution to the wind and renamed her Murre after the compact, slow flying but strong swimming sea birds that breed in our waters. A sort of penguin, Murres can be seen along the coast bobbing comfortably in the worst of weathers, and so seemed a fitting epithet for our tough little boat.
