The Maritime Union didn't name it themselves because they don't get the chance. The transit system management or an out side PR group comes in then thinks it's cool, hip, trendy to get social media involved. That's the real problem. Pick five to six agreed upon names, present those to the public and allow only those to be voted on. Problem solved.

LOL, I think it's awesome. It's just a ferry. It's not like it's a warship or anything.

Speaking of warships, I love the old British warship names:

  • Dreadnought
  • Superb
  • Vanguard
  • Neptune
  • Orion
  • Conqueror
  • Centurion
  • Warspite
  • Valiant
  • Revenge
  • Resolution

  • etc.

    Maritime Union of Australia Sydney branch assistant secretary Paul Garrett said ferry staff would boycott the new vessel, which is due to start service on November 26, saying the name was an “insult” that will last for decades.

    “Members don’t want to crew the vessel,” he said. “It’s an insult to the integrity and heritage of Sydney Ferries, it undermines the professionalism and pride of the fleet.

    “This is not a five-minute internet sensation — this name has to be around for 20, 30, 40 years. This vessel will be left alongside the wharf until further notice.”

    Mr Garrett said maritime staff would only crew the vessel if it was renamed.

    There's an easy and fool-proof way to tell if anything related conservative/right-wing/Republican politics is true or not. If anyone calls it "fake news", you can be sure it's the solid truth.
