BOATY TOR­PE­DOED AGAIN

Daily Record - - NEWS -

A NEW ferry in Syd­ney Har­bour is to be chris­tened Ferry McFer­ry­face – af­ter Boaty McBoat­face was snubbed again.

Aus­tralian city’s se­cond voted for Boaty McBoat­face but New South Wales state of­fi­cials over­ruled. It’s the se­cond time Boaty has lost out. Last year, the name topped a a pub­lic vote to name a £200mil­lion Bri­tish po­lar re­search ship.

That ves­sel was named Sir David At­ten­bor­ough and one of its re­mote subs be­came Boaty McBoat­face.
