    Simply Bluenose= S/V Bluenose. Steam vessel = SS Trout. Motor vessel = M/V
    Trout. Nuclear powered = N/V Trout. Naval = HMCS, HMS, HMNS,HMAS USNS Trout.
    Mail ships used RMS Trout ages ago.

    Subject: Naming Ships
    
    
    I would like to throw out a question for the nautical minded masters out
    there.
    
    I am having a "discussion" regarding the naming convention for ships. I
    contend that a ship's name is never preceded by "the".  In otherwords, Nova
    Scotia's famous schooner "Bluenose" would not be referred to as "the
    Bluenose" but simply "Bluenose"
    
    Comments anyone?
