Whats in a name?

We love the name Terrapin because it has multiple important meanings for us.  A terrapin is one of several small species of aquatic turtles living in fresh or brackish water, but  the  name is now commonly used to describe turtles in general in the English language.  Sea turtles have become one of our favorite marine animals and we have snorkled with  them extensively in the Caribbean.  The other important meaning for us is that the dancing turtles is an iconic image from the Grateful Dead album Terrapin Station.   We are unabashed Dead Heads.  Laura plays the keyboard and I play guitar and we love playing Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia music. So, Terrapin was the logical name for our new PDQ 32 catamaran.
