The boat that needed a name in Britain was left to a vote and the overwhelming vote went for the name Boaty McBoatface. Awesome. Well, the actual ship won’t be named that after all. The name that was chosen is Royal Research Ship Sir David Attenborough after the renowned naturalist and broadcaster. Doesn’t quite have the same ring to it does it!
All hope isn’t lost for Boaty McBoatface though, one of the one of the vessel’s sub-sea remotely operated vehicles will adopt that name! Yay!
