What I like about the name is the interactivity, as it were. The cottage owner was a keen wind surfer, so he would only be reading the name when there was no wind, otherwise he’d be out on the lake.

That and the absence of a question mark, which would be wrong in a place name.

My guess is the letters were cut with a manual jig saw.

I also like the way the letters are arranged on a wavy baseline, or have perhaps been blown by the wind, although if there is no wind they should perhaps be becalmed!
