    Default Going Merry or SS Forward?

    I've been re-reading One Piece, and in some of the chapters their ship is referred to as S.S. Forward; I always thought it was Going Merry. Is there an explaination for this?
    I told him once or twice; to stop playin' cards, and shootin' dice.... he's in the jailhouse now

    Is it in random chapters that you get this? It could be a translator's preference.

    They called it "SS Forward" once it got wings. The moment the wings were gone (When that lil spirit guy fixed it to not having wings anymore), they reverted to calling it "Going Merry" again. I just read the whole story again recently and noticed they only called it SS Forward in the Sky Piea Arc and mostly during the time when they were on Sky Island.

    I can answer this. the suffix -go means that the name is reffering to a ship. So it's like USS at the front of an american ship. It's name is Going Merry, and the -go means it's talking about the ship. Does that make sense?

    Oh, thanks. Makes a lot of sense now. That and I was listening to "Caravel Farewell".

    Could you send it to me? No one on any other forum seems to have it (not even APforums *shockgasp*) And it's ticking me off.
