That's really looking something now, Colin. So much better than a standard neptune.

Are you going to drill some holes in the foot plates you've added, else you may get some trapped air underneath them.

Needs some oxygen bottles slung on each side, and perhaps a slogan or something- Steven's Oceanic Diver sounds possible, or '50D' for short!

I did consider 'Colin's Underwater Nautical Treat', but that will get me thrown off the forum!

How about 'Pavati I'. A native American name which means 'clear water'.

Or perhaps 'Praneetha I' which is an Indian name meaning 'pure water'.

I looked for names beginning with 'P' to emphasize the Perry boat connection.

Are you planning on making something to cover the control linkages aft?

How about an SOS buoy like this one-
