Tenders in Qld have to be named : "Tender to ............" Otherwise they need to be registered.

one dinghy/mothership combo I saw was Bedouin/Camel dung.

Now - does anyone know if Elvis was a sailor?

He was in a movie where he played a fishing boat captian and lived on a sailboat. Seems like he was a sailor in a few movies.

Our last boat was named Agapee (greek), our teen aged girls thought it was funny to name our dingy Agapoo....

I have a 7.5 ft. Livingston I bought in Seattle. The Dink was named "Crumb" which I retained. i think the Mothership was called "Bread & Butter"

Our dink's name is informal... Our westies are named Belle and Beau, but referred to as BelliBo since they are always together. The dink is now called BelliBoat... and they love getting in it to do some shore side bellibiz... if you get my drift.

Never got into naming the dinghy. Maybe if my better half wants to name it something we will, but to me it's just "the dinghy". Our life jackets and harnesses have our ship's name on them.

You should make the outboard and dinghy totally un-stealable though. Beyond locking it up, spray paint it bright pink with yellow spots or something. If you have a wood transom, get your Dremmel with router kit and write the registration number in or something of that sort.

Use big chains, big locks, and keep it away from the jerk at the dinghy dock with a cable full of meat cutters.

Heading out of the Salt Pond at Block Island a few years ago, the dingy being dragged by the boat in front of us was "W8 4 Me" I thought it was cute.

A dinghy needs a name to have mana. A name gives it life and seperates it from other dinghies. If you want your dinghy to carry you safely and reliably across the waters then you must give it a name. Otherwise it's just a dinghy.

While cruising around northern Vancouver Island a few years ago we met some folks on a boat named "Potato Caboose" hailing from Boise, Idaho. Their dinghy was named "Tator Tot". We understand they have since moved to Shilshole Marina in Seattle.

Our big boat is "Yachtsman's Dream" and we will soon be labeling our dinghy as "Yachtsman's Dinghy" as compromise between having a name that ties it directly to the mother boat and having one so far removed that no one can make the connection.

See my post NW Cat Sailor Introduction in the Meets & Greets section for the story behind the name.

Go sailing now. Life is too short not to enjoy it.

Named the dinghy "Deep Doo Doo" as that is usually what I am in when it comes around time to use it.
