Our yacht is named "HyLyte" (in honor of our daughter Hylynn, who has been the "highlight" of our family). Our dinghy is named "FlashLyte" for (with a 15hp outboard on only a 3.4m dinghy) obvious reasons. In the spirit of the thing, my [much] better half's "vanity plate", on her truck, reads "StreetLyt" and our Escape Rhumba sailing dinghy--which we sail in the evenings, after work during the summer--is named. of course, "TwiLyte".

And with that, I bid you all "Good Nite"

I'm curious about this myth of nameing your dinkhy some name other then your boat, to confuse thiefs about when you're away from your boat. Where did it start?

I bet that any thief with even of a modest amount of intelligence could motor by your boat and realize that the absence of a dinkhy could mean that everyone had gone ashore.

seeing as I just read about a burglar who left his Wallet (with Id )in his victims house, one starts to question the combination of thievery and intelligence.

Since our boat is named SeaView if we named our dinghy "flying sub" or "Flying Tub", think anyone would get it?

Back in the 80s I was working for a small sea-plane "airline" in the US Virgin Islands called "Sea-Jet"

I thought about naming my dinghy "Sea-Pet", but my (ex) wife thought it sounded really sexist and forbid it....

We had a skiff for years that we frequently used to scope out potential areas for fishing (before we bothered to bring the big boat out). Quite often for halibut --. The dinghy's unofficial name was the "Butt Probe".
