Re: New boat - same old boat name?

In Canada you either register your boat or licence you boat, I believe only one boat of that name if registered, not so if licensed.

Re: New boat - same old boat name?

Please, just don't name it "Carpe Diem", sailing into Boston Harbor once and hailed a friends boat called Carpe Diem, I got about 5 returns, apparently there's a few lawyers with boats there, or at least Ivy League grads who actually took Latin.
Go with your original name, at least you won't see 5 others with the same name.

LOL we have a carpe at our marina, hope he isn't a lawyer because he can't spell! Yes he got it wrong in big letters across the back of a cabin cruiser.

Re: New boat - same old boat name?

How many names can there be? Duplicates seem inevitable.

Re: New boat - same old boat name?

I prefer to use the boat's original name (guess I'm a little superstitious) but sometimes a previous name is so bad you can't help it. Not the case with my Cat 27 that has carried the name Zanadu (with a Z) since its first owner. The name was painted on the side and I very much like the name. The other boat I sail was never named (lucky for me). So I used the name of my last boat and added to it, Another Adventure Too!

Re: New boat - same old boat name?

Good luck with this task. This is a good site with 10,000 boat names to see what boat names are popular. http://10000boatnames.com

I've had two that I was asked not to change the name of passed on from the original owner. Works for me.

Re: New boat - same old boat name?

I guess I'm too superstitious; I won't even buy a boat that's been renamed at some point...

Whatever name is in Neptune or Poseidon's log - that's the name she'll have.

we went through this last year .Our boat in Canada has a licence and is named Delphine. When we bought the boat down south we wanted to register it Canadian .In Canada you can only have one of each name in the Country ,and since we did not want numbers or to to fiddle the spelling, it was hard to get what we wanted. As a matter of interest I looked up the name we we were already using and it was available . Now we have two boats with the same name. I nic named them north and south

Given that the average English speaker has a vocabulary of maybe 30,000 words, if you restrict it to just names of 1 or 2 english words, there are still potentially 900,030,000 names

I'll buy the math. since I have forgotten how to do permutations. It's a stretch that some words or combinations would be considered.
