Re: Any special Christening or Ritual for launching a "new" sailboat?

In Hawaii you have to hire a Kahuna (Witch doctor - at least 300 bucks) to bless the boat and pay for a party with booze and pupu (party food) for all the bar flies at the club or you will surely sink and die going out the channel on your first voyage. We have 15 foot tiger sharks so your body will not be recovered.
