Re: Need Name Ideas

Friend of mine divorced his wife, Ruth, bought a boat and named it "Ruthless."
Another friend bought a boat instead of finishing his Doctorate and named it "Dissertation."
And of course, Walter Cronkite's boat was named "Assignment." He was often on assignment.

It is a fun exercise, a clever name.

My mother in law is a sweetheart. She really tries hard to get me gifts at Christmas and such that match my interests. It is hit (Stanley #4 handplane made in GB, circa 1950), and miss (some piece of crap 3 wheel bandsaw) but either way she doesn't just write a cheque. So I came up with "Wealthy Elsie" as a potential boat name to honour her. Her maiden name is Rich, and her first name is Elsie, though she hates it and goes by her second name. This one will probably get nixed as I don't think I want the word "Wealthy" on the side of my boat in a public marina.

Another contender is "semicolon". I leave it as an exercise for the reader to figure this one out.

Re: Need Name Ideas

If I ever buy a new boat (unlikely) I was going to name it Serendipity as it best describes what I feel is attractive about sailing (you set the course and see what you find). However, I wonder if the name has too many
syllables to be an effective boat name?

Often you hear on the radio calls for boats with really long names:

"Boat with too long a name, boat with too long a name, boat with too long a name this is concise, concise, concise"

I think an ideal boat name should have two or three words or syllables and be unique but not impossible to spell or say.

I agree. The personality of the boat is tied up in the name. But, what if you have a really great boat with stupid name what is one to do?

Though naming the vessel after your ex-wife is probably a worse idea.

How about "Your Mother". That would make hailing anyone just that much more fun.
