Yeah, but have you been fully trained and have a certificate? - you don't want to mess with dark forces you don't fully understand..........

I am also an Ordained Minister (thank God for the internet )........admittedly I haven't yet decided for what branch of Woo, but that I regard as a mere technicality

Re: Need Name Ideas

There are a lot of stars in the sky (where else) to name a boat after.
ps. I had a friend that liked "Comfortably Numb"

Re: Need Name Ideas

We met a youngish couple cruising Mexico on a very nice boat called

"Grateful Aire"

We never asked, but we assumed they were grateful heirs.

Yeah, but you're happy with US $, DOJ has to convert them to pounds and he was at least trying to get a beer out of the deal

To everyone else THANK YOU for your suggestions. I plan to sit down tonight on the name challenged boat and see what if anything we agree on. It may just be she keeps her 'blah' name. I don't want to force anything on her that doesn't fit. SC
Be sure to let us know what you decide so we can wet your 'babies' head... in spirit at least

Or jump back on here and tell you what a dumb decision you made

(Anyone running odds on which one he chooses? It's my bet 'he' doesn't get a say at all ROFL)

I certainly will. There is a lot here to look through. And yes he will get plenty of say although I get veto power. Fat Bottom Girl for example never made the list!

Some finalists but not chosen:

Somewhere in the sun (too long)
Carribean Dreams (spouse doesn't like feel)
serenity
Sheet music

Any suggestions? I plan to look at constellations this afternoon.

SC
My favorites: "God's Pocket", which is actually the name of a cove on Hurst Island, north of Vancouver Island. "Pavane", which is a medieval dance described as "a stately dance done to elaborate ritual", which pretty well sums up boating. "Zydeco", a form of Cajun music, and who can be unhappy listening to Zydeco?
