The last thing you want in an emergency is for there to be any confusion about who you are. If you plan to sail internationally, leave loads of time to get all of this done and have it processed through all the safety authorities before you leave.

Then again, if you have a little boat sailing on a lake, none of this matters.
This would of course be irrelevant if you're like so many of us who bought boats to old, for any of this stuff to be installed yet.

My boat for exampl hasn't been sailed since 1987. It has no Radio, No EPIRB, No PLB or A.I.S. (It will some day though). So I guess I should re-name mine before registering all of those eh?

Re: Changing name of your sailing vessel

I like this version.
Renaming Your Boat - BoatSafe.com


When I bought my girl she was neglected and dirty. I felt it was necessary to let her know I would be taking care of her now. Cleaned up and shiny, family aboard, and fine champagne. A fine new name befitting her.

My boat was documented, I had boatpapers.com do my paperwork and paid the 75.00 fee to expiate them i had the papers in 4 days with the name change.

But we started thinking about possible the possible confusion this would cause. Especially if in international ports. Not a good scenario....

Re: Changing name of your sailing vessel

it's absolutely conflicted but I'm not taking any chances. Don't call me superstitious but I'm not tempting fate just the same.

Re: Changing name of your sailing vessel

I've always used rum, a shot for the people and a shot for Neptune. Champagne must be for upscale yachties.

Naw, Neptune likes his drink strong. Rum or gin; or both. Madame Pele likes Gin so in Hawaii you offer Gin. Tie a bimbo to a long string that is attached to some yardarm nearby. Drink the gin while you swing the bimbo against the boat or against the skipper. Drink more gin(or rum). Shove boat into the water. Stop the swinging bimbo and figure out how you are going to get the boat back since no one tied a line to it. Watch it float away. Drink more gin.

Now that is how you properly launch a boat for the first, and probably last, time.

Re: Changing name of your sailing vessel

All those rum soked sailors falling into the drink gave neptune a taste for more rum soaked sailors. Fobbing him off with more rum just whets his appetite....just sayin....

Which is where the term "Rum dumb" came from. The Dutch used gin instead to give us "Dutch courage". Not sure where the term "down the hatches" came from.

Re: Changing name of your sailing vessel

that's from all the rum and gin being thrown around the docks during ceremonies, ending up down other boat's hatches
