If you re-name her don't forget to do the "Neptune's ceremony" for re-naming a vessel so you will have good fortune as your ply the oceans. You can skip the part of the ceremony about "the virgin" and go right to the Champagne across the bow and shouted thanks and entreaties to Neptune for fair winds and calm seas.

I'm happy for you.

You need to sail her down here and pick up some of the local Leeward t-shirts.
