Re: Boat Name Needed!

lol, boatman 61, could it be that you are a little desperate? Looking at your posts one might get that impression....

Yakamoz is way cool. It's unique -- not many others named that out there. And it has a beautiful meaning behind it. Now that I know the word I just like saying it. . . .

Re: Boat Name Needed!

Trias:

-Internationality - Every country that has rocks 200 to 250 million years old has Triassic. Every one, without exception...
-Dynamism & sportivity - probably
-Love to nature - it IS nature!
-Femininity - all day long
-Beauty - they are rocks, is this a rhetorical question? Of course they're beautiful.
-Endevourism - glad this got changed to tenacious. Jurassic is as tenacious as it comes - get some Jurassic on you, it don't hardly ever come off...

Re: Boat Name Needed!

I name my boats for the feelings they invoke in me. That is why they are all named "Fear and Loathing!"

Re: Boat Name Needed!

I recently lost a pet of 13 years, a Tonkinese cat. We called her Duppy. Our next boat will be named "Miss Duppy" and of course it will be a cat!

Maybe
"Cheshire" (the cat)

Re: Boat Name Needed!

Trouble with Tribbles. Or more realisticly Money Pit. Money Pit sounds better than a Hole in the Water That You Throw Money In.

True.... they'd sure be popular...
and it fits the criteria requested a lot better than 'Traveller'

-Internationality
-Dynamism & sportivity
-Love to nature
-Femininity
-Beauty
-Endevourism


See what I mean.... not desperate...
just realistic....

Re: Boat Name Needed!

since your boat is a Tempest 37, you could go with the only major female character from Shakespeare's The Tempest: Miranda.

-Dynamism & sportivity
(I love sailing in a sporty manner and am willing to sacrifice some comfort for it)
-Love to nature
(I love the beauty of nature with all its mysteries & beautiful sights)
-Femininity
(Her captain, myself, is a women after all!)
-Beauty
(I love esthetics and style)
-Endevourism
(Maybe tenacity fits better, if I want to achieve something, I go a stretch for it. I want my boat to do the same for me).

More ideas?
