Re: Need a New Name!

You sound a lot like my wife and I, we also love the boat, we are both in our 2nd and hopefully last marriage, Why don't you call it "Second Time Around"

Re: Need a New Name!

No one is qualified to name your boat except yourselves. It's a highly personal act, and in my negligible opinion, must come from you only.

Best of Luck, and may you be inspired.

This suggests the transformation of a caterpillar to a butterfly. Along those lines:
  • Chrysalis
  • Emergence
  • Monarch
  • Mariposa
  • Phoenix
Or a change of direction:
  • Swerve
  • Redirection
  • Rebound
  • Echo

How can anyone but you know what has meaning to you? Or have I lost my sense of humour?

True that only we can ultimately choose a name but other people's ideas will help the creative thoughts flow!

Reading the Wrong Tea Leaves

No, no! You should have caught on to "may you be inspired." Get it? "May you be [known as the sailing vessel] Inspired".


Sheesh, ya can't even be nuanced around here…

I think this falls into the category of cute and overdone, which isn't necessarily terrible but worth keeping in mind.
