Re: Need a New Name !

I named my old boat the "Miserable Slut" after my (now X) wife asked me to name it after her.

Re: Need a New Name !

The other day, I thought a funny name would be "Nunya Business". I thought it would be funny if someone on a radio asked the boats name. I guess it goes along with the thread I saw where someone named their boat, "I don't know".

Re: Need a New Name !

After we rebuilt our runabout Isota II (named for a forebear) she has become the Isota 2.1. Guess you had to be there.

Oh the name is so perfect..,LOVE IT!

So I'm guessing there is no superstition about thinking of names before you actually have the boat..or telling anyone? We have two names picked out for our boat...both with some personal meaning, thinking that when we get the boat, she will let is know which one she likes better. But we have kept them to ourselves, feeling like maybe it's unlucky. Is that silly??? Lol

Thanks! We live the name and it fits perfect...
There are all sorts of boat renaming and boat name superstitions lol. The guy on the dock next to us about had a heart attack when he learned we had renamed the boat!
As to telling people the name before hand I haven't a clue

I don't know about a superstition but it will drive you crazy. I have had about 500 names for my boat to be, and everyone is perfect until I think of the next one.

Aww....that seems that it would be a tad disrespectful to the vessel!

We really just have the two picked out. Ones a bit whimsical and the other is foreign but much more regal. I was going to look at the link for the boat registry but perhaps I shall pass... I'm not sure I want to think of any more names. Narrowing it down between two names seems easier than 500!
