Re: What Does the Name of Your Boat Say About You?

My niece's business is yacht documentation and so I asked her what has been her favorite boat name that she's registered, her answer was that the yacht's name is Hers and the dingy's name is His. Have to laugh

Re: What Does the Name of Your Boat Say About You?

'Haranee'.

My childhood name for my older brother who died suddenly when he was 28 years old.

As a toddler I couldn't say his name, Darren, and instead used to say "Harran". This morphed into 'Haranee' as I grew older into my teens and up until he died.

I made a promise back then that when I eventually had my own boat I'd name it after him, and so it is.

What is the name of your boat and what does it say about you

i would love to hear your thoughts and ideas

My beautiful Ocean Girl, a CD30 was named after a nickname for me formed at the hospital I worked at. They would all say in a comically puzzled way that I was neither fit for city or country life.. What was I fit for? And I'd smile and say the ocean (Ocean Girl was born. ) OG ( the boat) was sold early this year and darn if I can't remember her new name, it was good, I liked it.



My husbands boat, and now my boat, is called Rain Dog. one definition is a dog caught in the rain, with its whole trail washed away by the water. As we are very much nomads, this kinda apeals to us.

Brian is a Tom Waits fan, so it originated from this song

Inside a broken clock
Splashing the wine
With all the Rain Dogs
Taxi, we'd rather walk.
Huddle a doorway with the Rain Dogs
For i am a Rain Dog, too.
Chorus
Oh, how we danced and we swallowed the night
For it was all ripe for dreamin
Oh, how we danced away
All of the lights
We've always been out of our minds.
The Rum pours strong and thin
Beat out the dustman
With the Rain Dogs
Aboard a shipwreck train
Give my umbrella to the Rain Dogs
For I am a Rain Dog, too.
Oh, how we danced with the
Rose of Tralee
Her long hair black as a raven
Oh, how we danced and you
Whispered to me
You'll never be going back home,
You'll never be going back home.
Chorus

Sorry for the long post.

Re: What Does the Name of Your Boat Say About You?

I was looking for something that was easy to spell phonetically, wasn't derogatory or could be misconstrued to be something else. Something that could be recognized internationally and easy to say over the radio. Besides, now I'm the captain of S/V Mango and if we ever meet "you can shake the hand of the Mango man..."

What is the one behind you? Seems to be the Italian cruiseship which capsized.

Re: What Does the Name of Your Boat Say About You?

I bought my boat to live on during an ugly divorce. The ex's name was Jo, so friends encouraged me to name the boat "No Mo'Jo" .... I resisted and went with "Nepenthe" which is a potion mentioned in The Odyssey that makes you forget your troubles and feel good.

Sad to say, Jo passed away last year ... Nepenthe comes in even handier now.
