Having owned several used boats over my life, I found it a bit daunting to come up with a new name for my first new boat, A Beneteau
373, now in commissioning.
My last boat was a Yamahe 33, that I had for 23 years. I renamed her Virago (after a prior Yamaha motorcycle I sold when my son was born and loved the name.) It's prior name was "Catch 22"
I once bought a used Seidelman 25 named "Happy Too", and hated the name, but was too young to flaunt the superstition, and change it, and lived with a name I hated.
My favorite name, was the old Swan racer
we used to see at Block Island. It was named FUJIMO, which isn't Japanese as you might expect. ( It Meant "F**K you Jane, I'm moving out"). I actually saw it in brokerage and almost considered purchasing
it just for the name.
After six months of consideration, and realizing that the radio
call may be difficult, we ended up with. IIWII
(It Is What It Is)
runner up was "Fiddler's Green", but I'm not ready for that quite yet.
Fair breezes, all.
