I don't like most boat names.

Cute, artsy-fartsy. double entendre, or cryptic....Blechh.

I kept the name of my Ericson....it's ok...a little cutesy but describes the lack of wind on the Chesterpeake in the middle of summer....when it is just a whisper

I was thinking Wikipedia defenitions of your boats name might be really fun to put a link to it in your avatar and a pic. It would come in hand for the difficult names

A guy in our marina owned a Dufour 27 called "Ad Nauseam" (Until Seasick)
now he bougth a Carter 30 and named it "Single Malt"

IMHO he meant that No. 2 is a cure for No. 1

The Admiral named out boat "Cloud IX". She then bought a Trinka dinghy, with white hull, stored on the flying bridge and named it "Cirrus"

I love shoes, sold them at Nordstrom at one point, and joke is I never wear High Heels, so closest I come is heeling over on a sailboat...

Other boat names I have come across that made an impression...on Chesapeake Bay in the early 90s there were some good racing boat names...

"Shamalamadingdong" - My husband's favorite

"Aunt Jean" - The owner bought the boat with the inheritance his Aunt Jean left him.

Steve.
I chartered a boat a week ago. It's name was Cat Sass II. 47' Catamaran from the Moorings so its probably not related. We got some good laughs from anyone we had to give the name to.

Boat: Pacific Seacraft 25 "Turtle"
Posts: 364

My 31yo Pacific Seacraft 25 is named "Turtle" because she reminded me of an old sea turtle. Tough and kind of slow. When I bought her the name was Malia. I changed that almost right away without trouble as it was nowhere to be found on the boat.

It was also long before the election. I have since found that the Presidents older daughter is named Malia. A hawaiian word(malia or malio) for "the sky just before dawn". A very pretty word picture but to me it just didn't describe the way the boat "talks" to me........m

I used to race an Olson 30 named Holy Guacamole. One of our competitors was called Aliens Ate My Buick.

Came across a tender in the UK called "Tax Refund" as the owner paid for it from an income tax refund he received from the taxman.

I liked the racehorse that was named "Hoof Hearted".It was great to hear the announcer call him during the race.
