I read somewhere that someone wanted to name their yacht "Alone".

They could then go cruising and write a book "Sailing Alone around the world" and take the family with them!

That's ALMOST as bad as Chronkite

"On 'Assignment' "

Me thinks the Josh Slocum Society might have a few "objections" to his application thereafter too....

Would make for a gr8 book just the same...anybody w/that kind of sense of humor would be worth the read;

A prior boat I owned was named morena. In translation to Portuguese this is lady of the evening. Which for her was quite prodigious. She clamed many hard earned dollars I wondered often wether I was being screwed.
Dinghy was named ena so I owned ena and morena. In reflection this translated in English to screwed and more screwed.

84 Pearson 27 - The Incredible Miss P
78 Erickson 23 - The Drain
Sunfish - the fish
Javelin - not the fish, the other one

Okay, the last two are not official, but that's what we call them.

Some friends of ours that had a particular affection for yacht club happy hours, with our help, named their new to them yacht "TipSea". Their dinghy was accordingly, "A Little TipSea".
