A local real estate developer of well known questionable character was (thankfully) recently jailed for bank fraud and this yacht "First Draw" seized for forfeiture.

Sara,
How about

"Cal-Pal" (nah, sounds too much like PP)

"Cal-Away" (he'll think clubs, You can think...whatever You want?...which leads to last suggestion)

"Cal-Gone"

nuff said. naming boats is real personal, other folks sticking their noses in can be a touchy issue.

I thought of it more of a testament to individuality myself.
That's pretty damned funny I was Loling. That almost trumps my all time favorite "Thunder P*&sy". I hope a moderator doesn't take this down. It wasn't the name of a Cat.

My stepdad named a workboat "Arugula" so he could say Arugula! Arugula! Arugula! over the radio. Strange man.

My first sailboat was called 'Swell Dancer' and my hobby job was working as a dance instructor.

Admittedly I'm a retired Marine Major...I call my 38' Ingrid "S/V Semper Fi" which is a slang Latin for "Always Faithful". A well thought name for a boat that is destine to sail out of the breakwater on Noverber 10, 2012 on a solo non-stop circumnavigation. I'll be 65 at that point and have no asperations of record setting voyages, just the same point of departure and arrival, just like everyone else that goes out for a day sail.

Names

I recall a name from many years back. While visiting the Bay area I spied a boat for sale by two ladies that had been life partners for many many years...the boat was called "Fire Men".

Purnamidam which is sanskrit for "All this is that" kind of a zen flavor.

Many years ago I started a chain of clubs named 'Dela Vu' (Showgirls). I had a little sailboat named 'Nauti Girl'. the spinnaker was black with 'Deja Vu's' logo, a round circle with a pair of fishnet cover legs and spike heels coming out of it. What a mistake. Most speedboats just had to get a closer look to see if any of the dancers were on board. I was always in someones wake...
