I believe a boat must be respected and maintained... so she can bring you good luck...
I totally agree.
Next week we'll find vergin pee and seriously do the renaming of our sailing vessel origionally named sv 'HELL NINO' for the first 9 years. It took anout a month of asking several mexican's what the name ment sence I don't speek mexican and 'hell child' was the best answer I could get. I think it is time for our catamaran
to grow up and be called sv 'We Be Jammin' especially with carring . We got the coast guard document for the new name a month a go, but it's been either too cold or too breezy to work on removing the old name, we have removed all signs of the old name including removing the old documentation
and tomorrow we'll remove the painted on name and prep (clean the sides of the hulls ) to get ready for the new name to go on. On April 16 were having a bunch (about 20 ) shanty singers and friends to christen our boat and sence we have 2 hulls we'll use 2 bottles of champaine on the boat and heavy on the libations for the singers and friends who show up.
As far as doing our maintance I've added a 5208 Garmin chartplotter
, XM radio/weather, windless & 200 ft of chain rode
& 35lb CQR anchor
, dingy davit/ couch hammock, a new 420 sf screecher head
sail, batteries and battery charger
, VHF radio
, AM-FM CD player. My wife got her a Sailrite sewing machine
and is making new main sail cover
upholstory. I really think our catamaran
will look like another much updated boat anyway.
Some one told me instead of alcohol libations to twist up a big legal
PERSCRIPTION fatty snd smoke it all while doing the denaming cermony with the virgin pee. I guess Neptune likes his virgine pee with a puff, especially legally.
