Did the same on my two boats but then I'm not comfortable with parties. Peace and solitude is my mantra.

Re: Renaming a boat

I look at it this way, yes it's probably nonsense, but what if it ain't?
Besides, a good excuse for a party.
I believe to a great extent you make your own luck, and if you believe something is un-lucky, it probably will be

Yep...scrapped and cleaned the old name off my boat...put the vinyl name on and launched it two days later. Rather spend the time and save the money i would have spent on a party and go buy something new for the boat

Man some of you guys are no fun. Parties and "believing" in superstition is half the excitement. Same as, I dont really believe in those ghost hunter shows but I have fun creeping myself out watching them after a few beverages.

Re: Renaming a boat

I'm not superstitious, but I go with the renaming celebration. Hell - you've got nothing to lose by doing it and as others have noted - a good excuse to throw a party
