Beneteau First 26

I just purchased my first sailboat Beneteau 26, now I need to learn how to sail... She's pretty and functional.
I'm about two years early though before I thought I would be buying my first sailboat, but here I'm. I'm about 1500 miles away from her, I will work that out at some point.
I'll be with her in about two weeks to start my sailing lessons.
I would like to change your name, her name is Wolf two, She needs something different.
What do you think...
This is the start of my new adventure.

I think you should rethink that aspect of your new adventure! Read this first, please... then at least I can say you were advised...

Re: Beneteau First 26

The renaming tabu is reletively recent started of i remember correctly by the brittish in an attempt to stem piracy and or smuggling by causing sailors who where a superstitious lot to fear the name changing that goes with hiding a stolen or notorious boat. Every boat owner has had a run of bad luck at some time more often related to carelessness or bad maintenece than any of a meriad of superstitions.
