My PO removed the boat name because he wanted to re-use it for his new trawler

with a really poor "artsy" drawing of two cows butting heads on the transom. We just called her DOSGOATS, and never bothered. Hell, we couldn't see the hull
. Almost as bad a having a yellow hull: you only have to look at it when you''re leaving in the dinghy!
Do what YOU wanna do. It's your
boat now, not the PO's.
While we've all seen "cute" and sometimes funny
, if not hilarious, boat names, the ones I definitely abhor are the cutesy "my girlfriend"-type names: Misty Smorgasboard
or Helen Martha Jane
. Hell, if ya gotta name the boat to remember your girlfriend's name, ya got bigger issues.
