We used the John Vigor ceremony when we renamed one of our boats. I am not superstitious but shortly after changing the name we had the top plastic bushing break on the head
sail roller furler
, and the furler
tube chewed into the forestay. Had to haul the boat
and replace the stay and section of the furling
tube. Almost couldnt get the head
sail down off the tube. I don't remember any other "back luck" incidents like that. Probably just a coincidence.
