    Manina....a young lady I knew in Argentina a while ago. Always wanted to name my sailboat after her, for some reason my wife didn't quite understand.

    I name them after my kids or nicknames of loved ones usually.

    Is your new boat a drifter or gas powered?
     
  8. Jerry, she is powered by an outboard. I was thinking of encorporating either my wife's or sons name with a reference to fishing if possible. Keep the names coming.... Im still open to any creative ones. I like Swell Dancer so far.

    Ok, powered is different, why I asked. Usually on power boats (since they have a tendency to break down occasionally) I like to give off the wall names. That way if it does break down you aren't swearing at your wife or kids (in a round about way LOL).

    Do you have a keyphrase you like? Either a nickname of yours, or an off the wall oneliner? Like people putting "My Yacht" or "Miyatt" so you can say "Wanna go for a ride on MY Yacht?" type phrase for a ride on a dinghy. LOL. Just an example. But something like that.

    Best I've seen in a while: A 50-foot yacht named "Change Order", towing a small inflatable named "Original Contract"....

    My driftboat was named Row v. Wade.

    For powerboats, I'm partial to full names of adults who have passed through my life...in sort of a New England fashion. I named one after an old friend, and ultimately shortened it, like from John K Smith to Johnny K, but the memories of the person came aboard with me every time.

    Not bad, but sounds too much like "Manini," which is the Hawaiian name for a certain small fish, and also is sometimes used as a generic term for "small fish." Some other guys and I once formed a bodysurfing club, and one member jokingly suggested we call ourselves "Kukai Manini." We ended up calling ourselves "Ho'o Mai Nalu" which translated roughly as "getting together to ride some waves."

    OK, now, how about "Kim Chee?" Or "Kims' Chee?"
     
  18. Fantastic! Love it, keep em' coming!!!

    This is my neighbors. "On the job"
    When someone calls you when you are on the river(like your Girlfriend/wife), and they ask "where are you?" you say you are "on the job" :)
