Im picking her up this week and wondering if you folks have any good name suggestions?
Here is a name that will fit......"Debtor's Prison"
(Joking, off course. May your catch be bountiful and your friends more.)
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?
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.
Since retirement I refer to mine as "My Office"!
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.
Yellowlab's Kennel or The Kennel
Kerry, thats a good one... perhaps more appropriate: "Dog house" or the "Dog Pound"
Here's a few names for you Paul:
Knot on my Boat!
My Last Boat, IV :hmmm:
Enjoy your new boat. :beer2:
