To say the least, I am very excited and just wanted to tell someone.
Now I just need to name her. Anybody want to throw out some suggestions?
I would like to name the boat after my daughter - Alexandra Elizabeth I was thinking maybe the Lexi Beth or Smart Alex ? Or maybe naming the boat Frantically Relaxing, I am an extreme type A personality and my wife thought this was fitting.

Best of luck with the new boat. No help with names, my wife insisted that I name mine "Tackle Box".
BTW, you can change you signature*from*"2004 Striper 2101 W/A with 175 Evinrude...coming in April" to "2004 Striper 2101 W/A with 175 Evinrude...arrived a week early"

be careful if you let your daughter name it...
mine named my boat "the great seapickle" :)

Thanks Wayne that's a good idea. I should also add " and need to sell the old boat quick" LOL. My wife will drive me crazy if there are two boats parked in the driveway for more than a few weeks.

I like Lexi Beth or maybe Lizzy Lex

Thanks guys. My daugher is only 9 months old, so she won't be naming it. It will be me and my wife deciding. I really like names that are a play on words so I have to keep thinking.

Ah yes, I remember getting the call from the dealer. Your boat is here, please come and pick it up, we had 3 different guys that offered to buy it today alone. I said I'll be there in an hour, guard it with your life. :grin: Good luck with your new rig, may it give you years of trouble free pleasure.

First of all congrats!* I am picking up my new boat this weekend as well.
Secondly, A wise moderator from another forum detailed how all of his boats in his life were named after the important women in his life (wife, daughters, grand daughters, etc)
I think if you get nice elegant lettering on boths ides of the hull, plain Alexandra Elizabeth fits the bill nicely. Try playing with this website:

Congrats on your new boat. IMO Alexander Elizabeth will take up too much space on the side of your boat. How about Lizzy Beth. My daughter is Elizabeth and I almost named mine that. Frankly, Frantically Relaxing sounds a little lame.

Thank you everyone for the good thoughts and naming ideas. Please keep the names coming.

What a coincidence. My two daughters have the middle names of Alexandra and Elizabeth.
Can't offer you any suggestions on the name but I wish you the best of luck with you new rig! :)

"Alex E" maybe ;?
Congratulations on the new ride, and you know we like photos! :grin:
