I am seriously considering "Seventy-Eight Point Nine" for my new boat.

Alternately, "McReynolds Must Go".

I think "Surface Frenzy" is kind of cool, too.

If I were to name my new cat boat "Gone 2 hull" would you classify that as "Best" or "Worst"?

Should also mention my dinghy to the above is white and the bottom always needs more bottom paint therefore the appropriate name....

I didn't read all the posts, but has anyone ever been stupid enough to name their boat May Day ! Or even something that sounded similar? When other boaters ask my boats name, if we are going out in the same area and they want to radio me, I always say my boat's name is May Day just to see how they react.

i was somehow lucky enough to buy an 8-year old boat with 2 previous owners, neither of whom named the boat. i had initially thought i would leave it un-named, but i'm now hedging.

i would use The Admiral's name or daughter's name in the boat name, but The Admiral has said no to all names related to them.

i was a navy guy, but don't want anything too cutesy or over-the-top-testosterone-ladened. so i've got one name that has received The Admiral's approval:

"at ease"

should i do it?

If it were a big cat, you could call your dingy "and back"

A 15' Whaler in my 'hood named "fi*sh*it".

I wanted to name our little boat SS Minnow since it is small and we are generally only on the water for about 3 hours at a time but my wife would not do it!
