Best is the name of Grandparents nordhavn. It's "Moon River" and it matches the boat perfectly

Was thinking of a couple different ones.

Savannah smiles (daughters name is savannah)

Thunder runner (from my military days on the invasion of baghdad, also sort of a double meaning)

Down range

Send Me

Any thoughts?

I had a friend who bought a boat (who never owned a boat before) and he managed to royally ding up the props on his maiden trip on a lake in Minnesota. Yes, he drilled some rocks within the first 500 feet. He, of course, liked to tie up to other boats and have a few margaritas. We recommended the boat name, "On The Rocks" - which stuck and became the boat name.

Friend had a boat named "Ashley's Envy". She always said he spent time on that damn boat that he did her.

The worst I've seen was "Miss Carriage"

When I was a kid I build a small hydroplane and named it "Dry Rot"

My wife and I named our boat EvenSteven. Her name is Eve and yes my name is Steve. Two boats in my neighborhood are called "Dirty Hooker" and "Twins." Twins I get. They have twin girls. Dirty Hooker, well, I'm not sure how he got away with that one from his wife.

My Dad is a Pastor and says he once had a boat named "Visitation". That way his secretary could tell folks he was "out on Visitation" if they wondered where he was.

Ok we got a new boat. Needs a name, last boat was " above the law". This one will either be crime pays, blood money or drug money. I should note I'm a cop and wife is a nurse in pharmaceutical sales. Thoughts?

In New England, MA specifically, if a cop named his boat "drug money" or "crime pays" there would be a "Fox 25 special investigation" launched as soon as it hit the water.

That's true....our press and local news love "a reporter banging on someone's car window...or knocking at the side door with a nasty flood light in their face"! We see it nightly on the news.
