Default After 1 1/2 years of trying,I am now asking for help.

Sorry everyone,but this is a plea to help me name my boat.-You guys are really good at this-
Boat is a 1963 bertram moppie,20', red in color. Outboard powered.
I spent 900 hours doing a complete "keel up" rebuild on it.When I found it,it had been sitting in the woods for 18 years,with trees growing in it.Now I fish it every weekend. I use it on the chesapeake bay.[Solomons Island] . And is my 5th boat.
I work residental construction. Field supervision and punch out work.I also really enjoy [and miss]offshore fishing.
My wife and son are from the country of "Armenia"There names are "Anna" & "Musho". We have been a family for 3 years. This is my first marriage.[and last] My wife works as a hostass and waitrass. And putting herself through school.
If you have any questions that would help in naming the boat.Please ask.And thanks to everyone in advance. Sincerely, Jeff
I

You couldn't come up with a name in 37 1/2 straight days of working on that boat???

Good luck.

How about this:

"The Distance"

Why, 'cause it seems to me you go the distance for the things you care about most. 900 hours on a 63 Moppie when you could have bought who knows what for what you put into it.

A bride from Armenia when they make 'em right here in the USA.

Plus, do not settle for a boat with a name someone else might have.

Oh yeah, not to forget, Cake has a cool song that you could use as your theme music:

"Hes going the distance, he's going for speed....."

Check into it, might be cool.

"Boat" Ok, maybe I'm not known for my imagination.

Personally, if a boat is not documented I prefer to see just a clean paint job with the appropriate state numbers, and no name on it. It’s just my personal preference, I wouldn't name it.

"love boat" it matches your efforts on making her sea worthy and it matches your family.
