TOPIC: Have you named your boat?

Have you named your boat? 3 years 10 months ago #97663

my 1966 starcraft with 80 hp evinrude has just been named. Parts came in the mail. Garage a stifling 90 degrees at 7pm. i am very very carefully installing a new head and head gasket. I try to start the boat and nothing. Normally this effort would result in thrown tools and lots of cursing. but not tonight. tonight i slowly looked and analyzed till she popped then ran beautifully. I was so happy i named my boat "My Obsession". i will be looking for stencils this weekend. what is the name of your boat and how did she get the name?

papa, I named one of my boats ( AFTER YOU ) and then when cute girls asked what I named my boat I could say I named it after you. by the way I was only 16 years old at the time. I renamed another boat with the same name and it only stayed on it for a week, as I was just married and my bride did not like it. I,m 60 years old and have been with the same gal for 41 years now, maybe the next boat will be ( AFTER YOU ) again . renee still thinks that I lost my mind. greg :laugh:

My 32' sail boat was name an Italian name "Dolce Vento" (Sweet Wind)because it was bought with a bonus that we got for taking a 4 Italian restaurants from another contractor that were weeks behind and got them open on the target date.

One of my Yellow Jackets is named "Teresa" after the Girl Friend. Another is "Chloe" after the puppy.

As I get more boats done I am going to have to come up with more names.

I name all of my boats. My old 12 footer is named for the condition of the hull.

My little cruiser is named Swee' Pea, partly because of the color, and partly because it's just so darned cute.

I've been working on my 1962 36' Chris Craft Roamer that I got from an estate sale a while back. Several names have gone through my head for this one. I thought of "Memories" "Remembrance" "Serenity" "Labor o Love" stuff like that as my father loved Chris Crafts and I am rebuilding this one in his memory.

Although as I've been working on taking it down to bare hull, the Roamer has developed a rather "wicked" personality of it's own. (It really doesn't like being torn apart so it can be rebuilt, it's a long story that it would likely make you laugh) So several names have been running through my head over the last year or so. "Sea Witch" "The Wicked Wench" but I think I have finally settled on a name... "Psycho Amazon" either that or "War Beach". "Psycho Amazon" is definitely in the lead for the name.

Eh my neighbors call me that anyway :woohoo:

Mine is 'named' "Driftwood" (it's a wooden boat). But that name just has never wowed me so I havent painted it on the side. I've tried a few others, but the family (including my helpful, sensitive,brothers) have shot them all down as bogus and contrived.

My son says "Floater" ..... I've considered it.

I launched after a ski boat last week named Titan Uranus. I don't have a name for mine yet.

I hadn't thought of that one. I like it, but I definitely need to get this boat's attitude leashed before I name it in my father's memory. This is the only boat I've ever worked or played with that has "wicked" temper. I kid you not, if you take down rotted panel from any where, lets say the headliner (all the wood is rotted I am trying to disassemble it carefully to use for patterns) All the screws are out, the board is "free" from any tension, and it still won't move. Look away and reach for a pry bar and the boat will drop it right across your knuckles, or your head. I've gotten a quite an array of bruises working on this boat, but I will tame the beast eventually.

Quietly said and simple. Those who see it think it's because it's a trailer boat, those who followed some posts know the real reason for the name :angry:
Thanks Frog

I named my '69 Owens Concorde 27 "Crew's Inn". Still working on a name for my Jet Deville. Dumb word-play names are a must for boats...

OK Gregg, one thing I'm not quite sure about. There is a ceremony for CHANGING a boat's name but is there one for actually naming it. If not I think we should start one.
1. Make a copy of the vessel's title/registration.
2. Purchase a bottle of CHEAP red wine, the cheaper the better unless you already have a box in your fridge.
3. Stand in the center of your boat either on the trailer or in the water but you must have an audience of at least one.
4. Drink a full glass of wine or two.
5. While repeating the new name three times lite the registration copy on fire and drop it into a pail of water obtained from your favorite go-to place.
6. Drink another glass, or two, of wine and dance in a circle still repeating the new name.
7. While still in the boat finish up the wine with your audience.

In dire straights beer may be substituted for the wine.

This is guaranteed to keep the Krakens away unless of course you are celebrating with Kraken Rum :laugh:

Re:Have you named your boat? 1 week 5 days ago #136254

question for you, is that a Shell lake Scamp? If so, could you send me a picture of the interior (seats). I recently posted in the main forum, i have to replace seats in my 1960 Scamp - having a picture of what they should look like would be helpful - the seats are ripped out of mine. Thanks in advance if you can help.

First, do no harm!
It's a lot easier to buy a boat than sell a boat.(Stole this from a member!)
All that work and hardware store mailbox letters for the hull? Tsk tsk..
