Re: Boat Name Protocol ?

Yes, you should name your boats.

A boat is a female. Give the boat a proper female name.

For those of us who grew up in the 60s and 70s, that means something natural, organic, or emotional. Mythical names are also acceptable.

My boat "Thoe" is named after one of the Nereids, the daughters of Poseidon. It is also very short for radio transmission purposes.

Just don't name your boat "Wet Dreams"...
