Re: Boat Name Protocol ?

Yes, name it, but keep it two or three easily pronounceable syllables. You want someone to understand you and take you seriously when you hail on VHF. A friend who has a stupid punny name for their boat is regularly laughed at and told to "get off the radio" when they say their boat name.... everyone assumes they are just fooling around and not to be taken seriously. This is dangerous.
