I can't figure out if you ARE superstitious or not. Personally I think it is bad luck to be superstitious, but then again, sacrificing a few small animals to pagan gods might be a good idea.

I changed the name of my last boat without any ceremony or superstition and was even lame and lazy about getting the new name painted on the side. My history with my first boat is a tale of worry and woe that more resembles the book "The Boat Who Wouldn't Float" by Farley Mowat (bet book ever) than not.


I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
