Re-naming the boat

Okay, I just read the topic on Boat Names. While I’m on the subject, I thought I’d like to get some opinions about re-naming my boat.

My boat is named “Jesse Boyce” after the builder’s uncle. For the sake of tradition I’ve kept that name for 12 years now. When I do an on line search for her, I’m inundated with sites for some two bit rap singer! I really don’t want my beautiful little boat to be synonymous with that ilk, so I’m thinking about changing her name.

She is the prettiest rose in the garden and a Yankee through and through, so I was thinking about re-naming her: “Yankee Rose”. Okay, I know it’s the title of a rock and roll song so I’m not getting too far from the initial problem, but it seams to fit her so much better. Any thoughts?
