If for real, your situation - to me anyway - is both funny and sad. It reminds me of a publicity campaign a friend created a few years ago.

He was going through a bitter divorce with his wife and being the witty comedian he was, developed a logo he had screened on T-shirts and hats for all his friends to wear at the courthouse, in protest to his wife's unrealistic demands. He even renamed his sailboat and applied the graphic on each side of the hull.

Anybody who spent any time on Newport Harbor from the 80's to today, or knew him personally, will recognize the boat name and know who I'm referring to.

Choose whatever name you're comfortable with and deal with the public's reactions. It's your boat and your misfortune.
