Most sailors are proud of their boats... if you're not...maybe you need a different boat. I wouldn't sail on a boat I would call what you're planning to name your boat.

But, it is your boat, and your choice to live with whatever you call it.

IMHO, it is a bit petty to call it "Filthy Whore" and then say it is named for your ex-wife. At some point, you saw enough in her to marry her, you might want to respect that part of whatever relationship you had.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
