Renaming a Boat
Quick question about renaming. My wife and I bought a boat last fall. We had the previous owner remove the name from it knowing that we were going to rename it "BADFISH". We were married on a ship and our first sailing experience was on our marriage day and our anniversary is coming up in couple of days and we are going to take our maiden voyage on the "BADFISH". We thought it would be cool to rename the boat and break open our marriage champagne, possibly over the bow, havent decided that one yet, on our anniversary day. Now on to the question. Im probably not going to get time to actually have the name printed on the boat before we sail it. Should we still do the renaming ceremony without putting the name on the boat before the ceremony or should we wait until it actually says "BADFISH" before performing the ceremony?
