Re-naming the boat
The name changing method that I was assured, some years ago,would work without any bad results was to make a new name out of the letters of the present name. It may sound strange but you will find that you can spend meny hours over wine, beer etc. with friends working on this one. My last boat was named "Fly Away" when I bought it and a lot of time was spent rearranging letters but the name never was changed. I didn''t really dislike the name but it became a challange.
