Superstition for changing your boats name?

I'm curious about what everyones opinion is on this subject? I've heard many different superstitions and how to get around them growing up and would like to hear what you have heard.

For example, I always heard growing up that it's extremely bad luck to change the name of a boat unless you follow the procedure which is..If powerboat, tap the bow to shore 3 times. If sailboat, the boat must be sailed backwards three times it's length (Go figure...)
