Re: Re-Naming A Boat

Thanks for the good suggestions. I will not paint multiple names on the hull. I am actually thinking about renaming the boat back to its original name. While working on the boat I have found many references to this original name (under sole boards, under cusions, under galley access hatches) so this name was never totally gone from the boat.

I am not generally superstitous, but sometimes when boarding a boat, entering a building, or walking in an area, you get a feeling of past history. You do not want to disturb that history. Maybe it will not bring you bad luck if you do, but you may have better luck if you do not as you have not disturbed the energy of the area or object (I believe boats can store a lot of energy, that is why people are so drawn to boats, and particularly sailing vessels, as large engine can disturb the flow of energy) If I do rename, I will use the proper ceremony.
