Renaming a Boat

Use Vigors. Make sure you remove any evidence of the old Name(s). Just like he says. Do it. We had to remove 3 names off our newly purchased 50'' sloop. Then we let her sit around for 2 weeks nameless - shake off any residue if you know what I mean. That wasn''t in the instructions - we just felt that 3 names was alot to shake free of. When we renamed her, we had a party showing off the new name (stern plaquard in our case) with champagne - 1 good bottle for the boat - and 1 for the guests. Or 2. We also attached a silver dolar to the base of the mast as we said a prayer.

Sounds over kill? Why tempt fate ? Or Neptune for that matter?
