What do you do if the current boats name is something unpronounceable or worse, obscene? Do the rabbits foot and champagne routine? Wifey would have me committed. Finding a good boat is hard enough without adding the problem of finding one with an acceptable name.

Geeeezeee Loueeeeze..!!!
For an old wood boat, just drink lots Of Capt Morgan's Rum, maybe eat several Buffalo Wings or the like, then sing several old shanty and/or sailing songs. When the time arrives, puke into the bilge as you call out the name you wish to name your boat. If it's fiberglass, just change the name and hope for the best...

I'm not superstitious either...but we did the ceremony just in case!! (g)
Just be aware that transferring the documentation to a new owner costs $$. I was about to do it for a boat I just purchased, and was told it costs $600. That was a rude shock!

Releasing the documentation costs nothing, just a ten day wait for the Coast Guard to send back the paperwork.
