Renaming a sail boat

We are new owners of a chrysler 22 and would like to rename the boat. Is this bad luck or what.. We have not owned a sailboat before and would not like to piss off the sailing gods...

Renaming a sail boat

It''s been said that the only way a boat can be re-named is if said boat has been sunk and raised. To me, this seems a bit extreme. My theory-- and my way of pleasing the gods of sailing, is what my wife and I did with our Newport 17.

We sailed the boat several times to get a feel for her and let her get to know our tendencies. Only after we got to know each other did we rechristen her "Half-Fast" (more of a comment on her owners than her).

I think it''s really a Zen-thing.

Renaming a sail boat

G''day matey,
If you look under the topic heading of "General Discussion" you will find a post about this very topic along with the entire thread of replies. There is a way to rename a boat but it does involve major induction of alcoholic beverages. There is actually a renaming ceremony listed on the net at 48 north. That link is provided in the discussion as well.
I am in the same quandry in a boat I just bought as well. Hopefully I can find a way to appease the gods of wind and water enough that my rudder doesn''t fall off, the mast doesn''t get twisted in power lines,or the propane stove doesn''t rival a 4th of July celebration.
Good luck !!!!
M

One thing they failed to mention in the last reply is that each of the authors of the aforementioned articles disappeared at sea after writing. Oh, I take that back. One burst into flames while reading in bed. Best of Luck in the renamiming.
