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 !!!!

HAVE NO CONCERN.
NUMEROUS ARTICLES IDICATE IT IS O.K. TO RENAME AFTER PURCHASE. N.G. TO CHANGE NAMEAFTER RENAMING.

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.

The site for the renaming/denaming/naming ceremonies I referred to earlier is at:
