Re: Boat name advice

Did the crew at the fire station give him a nickname (that is able to be seen in public instead)?

Re: Boat name advice

I like Chief. I also like Allison. I happen to like one word names so I did not reply to the poll.

If it was me, I might go with Chief and perhaps have a graphic added, something firefighting related.

Re: Boat name advice

If your uncle is anything like me, his title as chief was very important to him. A title such as that is earned through years of hard work and experience, not by a piece of paper or the number of bars (stars) on one's shoulder.
Second, a boat name should be simple and easy to communicate. Easily read on the stern and easily understood on the radio, especially in an emergency.

"Any idiot can make a boat go; it takes a sailor to stop one." Spike Africa aboard the schooner Wanderer in Sausalito, Ca. 1964.

Re: Boat name advice

krazz, I'm sorry for your loss. I got a little choked up reading your post.

As to the name, when I see formal names on boats I think of commercial vessels, especially tugs and such, maybe because my uncle had a tug named after him. Did your uncle have a nickname? I also like the less obvious suggestions made here. They seem more appropriate for a sailboat.

Re: Boat name advice

I personally wont give it any name of any person, I would name it after my favourite sea creature and mess it up like winged seaslug or red dolphin or yellow porpoise some kind of thing like that because sometimes you get so ticked off with that person you regret the name.

Re: Boat name advice

J E Allison sounds good but I'm also thinking it would be good without the middle initial.

J Allison would be good too.

Think of how it would sound on the radio too. I think "J Allison" has a better flow than J E Allison.
