Re: New to us - keeping name - rechristen??
My dear Serenity has had half a dozen names in 30 years.. When I told my father that I was going to rename the boat he said how much bad luck I'd entail and it wouldn't be true unless I went through all these steps of booze and virgins urinating in the bilge and ... ugh.. whatever.
When I was 10, I would have believed him on all the bad mojo I could garner by renaming a boat.. EVEN ONCE!! Heck, I know that the Yamaha 33 he bought in 1980 is STILL called Haiku even though she's been through umteen owners since my dad, and even he bought it from a friend.
In the end I did the title documentation, drank some rum in the galley and put new stickers on the stern.
To me, she's SERENITY, and all my luck has been good.. I don't care about her previous names, but I know this one will be her LAST.
BTW, I don't think any alcohol should be wasted breaking across a bow!!
