I am in the same boat She's named "Moondance". Kinda foofoo, but it'll have to do.

TB...funny...we did exactly that on our first sailing dingy..."Bottoms Up"

I always liked "The Office" as a name...cause when someone calls on the cell I could say "I'm at the Office!"

My brother's first boat (40 years old and wooden) was "Leki I".

There's a Shark at my club called "Madly Off In All Directions", with the letters in "directions" bending down and appearing to fall off the transom.

My wife wasn't very keen on getting a boat. When I suggested that we could name it after her mother, she said "Oh, she would really like that!"

There are 10 kinds of people. Those who understand binary and those who don't.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
