I like "Empty Pockets" and "College Fund".

One guy, named Wesley, bought a boat for his wife and it is named "As You Wish". The guy who showed me the boat never saw "The Princess Bride" and missed the reference.

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.

(My First Post!)

I had absolutely no luck finding a name for my "new" used Newport 27 on my own. I just couldn't think of anything that "fit".

So, for Valentines Day, one of the gifts I got my girlfriend was to allow her the honors of naming my boat.

Her choice...

"BOATICUS"

Oy vey. I've been contemplating breaking up with her just so I dont have to name it that!

*kidding*

I am going to print this image and hang it inside somewhere.

That's a nice name for a lady and a fine name for a boat.
