A friends boat (Sea Ray 30, okay not a close friend ) called "Home run", but the funny one is his dink is called "Slam dunk" , only after he flipped it trying to put the motor on.

PS...we saved the motor and he was OK, although his ego was bruised

As the saying goes:
Then Admiral has the fleet.
The Captain has his ship.
But I have cutest little dinghy
in the whole wide fleet.

Dinghy names seem to always be diminutives of the mother ship. Unless it is a commerical vessel.
As for example: the yacht "Wild Geese" the dink may be 'Little Gosling'. Or "Wife's Mink" and "Kitty's Fur".
Okay my imagination isn't that wild...but you should get the gist of this posting.

Boat Names

"Paid With Points"

As a person who works in the mortgage industry. I was shocked at the tacky name choice of a boat owner and I assume fellow mortgage rep in RI.

Starwindy - cute, and as you said, cute story, but what'll you name the dinghy?
How about "XYZs" XY seas

I knew someone who owned a coin operated car wash and had the audacity to name his Wellcraft Scarab, 'Quarters'. The pharmacist in the same town named his sail boat 'Drugrunner'. Obviously he lived nowhere near an international border.
I considered naming my first boat 'Sailboat Rides $5'. I am on my third boat now, and her name would be 'Sailboat Rides 100 Bucks', due to inflation.

My boat has been on the hard for three years now, due to major keel issues, and I haven't come up with a name yet. However I bought an 8" sailing dinghy so I could get some sailing time with my grandson. The previous owners name on the dinghy is "Bitter End", which somehow seems appropriate for the mother ship.
