Boat Names

I am just full of questions today....

I have always wondered how people come up with the names of the boats. Some are fairly easy to figure out others not so much. Is there a naming etiquette that should be followed?

If you have a boat how did you come up with her name?

Hated the old name, did the de-naming cremony, went nameless for years until the right one popped into my head while on a cruise.

My boat has yet to be named. I'm working on it.

I like the story I read years ago about the Maxi Racer on SF bay named FUJIMO. If I remember correctly . . . probably don't due to the rum again . . . the owners wife was giving him a hard time about the boat so he named it for her. "F you Jane I'm moving out"

Talking The Other Woman

I had been struggling to come up with the right name for mine for a few months. Then it happened...I was spending so much time on the boat that my better half began referring to her as the other woman. My '76 Catalina 27 has been formally renamed...complete with ceremonies....she will be forever known as The Other Woman.
