You can't change the name of a boat. People have done it, but it is not allowed and there is no "ritual" that will make it OK. If you don't like the name of the boat you sell it and buy another boat. Same thing with dogs.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things y%^&*.....oh never mind. 90% of the people on sailing forums already use that as their signature! I'm not a conformist.

Jim-

There have been about a dozen threads on this, most of which also include a link to John Vigor's de-naming/re-naming ritual. Look at this thread or this thread.

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.

The whole renaming ceremony ******** is just that but with the added advantage of an excuse for a pissup. Please don't take it seriously.

Give all due homage to Neptune, and Poseiden with rise up and bite you on the bum. Give it up for Poseiden and Yaweh will get all narkey with you cos you should know that Jehovah is a petty jealous old **** much given to taking revenge on anything and anybody, often for no good reason.

No matter how careful you are by the end of the ceremony you will be (or at least should be) so stonkered that you'l have forgotten a whole slew of minor gods of the sea and , well, you're doomed.

Best thing for you to do is go below, open all your sea cocks and accept you fate.
