Boat I had before this one (before I got married!) was called "True Blue" and got renamed "Destiny" without pomp or fanfare...

Never had anything particularly bad happen... but then I *did* find my wife soon after!!

I still have to do this. Is it one ceremony (Big drink) or do you need to do a denaming (drink) Naming (drink) ceremonys.

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.

Talking We did it

Sold our Hunter for a 1 year-old Jeanneau. Did the whole renaming ceremony shebang --very superstitious!

Billy- it's mostly drinking, that's why I insist on both the denaming and the renaming ceremony! Remember, you're dealing with Gods (that's plural=lot's) here, no cheap stuff.

I see them all the time around here. It's really handy, they even come in those little carriers with the big handle on top. The bad part is their bed times are always REALLY early so you have to perform the ceremony early in the day!
