Ceremony performed on your boat name change?

Was just curious how many people have renamed their boat - if they did or did not do the "ceremony" and what happened afterwards...

Hello,

I have bought 3 boats (and sold 2). I haven't done any renaming ceremonies, and nothing bad has happened.

Each step of the way required naked virgins, poetry, music and liberal libations. It was hell, that's why we kept doing it.

Yikes! I did not see this thread! I just asked y'all on the "Boat Names" thread if you thought it was ok to rename a previously-owned boat? I gather that most of you don't believe it is bad luck to remove an old name? Right?

i renamed my boat and did a quick ceremony to appease Neptune. Seems to have worked since nothing bad has happened.

big gathering... words written and read of appropriate, and serious nature de-naming first, re-naming second, good bottle of champagne, no cheap stuff here, then enough of it for every one to toast and sip couple of glasses, lots of drink.

only problem, I was too liberal with the summer invites that day most weekends were booked with guests and rendezvous.

I bring my own share of bad luck - so really hope your boat doesn't have any already....hmmm maybe you need to reconsider

I did a full renaming ceremony with the champaign and bottle of rum and even the sacrificial ingot... you MUST not only request permission of the gods of the sea but those of the 4 winds.

Did mine at Nanny Cay BVI with the assistance of about 30 friends and boaters who joined in and we all had a nice time of it. Some of the espousals of honor and recommendations to the ships soul were worth recording... unfortunately I had overlooked that in my preparations.

These can and should be a lot of fun for you, your boat and your friends not to mention a few fish who benefit from a shot or two of the selected libation.
