Light travels faster than sound. That is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

Good Morning Sailor Girl:
Any time we've renamed, the tradition was to burn the old name onto a piece of diftwood and hang it up. Then proceed with removing the old name and the renaming process began. However, since she had no previous name I don't the the God's of sailing would object to skipping the denaming. "Better Days" sounds like a great name.....May you have lots of fair winds in the days to come

LOL

I renamed my first boat (A Hunter) within a week, and for the last 4 years she's been fine (touching lots of wood)

The dealer I bought it from said he's bought 7 boats in his life, and renamed all but 1, which coincidentally was lost in a storm whilst being delivered from the Bahamas..
