We named our boat Chance. Chance, Maryland is the place we discovered her. Her previous name was Happy Days. I am still in the process of restoration but should have her in the water in July. The word Chance could also be reflective of my sailing skills once we depart land.

My first boat was a Ranger 29 back in the 70's. Being 25 years old and after reading the Lord of the Rings trilogy, I named it "Frodo" who was an adventurer with the dinghy being his faithful companion "Sam". The boat I have now, a Pearson 323 was named by PO and we found it to be suitable to us "Sterling" with the dinghy as you might have guessed "Silver".

Eastwind

My first boat is named after the Coast Guard ice breaker of the same name. There were four winds in the class. The Eastwind was built during WWII and served until 1968. It was my Dad's favorite command of all the ships he served on in his 20 year career in the CG.

First 2 boats were named Pazienza which is Italian for "Patience", something that my grandmother said to me quite often. Unfortunately, it's a lousy name for a boat because a) no one knows what it means and b) no one understands it when said over the radio ("Paz..... what?")

Current boat is named for my bride (and daughter's middle name). The Admiral is quite humble and never attracts attention to herself. But she never objected to having a boat named for her. She won't admit it, but I like to think that she's flattered.

I named her Suzie Q after my wife. My first boat The Willie Mae was after my mom. You can guess why Suzie Q came next.
