Being There

Not just because of the Jerzy Kosinski book (and Peter Sellers movie) but because of the state of mind the boat allows me to get in to. I heard a some say that "power boaters get on their boat to GET THERE, sailors get on their boat to BE THERE".

It works for me.

Our first boat we bought from my brother in law and was named "Justified" sort of self explanatory. the new boat that we just bought last summer will be named "Frayed" as in Knot, rope, life,or marriage. It may be the only thing I have left..... but at least I will have my boat.

Schiehallion

We co-own the boat, and after a lot of discussion, we all settled on "schiehallion"

Two meanings:
1. It's a mountain in Scotland that is almost perfectly symmetrical and was used by an 18th century mathematician to estimate the mass of the earth
2. It's a very complicated Scottish country dance that, if someone is out-of-step, all falls apart...kind like how it is to sail with more than one person.

We named our Catalina 30 "Winning Colors" after the horse that won the Kentucky Derby in 1988, the day we were married (me and my wife, not me and the boat).

We always said if we bought another boat (we had a Flying Scot at the time), we would name her Winning Colors.

Sea Chelles

Sea Chelles is the name of my Pearson 365 ketch. My daughter's middle name was Michelle and two of my grand daughter's middle names are Michelle named after their aunt Cristy who was called home at age 20. She loved sailing. So do the grand babies. Also, after the purchase and the decision on the name, we were changing the shower curtain and found a string of sea shells hanging on the curtain rod, so I knew we had the right name.

Stella

When I first saw Stella she was named "Constellation". My wife was very interested in renaming her because she was ours now and the name should reflect that change. Stella is right in the middle of CON STELLA TION and is centered on the stern. When we removed the CON and the TION we saw that the boat was once known as Constellation Earth!

Our Catalina 22 is called Calontir (pronounced Cal-On-Tear) - welsh for "heartland" for many sentimental reasons - and because we think it sounds good!

Mistral

1. 7 letters for the seven seas
2. Easy to say and pronounce
3. French wind for a french boat
4. Sounds quite nice with a french accent
5. Harder that naming my child, oh wait, I don't have a child!
