A couple weekends back, up in Deltaville, VA, I saw a very nice sailboat with what I thought was a pretty cool name: "Someday Came." I figure the guy had been saying for years, "Someday, I'll have a nice big sailboat." Well, I guess his "someday" finally came.

Still working on what to name my little Islands 17 that I just picked up last weekend.

For the present my imaginary boat's name is 'S/S Never Sail' because I don't have a boat right now. (sigh) But I am looking.....

Named her Isla Rose. We were given about 15 minutes to decide if we wanted to keep the old name (we didn't) and come up with a new name and registration port. As for regist. port, we are Canadians from Edmonton. Edmonton is not a good registration port as there is no water anywhere near, let alone an ocean. We went with Victoria, BC. For a name, we came up with Isla Rose, the name of our 3 month old grand-daughter.

I always get a kick out of the name (surprisingly common) "The Last One II" or even "The Last One VI"...

Our boat was called Wharf Rat when we bought it.. struggled with a new name but went with FastForward because it's built by a Brazilian company called Fast Yachts. (Some days it seems deliberately misleading........ )

Ours is Tranquilidad. Spanish for Tranquility (my first boat's name). We considered TranquiliDad, as sailing is the only way to tranquilize dad.

Talking QMS reference...

After sailing a fast cruiser for a decade named "Quicksilver"...
Our current boat just had to be named... "Fresh Air"


And, yes indeed, I do remember some of the sixties.

"Mariah" was the name of my Beloved Dog (timberwolf) who was later named "Windy" . Also, the Company that built my boat was named after the owners dog. Mariah is my boats name because everytime I see her, I think of the times I had with that wolf. Man's best friend. I miss her.

Our Chrysler C-22 we got last year is our 1st boat and a dream come true and was never named as far as I know so I thought Don't Wake Me was appropriate for 2 reasons our With our Chrysler C-26 on our maiden voyage with her we got cought in a gale storm, we were tossed around real bad but it didn't stop the wife and I from getting right back out there so we call it Shaken Knot Stir'd.

Our Catalina 30 is Odyssey. It our first large sailboat and we plan on having an odyssey. The dinghy is called Dayenu. It means "it is sufficient" in hebrew. We could not decide on how big a dinghy we needed and finally settled on the eight foot one because this one is sufficient.
