Do you need to perform any rituals if you rename your boat "Come Hell or Highwater"?

How about naming your boat "The Vessel Calling." You can jump into and confuse a lot of VHF conversations.

"City Marina, City Marina, this is Second Wind. I'd like to request a slip for tonight."

"This is City Marina to the vessel calling...

"Yes? This is Vessel Calling."

"You requested a slip, vessel calling?"

"No, do you have one for me?"

"What?"

"This is Second Wind - I requested a slip."

"Vessel Calling, do you request a slip for the night."

"No"

"Yes"

"City Marina, Out."

What fun.

Only tidbit I have to offer is when you arrive at a foreign port and they don't speak English it can be difficult to convey her name.

How about for the name of a boat: 'Ex-wife's Alimony'
Now that would make a few people angry and a few laughing.

That reminds me of a singing group that advertised their CDs on late night cable. The name of the group was "The Original Artists". Their CD box set featured every song I would ever want to hear and they were all performed by "The Original Artists." I boght it an the music sucked - it pissed me off ...I think I ended up paying 12.99 for shipping too.

You know what P.T. Barnum said: There is one born every minute.
He even had a special door in the animal tent for you to see the Egress.

Have you ever seen an Egress?

I've been shown it many times, but I don't think I ever paid to be shown it

If you are going to name the boat after a living person or persons; then the safest way is after your own children. The spouse may claim the boat as their's because it has their name on it.
