Re: Re-naming the boat
Insert 'unknown name' into the ceremony... all's good.
poor some adult beverage (or spray it) over the foredeck...
Lose something highly valuable (that is part of the boat) into the water. Poseidon needs to be appeased.
Make sure to do both these things in front of others.
All mentions of 'unknown name' should be stated as such:
"We rechristen the 'unknown name'... to 'new name'"
It's an 8 ft Dinghy... make sure the ceremony is longer than for a 30 foot yacht. It helps bring perspective to the task at hand.
