Re-naming the boat

I am surprised you mention Jose Cuervo and good tequila in the same sentence. I tequila should say "100% agave" on the label. Such as "Hornitos" etc

Re-naming the boat

The name changing method that I was assured, some years ago,would work without any bad results was to make a new name out of the letters of the present name. It may sound strange but you will find that you can spend meny hours over wine, beer etc. with friends working on this one. My last boat was named "Fly Away" when I bought it and a lot of time was spent rearranging letters but the name never was changed. I didn''t really dislike the name but it became a challange.

Re-naming the boat

Beware...there''s something to this superstition.

I boat a new (used) boat last December, and noodled around with a new name until February 2, when I settled on a new name and submitted it the the USCG to document the boat and began discussions with a company to make a graphic for the boat.

She sank two days later.

I''ve now bought another boat, and am considering whether or not just to leave the current on her.

Don't change her name! Just let your memory bears with her not for the stuff you found on somewhere else. You must keep your boat's name because it is a part of the history of your boat. If one day I buy QE2, will you change her name too? I sail with my second-hand Catalina 25 over 15 years even she got a very common name but I'm always happy with it. You won't re-name your dog, will you? Think again mate!

This rubbish about never changing the name of a ship is a load of mumbo jumbo. (IMHO)

Whether one should observe certain ceremonial procedure at the time of the renaming is the real issue.

Personally I think that's a load of bollocks as well but it is a load of fun and a bloody good excuse to get pissed as a parrot.

Anyway, bugger the Gods. Didn't do much bloody good for the passengers and crew of the Titanic did they ?

Just leave it as is. It's nice, and there's a story to it. Yankee Rose is a horrible name... Why on earth would you want to name your boat Yankee Rose. Sweet Jesus! First do no harm!

So we shouldn't expect a reply? We should all just let this go?
