If you are superstitous and desiring to change the name of your vessel. You should call in the local Priest, Minister, Shaman, Iman, Druid and Wiccan to rechristian your vessel with the appropriate Wine, whiskey, bourbon sacrifices.
Oh! leave a little bit of that sacrifice for yourselves. After all you need to be sure that the liquid you are using in the christianing is of the appropriate vinage. Replace the coins under the mast. These are used to pay the ferryman for the trip across the river Styx if things do go wrong in the big way.
And also have your spouse's permission for this Rechristianing party. She/He may want to add to the Rechristianing Ceremony with additional ideas.
After all it is a family boat.
Also do the paperwork for your state registry or USCG documentation. Most important item here and the registry for you EPIRB, and the FCC license also.

Or just call the vessel by its HIN #.

Bestfriend,
Because when Cam brings up the topic it's about something like Verizon coverage from four years ago, and the rest of us assume that the man has either gotten a new phone, dropped it overboard, or succumbed to swine flu.
Boat naming, on the other hand, is a topic of perpetual interest to many.
Personally, I like Cam when he's funny. I just read a post about the naming of people who hang out in boatyards and Cam was definitely not funny! Don't get him going on sextants, either. No worries, mate. Others have done the same, and the thread went on for days.

I'm pretty sure the Exon Valdez is still sailing with it's new name. I'm also pretty sure CNN would have told us if there had been any "bad luck".

Any sailor who says he's never gone aground is either never sailing or a complete liar...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Santa Clause is real. I caught him banging my wife on my sofa when I came home early from a business trip last Christmas.
