There are three Brer Rabbits listed in the USCG documentation database, two Brer Rabbit and the third is a Brer Rabbit III. They're based out of NC, GA and CT. This doesn't even include the state registered boats. There are probably a dozen or more boats named Brer Rabbit.

IIRC, a while back, the authorities were looking for a trimaran by that name, as a possible person of interest in a criminal case—possibly a witness to a crime, possibly the criminal.

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.
