Here are a couple of sites that have naming/renaming ceremonies...when I renamed my Newport, I used the protocol in the second site...along with several bottles of champagne, a case and a half of wine and plenty of goodies...ended up with about 40 folks from the marina there to witness it...all is now well with the boat...Good luck, and all of the above are is a fantastic opportunity for a party.

By the way, there is also a part of the ceremony that involves naked virgins and such, but in Northern Idaho, it is often too cold for the naked, and finding one of the latter is rare.

Good luck

Go to, click the archives link. At the top of the next page, you'll see an article by John Vigor, entitled "Interdemoninational Boat Denaming Ceremony". It is the most requested article in their archives.

If nothing else, you'll have a bloody good laugh!
