Let's not leave out the worst power boat name of all time: It's five o'clock somewhere

I could see an entire sub thread cropping up on power boat names, actually..

Minnewaska is the name of the crystal clear lake where I had my first date with my wife. It is from the local Indian word meaning 'good water'.

The name is in reserve as we haven't changed the PO's name yet. Too much hassle to the documentation and we couldn't get it done before the delivery had to leave.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

That really is pretty awful!

"Bulk Carrier" (owned by a fat guy with a fat wife) is a tad better..

My newly acquired boat is called Ariel, which I think is a lovely boat name, and long precedes any Disney Princesses (TM) of similar nomenclature. If the craft has weathered 30 some winters with that name, who am I to change it?

Oh yeah, what does it mean? Of the many online definitions I have come across, the one I like best is "the prankish spirit in Shakespeare's 'The Tempest'". High School was so long ago.
