The original owner traced their family roots back to colonial Salem, MA. They found they had family members that were both accused and accusers during the witch trials. That lead to the boat's name and the graphic for the cruising spinnaker ...

My first Catalina 36 was named "Celebration" when I bought her which was fine with me. I lost that boat in a divorce () and it took a few years to recover financially. When I did, I went looking for another 36 and I found one 5 years newer in great condition. When I first went aboard her, everything was the same as my old boat, even the upholstery. I said, "Wow, this is Deja Vu". And so, she is.

In the vein of this thread... I will share my father's boats.
Dad's nickname (his pet name) of my mother was "Reenie" short from Maureen.
His first boat "Reenie Won"
His second boat "Reenie Too"
His third boat "Reenie III"

The last boat was a brandy new US yacht, 27 (as a 12 year old I was there the day he bought it). Purchased in 1981. Sadly the boat was lost in a financial mess my father got into back in the mid 80s with a change of jobs.

Some of my fondest memories as a kid sailing that boat, and he kept the boat at LNSC on Lake Norman in North Carolina.

Years later. And I hope you are still reading to comment on this... My brother, also a sailor, traded in his first boat (an O'Day 15) for a US 25 15 years after my father had his 27. The boat CAME with the contract for a slip on Lake Normal at LNSC!

My brother never stamped the boat with the letters, but he named it "Deja Vu."

I sailed with him as a 30 year old, some 15 years after my teenage years on the lake. I truly was an eery experience for me to spend on that lake, at that club, in a boat so scary familiar to me.

Thought I would chime in here. My wife named our boat The S.S.R.I. The S.S s inside of a life ring and the R.I is next to it. She is in the medical field and all of her friends get it immediately.

Ssri's are selective seritonin re-uptake inhibitors, or a group of anti-depressant drugs. She suggested we buy the boat to help me stay sane when we had to live apart for a year for work. It sure helped.
