Whats the name mean????

So I got to thinking while I was doing my later blog entry on the name of my boat...

“What’s that mean!?!?” | Cuajota

What does your boat name mean? Mine is Cuajota and it is cuban slang for the 4 J's...Cuban doctor who originally bought it had a family with 4 J names in it...makes sense...My family also had 4 J's in it so its kind of fitting...but does your boat's name have a story behind it???

S/V Cuajota - 1975 WD Schock Santana 30

Seafever

"Sea-Fever"

I must down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea's face, and a grey dawn breaking.

I must down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

I must down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull's way and the whale's way where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over.

By John Masefield (1878-1967).
(English Poet Laureate, 1930-1967.)

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

I have never owned a boat - I sail other people's boats.

I was thinking about boat names. For me "Clean Slate."

That is a from an old sailing expression. When early sailors were keeping log notes, they kept them on a slate. At the end of a watch they transferred the notes to the logbooks and wiped the slate clean. They started with a clean slate. About 10 years I wiped my slate clean and started anew.

As a teacher I taught in some schools that were so old that they had slate blackboards. They were so nice to write on.

Lots of meaning for me.

Our boat's name means "sandy creek" - in a language that's totally unintelligible (to me anyways) and nearly extinct. ...but it's been called that for 60+ years so who am I to change it?

The best name I think would be "The Office" - since then I wouldn't need an excuse to get out on the water.

The dumbed I've heard was a racer called "Cyclone" - since the boat went on to earn it's reputation as a slow-moving depression.

"Sail Meeting"

As in, "I am sorry, Mr. Smith is not available; he is out on a sales meeting."

My favourite name, there has to a story, was a big power boat named "Yes Dear"
