ooo- that's some serious ju-ju, there... I'm doing both ceremonies with our boat almost entirely to have fun, but my wife was the first to say, "Wrinkles" has got to go. We're not as "wrinkley" as the previous owners, but quickly getting there!

Yea, I did not realize until reading the ceremony instructions that was a bad thing. In fact the 2nd owner renamed the boat and is the one that accidently left these names on her. I have been in contact with that owner who told me it was his wife whom wanted to rename the boat (he was against it due to potential of bad luck). This coulple ended up in divorce as well as had some other "bad luck". Maybe it was due to leaving the original name in many areas of the boat.

I am thinking it may be best to go back to the boat's first owners boat name.
