Naming??

I hear alla the chat; both pro and con, to re-naming a boat. I wanna know if it's bad Ju-Ju to pick a name *before* ya even pick a boat???

Also...is there a registry of sorts for names? Curious, as I don't wanna name her, paint it on th transom; then find a fella down the Bay a piece has the same!

Re: Naming??

To re-name a documented vessel, you need to go through the documentation process and pay another fee ($80+). Make any name easy to hear over the radio. My boat's name is NOT (I didn't name her) and it's a pain in the butt when people on the other end don't get the name and you have to repeat it.

Re: Naming??

My boat had a different name when I acquired it 14 years ago. I didn't like the name so I changed it to 'Seaduction'. So far I don't believe I have experienced any nasty repercussions from changing the name.... wait a minute... I never do win the lottery!

Re: Naming??

Go through the ceremonies. They're fun and involve lots of alcohol. No bad juju.
Just say the name three times in a row as if you're making a mayday call. If it twists the tongue, or sounds weird, pick another.

Re: Naming??

Ah yesss... "ceremonies" BTDT on a few other occasions, so I know the drill ! I don't wanna scotch any karma I still have by previewing the moniker I came up with. I think it will work, rollin' off the tongue or transom. Gonna hafta work on the font and layout ta see if it will work visually.
No similar names came up on either of those lists Jeff linked; so I guess I'm OK. I don't believe it's a (USCG registered?) boat, Murph...I'll find out when I go see it.
Just checked USCG registry. Looks like there's a few listed and two or so regionally; but it doesn't state what type. There are some gone out of date and the rest seem to be commercial of some sort.

If it's too common; I'll find another double (or triple) entendre to use.
