In Master and Commander they had the Chicken Coop right on Deck. Just pull them down below decks if you are sailing through a storm. And could you keep the grain down below?
And, there are always chicks on my boat baby...

You must excuse me, but I find this quite hard to believe. If you are as much of a "reckless blowhard idiot" in person as many people on this site believe you to be in writing, I don't know how many chicks would find your overbearing opinionated personality attractive.

You are certainly not the one for this young chicken, in that case!

On the other hand, your boating advice can be cogent (at times when you are not railing against safe boating practices and encouraging drunken binges) and I have another question.

What is the story with re-naming a boat? And, what would be a good boat name for a gal like me?

PBooty! I can't help what labels insecure coach sailors on this site try to hang on me. I am but a humble sailing dude offering some free advice on the art of decorating a floating house. Did you like that link? Now that's a fancy houseboat.
Name for your boat: I think you already have it: Pirates Booty. It's perfect since it is a stinkpotter. They always have goofy names like, "Radar Love" "Windbreaker" "X-Rayded" You get the idea?
As for the ladies....I can't tell you...I have to kill you.

Darling Surfsq - do not mind me - I had a bad day... Just needed to blow off some steam - and you were the lucky recipient.

As for the name, my friend said that "Pirate's Booty" could be offensive to some. As you can see, I am quite mild-mannered and would not want to ruffle any feathers.

Someone suggested: Gypsy Dream...

How about that?

And, although I live in Cali, I don't like the taste of boots either, thank you very much.

Gypsy Dream is a great name. One minor problem. Gypsy implies a wondering spirit.....It's a houseboat!.

Yes, but I will be meandering down the coast, changing marinas every 2-3 months, starting in Marina Del Rey and heading South. You seem to forget that it has 2 perfectly good Crusader engines and a V-hull, matey. It will be out on the water at least once a week and I may take it to Catalina once it is all tuned up.

Seems you fellows miss the "boat" in "houseboat"... silly rabbits!

Houseboats can wander... it just takes them a bit more fuel and a bit longer to do so... No one said gypsies had to move fast.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I have nothing against Stinkpotters. Especially ones that contain beautiful Pirates. But taking a Houseboat to Catalina sounds kind of crazy to me. And, if I am saying that it must be! But I like that idea of going to different ports and hanging out. How about this name: "Rocket Science" or even better:
"Miss Direction" lol.
