Thanks TQA! I was very fortunate being a newbie with a low budget, to get a solid boat that looks good too. And, with a 10'11' beam, it's a great starter live aboard!

That's a great looking boat with a real comfy looking interior. Congratulations. Since boats are referred to as sailing "craft", how about "Witchcraft" for a name? I'm seeing a silhouette of a witch on a broom in the middle of a full moon as your logo (which would also look AWESOME on a spinnaker).

Have fun, Mike

Mike, the spinnaker idea IS awesome! Any name with the word "WITCH" in it would be very cool, when the home town name under it is SALEM! Therein lies my only concern about the name - because I don't know if I'll keep her in Salem. WitchCraft or whatever still works as a great name, but with SALEM under it, it really would POP!

Thanks! Jack

I'd keep Salem as the home port no matter where you move to. It's a great conversation starter and would give you the look of a traveler. I know a guy here in L.A. who put Maui, HI as his home port on his boat. It's the first thing people notice, and he's never been ANYWHERE.

Putting Maui, HI as a home port, when he's never been anywhere is a WHOPPER, and begs the question - is he a congressman??? bwahahahaah

I'll think about it - hey, at least MY boat was IN Salem!!! - for 8 years!

Re: New Live Aboard Member!

Are you sure you want to re-name the boat ??? I'd think long & hard about re-naming a boat & then I'd choose not to do it . By the way....what is the current name ??? I'd caution you against re-naming it . Oh crap....I just saw the name of your boat . Not only would I be re-naming that.....I think the God's will understand . Might want to re-think a relationship with the guy who would give a boat some stupid French name . I have strong feeling about this . I was raised by 2 French women who sold me to french gypsy shepherds , who abandoned me to a pack of wolves . I still miss those wolves . I presently live aboard 2 boats , a 40' cutter named the Skipjack built in 1932 , & a 1978 Columbia 9.6 meter named Osprey . Sometimes my eyes go all teary when I think of those wolves .
