Hyperion jrd22 and sailortjk1 earned some rep on this one. I love how even the most innocuous post can become a flashpoint for conflict on SailNet.

jrd22 Sailingdog- As were you, apparently, but it's not really very important in any case is it?. The link, or mention of the ceremony was not the central message of my post anyway. JD

sailortjk1 I'm glad we all have a sence of humor.
Gota love sailnet.

I believe if we look closely, they are one in the same.

jrd22 It doesn't seem to me that any of you are taking this name change seriously enough. You have to remember that you are dealing with GODS here, and we must show the proper respect. I have changed the name of all but one of my boats without any major repercutions, partly I am sure, because I have approached it from the perspective of "you can never be too careful". Having spent enough time on the water to come to the conclusion that there are forces out there much stronger than me or any of my little boats, it only seems prudent to pay a little respect to the ancient Gods of the seas. I recommend, and strictly adhere to, Vigor's Interdenominational boat denaming ceremony(48° Vigor's Interdenominational Boat Denaming Ceremony). Follow it precisely, first with the denaming ceremony and then (with a proper time interval in between) with the actual re-naming. I strongly urge you to pay particular notice to the recommendation, no, the requirement, that you not use CHEAP champagne, the Gods do know the difference. The same applies to the VOLUME, don't be stingy (re: Gods). Following these procedures exactly has eased my mind numerous times when it seemed that I may have inadvertently pissed one of them off big time.

If it's good enough for Jack Aubrey, it's good enough for me.

Now I just have to think of a good new name for Free Spirit, which seems kinda cliched.
How about Sophie, Aubrey's first boat, (Master and Commander)

primerate84 Although I am only slightly superstitious, I renamed our boat after we purchased her at the end of last season. The first time we took her out this year, the line on the roller furling tangled, requiring me to dropp the jib to motor back in to the marina. When we were approaching the marina, I started to smell a slight burning odor (like rubber burning). About three slips from mine, I throttled the diesel down to idle and it cut out completely. Luckily, we had enough momentum to make to the slip and secure the spring line. Upon further investigation, the belt had basically worn through and was tossed off the engine. So, after re-winding the furler (no damage) and replacing the belt on the diesel (no damage) I guess that was just a warning that I need to find some damn virgin urine to pour on the bow. Does anybody know what the minimum age for the virgin is to qualify?
