It still had registration numbers and/or HIN. It always had a name per Neptune.

Dont mess around, do a denaming ceremony then a renaming ceremony.

Drinking rum will be a requirement and will be the one beverage I will not leave port without. I'm not superstitious but my boat might be. I've only just met her and haven't learned her likes and dislikes yet.

You need to get a black cat, carry it under a ladder then throw it at and break a mirror.

Really dude, just put the new name on your boat then kick back with a beer or a drink of your choice.

Do I just consider the process to be halfway done and pick up in the middle or do I treat it like you would the naming of a new boat? BTW, I believe the boat has been without a name for at least 10 years, maybe more.
Unless the yacht was documented, and the documentation continued, the "old name" doesn't matter. Nor does/would it matter if you are not going to re-document the boat. If you do not find a documentation number somewhere aboard where it cannot be removed, it was likely never documented and so not an issue.

I would think if it doesn't have a name it can't be considered changing the name.

although I do agree with the above, drink rum and party, make the party goers come up with a name. if you're lucky "topless" will be one of the favorites. LOL

Invite some friends over, get a bottle of rum and make up some clever incantations and drink/spill some rum and have a party. That should cover all the bases. What could possibly go wrong?
