Re: Re-naming the boat

How hard do I try to make out the old name? It is almost invisible, but if I put on my glasses and get the lighting just right I may be able to figure it out. Question is if I put my name on boat and dont know the old one, am I still changing it, they could be the same.

If you decide not to believe in superstition and it turns out that you were wrong then you are in trouble.
If you do believe in superstition and it turns out you are wrong...actually you will never know if the effort you went through for the ceremony worked or was pointless.

I decided to ignore superstition once (never start a voyage on a Friday)...I was almost run over by 4 tugs with barges, ran aground while avoiding them, then encountered freak storm 40kt headwinds w/12ft waves.....

When I do an on line search for her, Iím inundated with sites for some two bit rap singer! I really donít want my beautiful little boat to be synonymous with that ilk, so Iím thinking about changing her name.

She is the prettiest rose in the garden and a Yankee through and through, so I was thinking about re-naming her: ďYankee RoseĒ. Okay, I know itís the title of a rock and roll song so Iím not getting too far from the initial problem, but it seams to fit her so much better. Any thoughts?

No, but the excuse to buy the high quality hooch is awfully nice.

If you bought a boat named Dick Head you would change the name in 2 seconds without a thought.

Re: Re-naming the boat

I am not superstitious. I think this is analogous.

I'm at church on a Sunday evening in a small north Georgia community outside of Chattanooga. The preacher decides to talk about the upcoming youth retreat to Florida.

He recounts that in past years he, as the youth pastor, had worked hard to make the church bus suitable for the eight hour journey on the interstate.

Each year, despite his best efforts, the church bus broke down.

Being on the cusp of the next trip and having done everything in his power to make the bus worthy of the sojourn, he worried about what would occur on this trip.

It was the devil, he explained, who had sabotaged the trip for years. And we were exhorted on the ways to protect the youth from the devil's grasp.

At least one of us wondered if the youth pastor who prepared the bus for the trip was responsible for the lack of success.

Re: Re-naming the boat

I will say this about superstition. When i was over seas "fighting the good fight" i didnt break any mirrors or walk under any ladders. That being said if i was out on the ocean challenging mother nature or weathering a storm at her mercy i probably would be glad i took those extra steps to avoid any bad "luck"
