I named her Suzie Q after my wife. My first boat The Willie Mae was after my mom. You can guess why Suzie Q came next.

First 2 boats were named Pazienza which is Italian for "Patience", something that my grandmother said to me quite often. Unfortunately, it's a lousy name for a boat because a) no one knows what it means and b) no one understands it when said over the radio ("Paz..... what?")
Current boat is named for my bride (and daughter's middle name). The Admiral is quite humble and never attracts attention to herself. But she never objected to having a boat named for her. She won't admit it, but I like to think that she's flattered.

My first boat is named after the Coast Guard ice breaker of the same name. There were four winds in the class. The Eastwind was built during WWII and served until 1968. It was my Dad's favorite command of all the ships he served on in his 20 year career in the CG.

My first boat was a Ranger 29 back in the 70's. Being 25 years old and after reading the Lord of the Rings trilogy, I named it "Frodo" who was an adventurer with the dinghy being his faithful companion "Sam". The boat I have now, a Pearson 323 was named by PO and we found it to be suitable to us "Sterling" with the dinghy as you might have guessed "Silver".

We named our boat Chance. Chance, Maryland is the place we discovered her. Her previous name was Happy Days. I am still in the process of restoration but should have her in the water in July. The word Chance could also be reflective of my sailing skills once we depart land.

Our Catalina 30 is Odyssey. It our first large sailboat and we plan on having an odyssey. The dinghy is called Dayenu. It means "it is sufficient" in hebrew. We could not decide on how big a dinghy we needed and finally settled on the eight foot one because this one is sufficient.

Our Chrysler C-22 we got last year is our 1st boat and a dream come true and was never named as far as I know so I thought Don't Wake Me was appropriate for 2 reasons our With our Chrysler C-26 on our maiden voyage with her we got cought in a gale storm, we were tossed around real bad but it didn't stop the wife and I from getting right back out there so we call it Shaken Knot Stir'd.

"Mariah" was the name of my Beloved Dog (timberwolf) who was later named "Windy" . Also, the Company that built my boat was named after the owners dog. Mariah is my boats name because everytime I see her, I think of the times I had with that wolf. Man's best friend. I miss her.
