May not be nautical but: Kid's Inheritance.
Now that would be a good one.

Ummmm....is it too late to return the cat?
I'm sorry but after 15 years of owning Weimaraner's without kids and a several year reprieve, I got the bright idea that Santa should deliver my young kids a pair of MC's. My thinking was, MC's are most like dogs but can be left alone for a couple days while I go sailing, right?
These now 2.5 yr. old MC's have proven to be absolutely fantastic with infants and small kids. In fairness, they damage nothing unless one of them has a spontaneous neurotic episode and does a Fred Flintstone escape. I suppose they are great 'cat's but stupid by comparison to the Weimeraners. Can a cat truly be your friend? These two nocturnal demons run laps around the house at night, ambush each other and sound like small elephants in a china cabinet. If I have to listen to them bitch me out in the morning for the next 20 years - every morning - to be fed at 06:00 religiously - or retaliate by waking up my young kids to start my day regardless if I chose to ignore them - I'll go nuts. Not even an auto feeder helps....oh sure, they'll eat but then wake me up anyway.
Names? How about, 'Damnit'?

|FishSticks||Wait! Don't name him yet! I have it. Since you sail only to Little Misery call him Itchy as a reminder of the poison ivy that covers that place.|

|LarryandSusanMacDonald||True Story: Some folks we used to know, live-aboards; She wanted a cat- he said no way. But he finally agreed - he said she could get her cat, but he got to name it. And the cat she got was named $hithead. It was fun listening to her call the cat out on the dock on an almost daily basis.|

Thanks everyone for entertaining suggestions and some brief stories. In the end, we whittled it down to two names. And we went with:
Casco...as in Casco Bay, ME
...and we are now trying to teach our 4 year old son not to say "Costco." :-)
