YA cute boat name thread
I thought about resurrecting an old thread about boat names but my search fu was not up to snuff so I am starting a new one. I wanted to show off my cleverness in naming the dinghy and finally managed to get a pic.

yes I know Cher was bigger than Sonny but I was not about to rename the boat for the sake of the joke.

My favorite name I have seen so far was Never Again III. It was on a boat close to mine in the yard and was in pretty bad shape. So either it was the last one or Never Again IV is taking all the attention.

Saltwater Suzi just told me a couple of cute ones:

'Doctor's Orders' on the boat and 'Following Doctor's Orders' on the dinghy.
'Road Runner' and 'Coyote'
'Cabochon' (means unpolished gem) and 'Little Gem'

One I'd like to see, but never have is 'The Vessel Calling' (imagine the confusion on the VHF)

"City Marina, City Marina, this is the Poppinjay. We'd like to request a slip for tonight."
"This is the City Marina, back to the Vessel Calling, we have a slips available, what is your length, beam and draft."
"This is the Vessel Calling. Thanks, City Marina, but we don't need a slip."
"This is the Poppinjay. I'm the one who needs a slip."
"Vessel calling, please make up your mind, do you need a slip or not"
"City Marina, OUT."

I saw a sailboat named "Blow Me" a few months back... now that would make an interesting Coast Guard call...

Years ago there was a Columbia 34 down the dock from us named "Laughing Lady" with a dinghy named "Chuckles".
We named 0ur old Bayfield 29 "Joint Venture", the dinghy was "Dividend"
Back in the '60's my mom and dad named their black-hulled Hinckley B40 "Lola", from the line in a broadway show of the day, "what ever Lola wants, Lola gets."

cool names
I have to say that the most clever boat/ dingy name combo that I have ever seen is
Boat: Miss Behavin'
Dingy: Miss Behavin' (A little Bit)

Our boat on the other hand is s/v Ranger and the dingy is "Plan B"

I still have dibs on the name; 'Winds of Time', for my next boat.

I saw a boat in Annapolis called "Natty Bloh". It even had the National Bohemian beer guy on it:

Another of my favorites is "Hooked on Tonics".
