Would love to own a Hans Christian or an Island Packet but financial realities dictated that I settle for a Catalina. Hence the name; Thistle Dew.

Bootlegger is the Boat and my Wine label is "Bootlegger Brews" for the Home made Wine and Flavored Liquors I make on the boat!

I'm a Bootlegger!

A friend of ours has a boat named 'Prelude'. I suggested the dinghy he towed behind be called 'Postlude'. His wife replied, "And the Captain can just be 'Lude'".

There was a picture on the 'net a while ago showing a dink with the name "Original Contract" attached to a very large stinkpotter named "Change Order". If you know construction, you'll get that.

My Islander 36 is named Mustang. Bought it that way, don't plan to change it, I don't want to sink.

If your friend doesn't like Postlude, maybe he should name his dinghy "2 a Kiss"

Previous owner named the boat "Galileo's Dance." I have not changed it, don't wanna anger Poseidon. But may anyway, using the proper ritual: Renaming Your Boat - BoatSafe.com

We think the name comes from this:

Rum Shop!

My roommate and still one of my best friends grew up in Barbados. I went there last summer to be in his wedding and absolutely loved it there. We went to every corner of the island exploring, and stopped at a lot of rum shops on the way. I loved the rum shops!

I don't think I'll be able to sail there anytime soon, but some day I'd love to. Until then, I'll build my own rum shop here!
