Bought new boat, what to do
Sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip......oh wait a minute that's Caleb's theme. Anyway, in the never ending quest of always wanting a boat with a little more I stumbled across a Bayliner Buccaneer 210 in fantastic shape. I talked to her owner on Thursday, listed and sold my beloved CatManDo (Catalina 22) on Friday, looked at Bayliner (Blue Heron) on Saturday and bought her. Previous owner had replaced rigging, halyards, furler, depth finder and much more in last two years. My dilemma isn't the boat I bought, I'm an inland lake sailor (10,000 acre) in Indiana and PO has never experienced a knockdown on her, my problem is much bigger than that, what do I call myself on here now. Do I continue with this name, close this name and register new, do I go through a renaming ceremony as to not invoke bad luck or borrow a page from Prince and place a symbol such as € and become the Sailor Formerly Known as CatMan22? I know this doesn't compare to such important matters as whether or not they ought to allow legal liveaboards at the local waterpark or do I have the right of way while under sail and I encounter a paddle boat with trolling motor, but there it is. I do not want to tempt Poseidon or Neptune's fate and am wondering what measures I should take, of course I could just call myself Norma Rae and suffer from multiple personalities.
