I was reading these names out to my wife. After reading 'Got Wind', the Admiral suggested:

Passing Wind

Re: New to me boat

The boat had no name (lucky me didn't have to potentially create any bad luck) as it has been raining a few days and rained on me all the way to get her I am calling her "rainy day" and as in saving for a rainy day. Have a great day Congratulations! I'm still searching for a name for my :macx: . I ...

Re: Sailing This Weekend

After my son's soccer game loss, we drove down to Kemah and picked up "Nameless", my 1999 :macx: . We moved her to a mast up storage location so that in the future we could just back her into the water and go. After 45 minutes of leasing paperwork and 1 hour of rigging, we were off. My brand new 20...

We named our 26M "Y.B.NORMAL": Not a normal powerboat, Not a normal Sailboat (AND neither of us are considered normal folks)! We get a lot of positive feedback on the name.

Re: Time to name my boat

The name of my boat "Take Five" refers to the number of family members (3 kids, admiral and me). Plus it's my favorite Dave Brubeck tune. Then finally the obvious reference to catching a break once in a while. I did see a family of four also with a cute name "Four Play". Same concept. ~Bob We whet ...

Re: Time to name my boat

For what its worth, here's how the Admiral and I came up with the boat name. Criteria: Had to be somewhat nautical, had to have secondary meaning to us. I am an engineer and my wife was adiploma nurse till her mid-40s when she went back to school on line and got her degree too. Boats name is: Two D...

Re: Sailing This Weekend

Sunday's predicted high at Annapolis will be in the mid-60's, and this is the last weekend before Casa Rio Marina closes its ramp ... worth a go! Sounds good to me. Our high today in Kemah, Tx is about 81. But a light jacket, pair of sun glasses, and a warming adult beverage while aboard Bossa Nova...

Re: Time to name my boat

Good question. I've been wrestling with the same question. I thoroughly enjoy witty names and have a couple in mind. Names like Windchester , as in the lever action 30/30. I also think Carbon Credit is funny given the current environment (no pun intended). :) I've also got a couple names that mean ...
