With all the great minds here I thought I would put this out there for some suggestions. My brother John just bought a new boat,,,a 40 ft. trojan,,,guess you could say it's a yacht,,, and he needs to come up with a kool name for it. We are trying but not liking what we come up with so I thought I'd get some other ideas,,,,and well with all you folks that love to cruise well just thought ya might have some good ideas. It will be used mainly on the Cheseapeake Bay as we live in Va. John has a great sence of humor and boating is his life,,,HELP !!!
So far he has Whale's Tail,,or Knot Home.
First thing that comes to my feeble mind is "OUTHOUSE"since his name is John..
you got to admit, it's original..but maybe not..just a suggestion...let me think..I will
get both brain cells working after another cup of joe.
Using Mike M's theory our boat is named Glo-Ri.
Gloria (my mom) and Rita (that's Gram to you guys). Funny thing is they both hated the boat.
Our other boat was a high performance toy actually given to us by a client of my Dad's who couldn't pay his legal bill. It was electric blue and was aptly named BLUE THUNDER. We renamed her after my middle daughter Catherine who was the one who liked to play with her the most. As a kid Catherine would have a way of looking at you when she was unhappy that my Dad called her Thunder Face. Well It didn't take much to change the lettering of Blue Thunder to read Thunder Face. And that's where she stayed for many years. Certainly between the name, the hot boat and the
cute 16 year old that usually drove it , we got alot of comments.
Long way of saying I suggest you use something personal, a family nickname or something like that. Who cares if other folks don't "get it"? It's not their boat.
Our boat is named "Grateful Days" because we're grateful for every day we're on the water and my wife and I are/were Deadheads from back in the 1970s. One name that I've always got a good chuckle from was "Wet Dreams"
When I was a kid my parents took so long to name their boat that everytime someone asked me the name I told them....BOAT!....they finally named it the Lucky Luna (moon).
Although I would be honored () if you brother chose the name BOAT....I think a better name would be......MY BIG DINGY
Thanks all for the great suggestions,,,,Some were quite unique. I think he has made his mind up,,,I thinks it's gonna be Loon-A-Sea He says that fits,,,cause he has to be Loony to spend so much on a boat. <VBG>
