We are trying to name our Prindle 16, which my wife and I sail for fun and relaxation on Sarasota Bay in Florida. Any suggestions would be welcome. (We have a few of our own, like Duet, Miata, etc.)

Thanks,

Andrew

On of my favorites on Lake Champlain is called "A Meeting". (Whenever its owner needs some time away from the office, he tells his co-workers that he's "at a meeting".)

Hi Kevin, There are many names in this category. Like "Assignment", as "I'll be out on assignment today". There are some websites for boat name but I do not remember the addresses. Try a web search and you will find lots of ideas.

The name that Rick Bliss has on the side of his N6.0 is a good one, too - "Follow the Yellow 6.0"

I forgot to mention that we named our first Mystere 6.0 "Dances With Waves" because we bought it right after the movie Dances With Wolves came out. We had graphics made up so that the name was done in the same colors as the boat decals and with a font that made the name sort of resemble waves. It was really eye catching and we had lots of nice comments about it. Then one evening during our local club's race, we had a monster storm come roaring through and wreak havoc. Dances With Waves suddenly Tumbled In Storms and was written off after smashing up on rocks after we were rescued by the Coast Guard. My only insurance claim in 26 years of buying boat insurance but it paid back all those premiums! NOOA weather radio issues high wind warnings at appropriate times where they urge operators of high profile vehicles to consider staying off the roads. So the new Mystere was named 'High Profile Vehicle" to remind us of what happened. Interestingly, we had watched the 6 P.M. T.V. news weather report immediately before launching as we live on the bay and the race area is close enough to sail to for the 7 P.M. start. Not a word was mentioned about this storm - it took a giant right turn down the eastern shore of lake Michigan just to give us a whole new experience. The storm traveled at 50 mph and had winds as high as 82 mph. Not the recommended way to get a new boat or a new name!

Andrew-

Definitely take your time and the "right" name will come to you all. Sometimes you can incorporate part of the boat, or your own name, in a "play on words" (my Taipan 4.9 is named "My Tai") or pick a name that describes you (or the boat) in some way- My late Father's last boat was named "Folie a Deux" which is psychiatric lingo (he was a psychoanalyst by trade) for the situation where 2 people go crazy together ;-)



Enjoy!

If you like foreign languages, you can simply translate cat into something else. In Spanish (and other latin languages), for example:



Cat = Gato

Tiger = Tigre

Panther = Pantera

This is too weird... You're P16 doesn't happen to be yellow, does it??? My name is Andy ( Andrew), I just got a yellow P16 (1978), and my wife and I have been trying to think of a name for it... Strange...



Anyway, best of luck,

Andy

My friend had a Fireball named Rhumb Runner, which I always thought was clever. I have no idea what to rename my Tornado.

I do think boats should be named. Some would disagree, especially the smaller boats. They each have their own personality and quirks. It is important to be comfortable and cats when sailed well truly become an extension of your body. It also inspires a higher level of ownership and pride.

My first catamaran was named “Hotspur”. The “spur” gives it a little piece of Texas, however the name was taken from the book “Hornblower and the Hotspur” by CS Forrester. The book is number three in a 10 + series of naval fiction set in the late 1700’s. Yep, when British canvass, wood, gunpowder and cannon balls ruled the sea! This is Hornblower’s first command and HMS "Hotspur" becomes part of the Channel Fleet, blockading the French fleet based at Brest. The routine of life on blockade duty is broken by furious North Atlantic gales. "Hotspur" is a sloop of war and although smaller, slower and outgunned by virtually every other warship, she is able to defeat a French frigate with better boat handling and tactics and uses her strengths to stage daring raids on the French coast.

I tried for a long time to come up with the perfect name, and nothing was just right. Then without trying so hard, "Hotspur" just came and I knew it was right. No name for the new cat yet. Get the book and read it. No doubt my favorite in the series.
