My boat was named boomerang when I bought her. I don't get it and most of the letters have peeled off. I foresee a boat naming ceremony where she is renamed Smurfette. I can't help it. My boat looks like a smurf.

I'm thinking of either "The Other Woman"
or
"Firebolt" accompanied by a nice truefire paint job
or
If I ever could get black sails with a skull and cross bones I might paint my hulls black and call her "The Black Pearl"

I all ready bought a little Flag with a skull and crossbones that says "The beating with continue until morale improves"

The A-Cat is "slippery when wet"
The Tornado was renamed DasBoot when [email]wet@!##$[/email] was complained about just prior to launch day in 1988. What can I say, I was young and dumb when I chose the name. Glad others were not as young and dumb and the name was never painted.

If done right, you can appease Poseidon or your favorite water deitie. Do a search on boat naming/renaming ceremonies and you will find plenty of info.

My Favorite ...

Years ago there was a VERY experienced skipper competing in the "Down the Bay Race" ... who tried to pass under the western approach causeway of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge ... he miss judged the clearence .... there was a loud "BONK" as he hit all four the roadway support beams .... that night a individual/group using red & black permenant markers named his boat .... "CENTER SPAN".

The boat itself isn't the special treat... It's actually named for a certain "thing" my wife and I do at "special times" which is done at fast speeds and can get quite wet. And so I named the boat after that! <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" />

The graphics I designed and a local sign shop did them in vinyl and put them on the hulls.

Who was on Starboard? no, who was on Port.

You could play to the committee boat's call as you cross the finish line:

Name the boat "Over"

"Over, Over"

or "Roger... Huh?"

"Over, Roger... Huh?"

(Airplane! The Movie call back).

"..and they've taken him to the hospital"

"The Hospital, what is it?"

"It's a big building with a lot of beds, but that's not important right now..."

and

"Looks like I picked the wrong week to give up methamphetamines"

bit of a late post contribution to this thread but was waiting for a good pic to show the boat under sail

when bought, here on a small lake in mountain japan, my boat was just known as "the nacra"

26 years old, but little used, it looked like it would clean up well, but nothing could be done to improve the uv cracked factory stickers

with a long winter it was easy enough to decided to carefully copy, enlarge and hand paint the makers name and boat type direct to the hull

about then the white tiger's head, that the sailing anarchists came up for the flying tiger, caught my eye and because it was eye catching and could just be a few black blobs of paint on a white hull i decided to paint that on too

with a "face" for the boat it now needed a name to match and with the addition of some sunglasses on the tiger head we decided on "cool cat". easy to read, understand and pronounce in a non-english speaking country

mucking around on the computer things seemed to look best if they were as big as possible, so it was decided to put big tigers heads on the bow, move the factory stuff to the stern and the fill up in between with the name

masking and painting strait lines is too much work so fonts were searched until "chiller" was found on ms word

still looking for good ideas from other boats we flogged the red lettering on the mast from the f18 capricorn

very happy with the result, makes the 4 year old hobie 16 on the same beach look old fashioned:o)
