Boat names?

41 posts in this topic

Anybody still name their boat? I was thinking on it and can not for the life of me figure out what to name it. Any suggestions would be greatly accepted. If you want to see it. Page 19 of rigs for 2008. Thanks

My buddy had a boat, well more that a boat. A 32 footer that was used on Lake Superior. He named her the CINJAN. Cindy was his daughters name and Jan was his wifes name.

I got an old 14 footer that runs occasionally. I put "PUSH" stickers on the back, and "PULL" stickers on the front. That way people know what to do when she's having one of her little "temper tantrums". hehehe.

I saw a big Ranger with every top-of-the-line whistle and bell that one could put on a boat. It was hooked to a Lincoln Navigator with a custom paint job to match the metal flake of the boat and trailer. On the side of the boat was the name in at least 18 inch letters "Never Enough".

"No D... Good"

You have to look close to see it, but it is there.

Just another reminder that things you do when you are drunk and stupid stay with you for a while. I painted it on and clear coated it, so I must have ment it.

I was kinda thinkin maybe a little more possitive. My kids (11 y/o daughter and my 6 y/o boy fish with me). So far I have come up with like "Still Waters" or "Catchin'Em" I was thinking "EYE CATCHER" My wife did not really like that one. I don't know. Hopefully something will come to me.

My brother stayed with me the last 3 month's of his life, and to take his mind off his illness we researched boats on the internet. At the time I had a 1983 Starcraft that we just hated (long story), before he passed away we both decided that we liked the Lund 1650 Rebel. He sold his car and gave me the money and made me promise to buy a boat with it, so I kicked in the difference and boat the Lund Rebel. I named it " 4U Mikey ", everytime I take it fishing, I feel like he is right there with me.

Awesome story Barb, couldn't think of a better name. I'm sure he's with you everytime.

One of my grandfathers many nicknames was "Link", aka - missing link. He was one of a kind. Well when my dad bought his first boat it quickly got named "Missing Link" Each subsequent boat got dubbed missing link. A nice rememberance of my grandfather and it keeps people wondering.

One of my best friends recently inherited a big boat. He has very little boating experience and took slamming the dock once to realize boats have no brakes, lol. After watching him drive the first time he got dubbed Captain Nemo and so did his boat...

It's bad luck to have a boat with no name.

The office - this one is good in principle but it's really common.

Wet Dreams - my uncle's boat

Carson's College Fund - or your kid's name

Happy Hooker - for a fishing boat

Fuel Hater

A few years ago I bought a Sportfish fixer-upper. This boat looked like it had gone through a hurricane......so my neighbor dubbed her "Katrina". I thought it was a little insensitive at first due to all the problems in New Orleans after Katrina but it stuck.

Wo how does everyone put their names on the fishing boats? Do you just put it on the back next to the motor? I've been wanting to do it, just never got around to it. Been thinking of Lizzy Lyn after my daughter. After reading Barb's, I might have to steal a little and put "4U Dad". My Dad is still with us, but has gone through a lot and my biggest joy is taking him out whenever he's in the cities.

    • I have an old DC drake call that is deadly
    • The only form of alternative medicine that I've found to be effective is the use of leeches.  Treatment is fairly simple but almost always effective.  All I do is take the leech, put it on the end of a hook and cast it into a lake.  I start feeling better almost instantly. I've found you need to repeat treatment on a regular basis for best results. 
    • My Sister in Law died of metastatic lung cancer a few years ago.   She didn't know anything was wrong until it had already spread to her bones.    Lung cancer is one that is pretty tough to cure, since it often isn't caught early enough, among other reasons.  In the case of your mother, I would guess that the reason they didn't complete the procedure was that the cancer had already spread (metastasized) to other places, like the other side of the lung or other organs, or bones.   So it was a terminal situation at that point.   Could a more extensive evaluation, PET scans, MRI, etc spared her the surgery?   That is sure a possibility.  Did the surgery have an adverse effect on the course of her disease?  That seems less likely, although the surgery itself surely was a negative thing.    But in all cases, regardless of what the Chiros claim, manipulation of the spine to align subluxations would have done nothing to affect it at all.  Neither would Reiki,  copper bracelets, Laetrile, or an orgone box.  
    • Ha !..not so... Only bait I might fall for is a cold beer, and a chair at the computer.... #SICKHILLARY
    • Go it, I like the surgeons loop.  going to have to give that a try!   Thanks,
    • I guess you weren't watching during the nominating process.  Sure people are getting on board now.  That is irrelevant to my thesis. 
    • Thanks for the suggestion Hawg. The old window was single pane privacy glass, so all it did was let light in. I kind of figured that this will prob frost up and we have a fan that can put on it. The main reason I put it on there is because I didn't like the idea of having a piece of glass in the V on the traffic side.
    • *chuckle* That didn't take long. "What did you use for bait?" A black dude, Hillary, and a cat.
    • Keep voting democrat, Minnesota.....
