Names or sayings on your boats?

45 posts in this topic

What name do you have printed on the rear or side of your boats? I am thinking of putting "Stimulus Package" on the back of mine! grin

My older brother and I spent the last 2 months of his life looking at boats online, we sold his car and he gave me the money to put towards the boat. After he passed I went to the boat show and ended up buying the very boat we both liked and named it "4U Mikey". My legacy to him.

Even though I dont have a sticker on mine, I call my 2007 620VS Ranger "Nasty Red" because of the custom paint I had done on it.

Three boats, official names Voyageur II, Wenonah, All-Out, names I've referred to them as from time to time can't be posted.

The "End of the Line" is what I have, the fish understand when they see it on the back when I reel them in. grin

lambjm, sorry to hear about your brother, he sounded like a pretty nice guy to do that for you. What boat did you end up getting? I'm sure he will still be fishing with you everytime you are out there! smile

I call mine the Sea Monkey. its a little 14' tinny. I parked it next to my Friend's 19' Sea Ray one day. its an awsome Bow rider with a 350 Chevy and it does about 55MPH. mines a little tinny with a 6HP johhny on the back. Sea Monkey just seemed fitting.

The best one I ever saw was on a rather beat up old tiller. Had "The Old Dock Scratcher" painted with a brush on the side. I about peed my pants from laughing so hard.

I was salmon fishing with my wife one day and I wasn't the nicest person to deal with, she demanded to name the boat this way:

I have a little puddle jumper 12' smoker craft which I have been fishing out of since 1976 when it was new. many years banging on the dock and getting dinged from gravel on the Canadian backroads and was eventually repainted to battleship grey at which time I gave her the name "The Tincan". It has stuck and that is what it is referred to as today. My parents just bought a 14' aluminum boat for use down in Florida and they named it "The Tincan too"

My 19' Alumacraft is named the Cast A Way. The 14' is called Stay A Float. Looking at new Rangers - still trying to decide if I want a single side console or the full windshield.

I was on a lake that shall go unnamed. There was a nice lakeside house and the guy/gal must've been in construction.

He had two boats under canopies. The smaller fishing boat was named "Job Order". The much larger cabin cruiser was named "Change Order".

I know there's quite an urban legend around this, but I saw it for myself. Probably lots of copy cats out there, but it's still pretty good.

    • i'll come hell ya leech!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Bureaucrate-   Correctly me if I'm wrong, weren't you a huge advocate against AIS lawd and allowing the DNR to pull over fishermen and boats for an inspection? But you are okay with them pulling over deer hunters?    Sounds like anything they do, you are against. If they said black, you'd say white...

    • Same circuit as the freezer?!! Oh no no no......!!! They kick in at the same time, and  *TRIP* Always have the pump on a separate circuit!!  As mentioned, GFCI is what code calls for, but sometimes dampness will pop one, rare, but I've seen it happen. I nixed the GFCI on mine when I ran a separate circuit for just the pump. That should solve your problem. 
    • I am from Richland Center.
      I have 2 2500 stradics in dis-repair.
      Both bales refuse to return to closed.
      Heard it may be simple as a spring.
      I am kinda cheap….if costs a lot to fix i will buy new reel. Anyone know somewhat local repair person that is reasonable?
    • Well you can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning.  
    • Another one thawing.  made this one for my nephew but will keep it for me. So will have another one in the brine in a couple days. 
    • It's a little early to be hitting the bottle don't you think?  Believe in Trump and you'll feel better.
    • Ok I'll save you from dying. Where can i pick it up? 
    • I use to work on all aluminum body fire trucks.  The only screw, bolt, washer, or nut that we would use was stainless steel as the by using anything else will allow electrolysis to start from dissimilar metals and corrode.  Only problem was the strength of the SS is not as high as regular steel.  Also if you are using SS, i would only use bees wax as a lube.  I use to buy it in a block, and just rub the threads on the screw before putting in the hole.  If you don't, you may find that the threads gall up and strip out.  Then you have issues cause it can be tough to drill out a broken SS screw.  If you have a bunch to do, i found that a combination drill/tap was very useful.  It will drill the hole and tap at one shot.  Here is what they look like.  Good luck. http://www.graybar.com/store/en/gb/combination-drill-tap-bits-22082167?cm_mmc=pla:google-_-googleshopping-_-gb5349-_-22082167&utm_source=google&utm_term=&utm_campaign=Graybar>PLA>Category&utm_medium=cpc&utm_content=fto6JW9w|pcrid|49843833890|pkw||pmt|&gclid=CPzt0MP72tACFYKSfgodC4MH_g
