I`d like it convey what was achieved, to everyone, whether members when it happened or not. "Dauntless" would do that in a way, even without knowing about this voyage. It would be a courtesy to get Richard`s agreement to using the name of his boat.

TF Designation for Ocean Crossers

We've got quite a few Nordhavn owners and various other members boats capable of this much blue water time. Has anyone else here done a similar trip in their own power boat? San Francisco to Hawaii would certainly qualify or ???

"Captain of a remarkable passage"

Bestowed upon the captain for completing a remarkable passage. This is defined as a passage that was deemed of an extreme or exceptional nature do to the size and limitations of the vessel, and the duration and / or arduous nature of the passage. As an example: A passage from Norfolk, VA to Bermuda on a 250' yacht wouldn't qualify. The same passage on a 30' Willard trawler wins you the title and our deep respect.

Absolutely. If the forum were to lean this way, that would be the thing to do. I would think he would see it as an honor, and a VERY well deserved one. But best to check.

While I admire the voyage...it's in the present.

Someone else mentioned that past members, present members and future members may have done similarly BEFORE this current trip.

If ya'all want to honor the crew of the Dauntless have at it...great idea...but if it is to be an award for something bigger past this one voyage...shouldn't that override just the present?

That's true too.

And to me Dauntless is inspiring... To be dauntless is an achievement not all can manage, but for those who do something remarkable, I suspect being called Dauntless would be an honor.

1585-95; daunt + - less

British Dictionary; definition for dauntless:

Adjective: bold; fearless; intrepid

Dauntless being "The Word" itself then used as a prefix-adjective is ample to be affixed to any brave sea-soul who accomplishes nearly miracle feats with rather small power boat or gear and belongs to TF. Just happens that Richard's boat name is the same... to get this ball rolling! Thank you Richard!!

Levels of accomplishment sufficient for award and suffix-words regarding said award's type/reason would need to be ironed out by TF member votes and/or TF official overseers, e.g.:

- Dauntless “Ocean Crosser” - - > Richard/Julie Bost!!
- Dauntless “Great Lakes Journeyer” - ???
- Dauntless “Full Craft Restorer” (I herein nominate Matt of Australia for that title)
- Dauntless “Speed Boat Developer/Racer” (If he belonged to TF I’d nominate Howard Arneson for that title)

I am in with Dauntless becoming root word for TF awards going to exceptional people who accomplished exceptional doings regarding marine/boat/sea-travel life!

Happy Tittle-Award Daze! - Art

I just picked up on Richards adventure and read through all the posts, quite a thing to do alone. I think a name like Offshore Warrior or Blue Water Warrior would be suitable considering what he's going through right now.

A few navy (any country) types might have a giggle or two over the use of "warrior"...

You're probably right, but he's in a battle just the same. Ever heard the phrase battling the elements.

The first crossing mostly under steam would be 1831 SS Royal William.

Greetings,
Mr. DCBD. With all due respect, anyone who willingly goes to sea with a mind to do battle has already lost IMO. Battling the elements to be sure (snow, wind, rain, hail, tornado's, hurricanes etc.) but the sea is not an element and can be a cruel mistress.

I agree totally, but who said he went to sea with a mind to do battle. I never said that, but if anyone plans to cross oceans and is not prepared to battle the elements (snow, wind, rain, hail, tornado's, hurricanes etc.) excluding the sea (correct, not an element but certainly a factor) has also already lost. IMO.

Planning is everything , a few sail folks have circumnavigated and not seen winds of over 35K.

They used the right route , the right time of year, and did their homework.

Okay

Passage Maker wasn't going to work for many as it was just too ambiguous a term, that and I was tired of dodging the tomatoes being hurled my direction for reminding folks of the magazine. Several where submitted but through many variations one seemed the most liked and it was Ocean Crosser.

Many thought his boat was aptly named as evidenced by its current voyage thus prompting Dauntless in honor of it. As the name Dauntless is a trait admired by many and has an apropos double meaning that would make it relevant to future new members whom have never seen this thread. Ocean Crosser lacks ambiguity and needs no explanation.

Richards own wishes where heard on this and he figured it best for us to decide thus this thread so....

What do you folks think of "Dauntless Ocean Crosser"?

Here is what it looks like for those who wish to see it as it would appear on a post of his. Trawler Forum - View Single Post - Itís Showtime
