The Debra D. Not my favorite name, but one of my favorite boat name graphic designs. A commercial crabber that calls at Bellingham from time to time.

Yo, Marin - And, not one mention about forward slanted windows... ahhh the beautiful power of striking female anatomy... to keep a feller focused! I agree with you, real nice boat-name artistry!

Oh, I have no issue with them on a boat that actually benefits from them, Art. Like a crabber that gets the crap beat out of it by seas/heavy spray/ice slamming into the windows in the Bering Sea during the winter. It's reverse raked windows ruining the aesthetics of a recreational cruiser that's going to see nothing more violent than gull poop or an inebriated guest's elbow whacking into the windows that gets me. Hence my coining the term wannabe windows to describe them.

Kind of clever, I thought. The deadline is of course next April to decide.

I vote for "Delfino". It would be a great name.

If I were single... those paintings would make me want to know Debra herself. I love to swim, if necessary, the fins could stay!

I think the name of a boat should speak of something special and desirable about the boat. I named one of my boats that was extremely unique a name that advertised her unique design and capabilities.

Some of the names I see on boats say nothing about the boat and are nothing but a joke. Making a boat name into a joke is the ultimate disrespect for the boat, the people that designed and built her and perhaps those that own her. When you name your boat think of something nice to say about her.

As to home port .... there is only one. Where the boat resides. Having nothing to do w where the owner resides. A self centered practice.

Don't be over offended here .. it's just an opinion.

Manyboats I agree in principle.

Some boats are so indistinguishable from others a funny clever name is a plus.

Boat Names

We had a couple of choices for the name of our GB. I wanted to use what my wife said when she learned that the offer had been accepted; "O Sh.t". As previously noted wiser heads prevailed.
So we went with "Amazing Grace", based partly on the story that our granddaughter Grace whispered to me that we needed a bigger boat. She was only 2 months old when she said that and her grandmother was in no position to argue.
Of course there is another origin for the name as well.

Please keep the name suggestions coming. I'm seeking a boat name also. Last boat was named Budds Outlet as 1) it was moored on Budd Inlet on south Puget Sound, and 2) our last name is Budd and the boat was an outlet for me from a stressful job.


Now I am retired and our new to us boat will be a hobby and activity but not a stress relief. I'm enjoying the suggested names being presented. And yes, we should be aware of the sound and impact of a boat name over the VHF. A local boat's name is Oar House. Imagine what that sounds like over VHF.

A boat at our marina in FL is named "Keepin' it Wet." Every time I walk passed it, I need to take a Tums.

We called our boat "Lollygag" because that's what we intend to do. Once our duties here are complete we don't want tight timetables (give us notice if you're getting married!) The boats name describes our behavior and intentions, we can wait for good weather.
