RE: What's in a name?

Our boat will be called RAINHA JANNOTA. Rainha means queen in Portuguese and Jannota is the nick name of my wife in her house, since she was born. She is my queen because she has been a mother, a father, a friend, a partner, a lover, a wife, and now a mate... no one deserves to be honored in our boat more than she does!

RE: What's in a name?

What the heck, as a first post I might as well join in. When we were looking for our current boat/home (we live aboard) we were making a list of all the names we could come up with. When we finally found out 41' President only one name kept comming out on tom. The one that stuck is Knot Knormal. Everyone that know me thinks it is quite appropriate. As to the dink? It's name is Knear Knormal.

It's my wife's 60th birthday this weekend. May I* have permission to steal your words? Our boat, too, is named after my friend, stepmother to my children, life partner, lover, wife, and* mate, with both a capital "M" and small "m". (and, less I forget, the "Admiral").

*Welcome to the Forum Marty.

Boat name Moonstruck.* Dinghy name Moonbeam.

Have no idea where those names came from.

RE: What's in a name?

No boat, presently...but its already named. My wife has a thing for sea turltes. They're all over the house and even on the outside of the house right under our street number, (big scortched copper thing, really neat). On our honeymoon this past May, she got a little sea turtle tattoo on her ankle. We hadn't made the connection yet, but it was very appropriate since we just became a "family". The next boat will be named "Ohana" and the dingy will be "Lill' Ohana II".

What's in a name?

Scooter

As a sailboater used to crawling along at 6 kts, I was really taken when the Californian 34 we were looking at hit 24kts during the sea trial. Inane as it was, my comment "Really scoots along" stuck. Hence the name Scooter; also easy to say on the radio, 'specially when things are turning to mush & neither your brain or tongue are working really well.

RE: What's in a name?

I'm assuming that most of the vessels represented here are docummented. What is involved in changing the registered name of a docummented vessel...other than the time honored maritime ritual, sacrifices to the gods, etc?

*The requirements are pretty straightforward as listed by the previous poster.* One thing that can be helpful is that if the vessel you buy is already documented and you choose to document it as well, the documentation number will stay the same.* While our boat has had a different name under each of the prior owners the documentation number has stayed the same for all of them and us as well.* The nice thing about this is that the documentation number that is permanently attached to the boat doesn't have to be replaced.

For example a previous owner or our*boat---*perhaps the original owner---*had the documentation number carved into a large teak plank and then had this plank solidly fiberglassed to the inside of the transom in the lazarette.* Even though we changed the name of the boat, we submitted the documentation papers as soon as we got the boat so the number remained the same and that big teak plank still satisfies the "permanently affixed" part of the documentation requirement.

That decorative piece of woodwork stuck to the interior paneling doesn't look like it is a permanent marking of the hull so that its removal or alteration would leave obvious marks.

It could easily be replaced in minutes with a picture of Fido or another number engraved on a slightly larger piece of wood velcroed to the bulkhead.

A steel vessel should have the official number welded onto the structure.

*I suspect that the nice plaque in Mark's photo doesn't actually satisfy the requirement.* The teak plank in our boat is a fairly rough-hewn thing about four or five feet long*with the letters and numbers deeply carved into it and the whole thing is heavy glassed to the inside of the transom.* There is nothing decorative or pretty about it--- it's just a big plank that would take*a lot of cutting and hacking to remove and its removal would be very obvious from the shredded fiberglass on the inside of the transom.

A common location for the documentation numbers in Grand Banks boats is to carve it deeply into the permanent floor beams under the main cabin sole.* Another popular location is to have it engraved, either directly or on a plate that is then welded to an engine stringer.

I think not, Rick.* Requirements do not vary among wood, fiberglass, steel, aluminium, etc. boats.* Rip Fido's sign off and I guaruntee you a scar.

I think they're just jealous, Mark. I wish mine looked as nice. Just be safe, you could always write it on the hull in a sufficiently discrete place with a Sharpie.

You're right, Al, but I highly doubt any government official will challenge the Coot's engraving.*

Give me an air-powered chisel and I*probably can*make any engraving disappear quickly.

*Regardless of what you might think:
<pre>46CFR67.121</pre><pre>The official number of the vessel, preceded by the abbreviation
``NO.'' must be marked in block-type Arabic numerals not less than three
inches in height on some clearly visible interior structural part of the hull.
The number must be permanently affixed to the vessel so that alteration,
removal, or replacement would be obvious.
If the official number is on a separate plate,
the plate must be fastened in such a manner that its removal would normally cause some
scarring of or damage to the surrounding hull area.


If the decorative paneling on your boat is structural or is part of the hull
you certainly have bigger issues to think about.</pre>

*I'm sure that's true, however, Delfin was built in Norway, came directly to the U.S.*and for 40 years never seemed to need to have her numbers since when I bought her as a shell there weren't any.* I just had a sign company make up the number, affixed it to a bulkhead in the ER and clear lacquered over it.* It sure doesn't seem regulation to me, but I have been inspected twice and each time, the Coastie just looks at them and moves on.* Perhaps I'll meet a stickler some day, but so far, no.

*Unless you work the boat commercially there is no regulation requiring you to have it documented so that is not surprising. Why spend the money for a document if you don't have to unless to avoid plastering it with state numbers?

My only point was that posting a picture of an official number stuck to wood paneling in the wheelhouse of all places as an example of how it is supposed to be done is a bit lame.

Besides, that area is a great place for the clock, barometer, and clinometer.
