What's in a name?

The local coast guard station is only a quarter mile from my berth (the coasties zip by whenever I'm in the strait); however, I heard they only*inspect boats containing beautiful women or boaters who*look like they could harm themselves or others.

*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?

She was first documented in 1965, I've had the same document renewed annually since 2004.* Why she had no numbers I have no clue, but when I bought her she was an empty canoe, so if they were there, they were very well hidden.* As in invisible.

I don't think the Coasties take that regulation as seriously as they might, perhaps realizing that anyone with a grinder and an engraver can make up a new number and put it whereever they want it.* My numbers clearly don't meet the regulatory test, but they don't seem to care much.* Mark's may not either, but I would be surprised if any official ever objects.

******** Mark,* As nice as your plaque is, and I doubt if anyone would challenge it, I* tend to agree it wastes valuable bulkhead space.

A more traditional approach would have to have the numbers carved or affixed to a main deck beam.

Usually in a place you see as soon as you open the engine hatch.

The numbers on my boat are glued to the inside of the transom on some crude plaque.* Not nice at all

Okay I am a bit jealous.******* JohnP

RE: What's in a name?

I made up a board, routed the numbers in it, and screwed ot onto the beam you duck your head under going down to the galley. Looks good, but you don't notice it unless looking for it.

*I don't think "clearly visible" means that it has to be visible when someone steps inside the boat.* I think it means that when you go to wheverver the number is permanently affixed it has to be clearly visible.** As opposed to being hidden behind a piece of machinery, covered by another structural member, dirty and hard to read, etc.* As I mentioned earlier, a lot of GB owners have their documentation numbers deeply carved into the permanent beams in the engine room that support the* main cabin sole, or engraved directly to an engine stringer or onto a plate that is then welded to an engine stringer.* The point here is that when you go into the engine room the documentation number is "clearly visible."* In our case, the number that is carved into the teak board fiberglassed to the inside of the transom in the lazarette is very much "clearly visible" when you lift a lazarette hatch and look in.

We've been boarded twice by the USCG and each time when they asked if the boat was documented (which I suspect they already knew before they came aboard) they asked to see the paperwork and then they asked to see the number on the boat.* We directed them to the lazarette, they went back and opened a hatch and looked in, and they came back and said "Perfect."

In your case, Mark, since the USCG is close by, you can always ask them to come and take a look at what you have, or show them your photo, and get their opinion.* If they say it's fine, then it's fine :-)

Admit my numbering isn't a good example of proper USCG documentation numbering, but I'm not going to lose any sleep over it.

The number must be "permanant" , glued boards work , screwed does not meet the requirements.

What's in a name?

I'll bite.

Our new-to-us trawler will be named C:\[ESC] (pronouncing it Sea Escape). It is a nod to my computer programming background and career. Like I said in my intro, my wife is a bit worried that it screams "there go the geeks".. but I am one.

At the same time it references the reason we have a boat in the first place -- it is our escape;* An escape from the everyday hustle and bustle of work, school, chores, etc. Our boats have always been our vacation home - a floating reprieve from normal life, just 20 minutes down the freeway.

Our previous boats were all named Comfortably Numb. This was primarily a reference to the first date my wife and I ever went on -- a laser light show of Pink Floyd's The Wall. It was also we felt aboard in the PNW : since we cruise year round, the rain can be numbingly cold... but the boat still made it comfortable. We never had a problem with any drug connotations either.

Our Gulfstar 36 came with the name "Pygmalion Too", which has absolutely no meaning for us. As we restore her, we will wait for inspiration from her and change the name. So far, the most obvious has been Little F***er, but I'm sure she will show her sweet side to us.

"Kismet" was her name when we purchased her and the name was perfect. The admiral and I both knew (and loved) the definition. It's an Indian term meaning "fate or destiny". Needless to say, the name stuck. We actually requested/required that the name convey in the sale....
