"Tina Marie" which is my fiancee who is the love of my life and also puts up with my crazy ideas.

Can't imagine using any other name, plus it sounds like a great name for my first boat.

Good idea. It's not as permanent as a tattoo.

My boat will be Rainha Jannota. My wife's name is Jana and "jannota" is an adjective used in Portuguese to address a well dressed and tiddy person. Rainha means queen, and as she has been the queen of the house for 36 years, the boat ended up being Rainha Jannota.

Not to worry, markpierce, we will be loving and gentle and appropriate when she reveals her identity to us. Having said that, I've always like "SNAFU MARU", seems appropriate at times.

When we bought our boat it was named Pegasus, I couldn't understand naming a slow boat after a flying horse. We changed the name to Lilli Belle because my wife's mother's name is Lilli and her dad called her Lilli Belle. We made the change shortly after they both passed.

You didn't sufficiently appreciate the irony.

Naming the boat after your wife should net you at least a couple of x-tra trips out with just the guys.

A pause for reflection and contemplation.
I fly airplanes for gas and rent money and I need that pause.

I hope to see you on the Delta this year. We are moving the boat from San Mateo to Delta Bay Marina tomorrow.

"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."

I have a boating friend who has (I think still has), a Clipper 34 - the new version of my boat, called Comfortably Numb also, and for much the same reason, I think - ie great Pink Floyd fan.
