Thus, rules for locating name and hailing port of a recreational vessel are very flexible.
Thanks...I keep forgetting..I think they changed that awhile back to make it easier/nicer for recs...kinda like I think they are more flexible with names than they used to be because of the huge increase in documented rec boats.

The Carabao has been a friend and beast of
burden to the people in the western pacific
since their introduction in the 1600’s. Sedately
plodding along the dusty roads, these wonderful
animals were happy to pull their heavily loaded
carts. They were the island’s trucks, tractors,
and cars.

This is how I see my boat The "MV Carabao"

Our first boat was a 35 Ericson sail boat we named "Sausy Wench" for the wife and it fits.
The second boat was a 3218 Bayliner we named "Selkie Song" for the mythical creatures that live in the ocean as seals and then shed their skin when ashore to take on a human form.
The third boat is a 4588 Bayliner, it came with the name "Paloma" which means Dove. As this boat has turned out to be our sort of life boat from lifes trials it seem to fit.

The new-to-us '79 Cheoy Lee 46 LRC that will be our liveaboard/workaboard research vessel will be renamed "Traveler". My wife came up with the name as we will be traveling all over the Pacific NW producing our video cruising guides and other feature stories.

"Traveler" is also the name of a jetliner assembly step that cannot be completed per plan and so "travels" with the airplane as it moves down the assembly line. A traveler almost always results in expensive and time-consuming rework because other components that were installed per schedule often have to be removed in order for the traveler to be installed. So at Boeing a "traveler" is a Very Bad Thing.

Your trivia for the day......

I think Travler is a pretty cool name.

In my younger days I was sort of a travler.

Like the song I was born a ramblin man.

Brings back fond memories of my youth.

Nope. Just illustrating the fascination of the language. You use a word that to you conjurs up the image of a boating adventure while when I hear the same word I think of a giant f*ck up.

Ours is M/T Nest. Hopefully they don't return. If they do then I'm going to have to rename the boat. Bad Luck!!!

My son moved to Japan a few years ago and found a wonderful Japanese girl for his bride. Because of that and the fact that my family (wife, daughter, son-in-law, sons, their wives, grand-kids and our dog) will be on the boat from time to time, we picked the name "Takara Maru" which translates to "Treasure Ship" in English.

And here I thought a "Boeing traveler" was a Boeing employee who posted on internet forums while waiting in the airport for the next flight.

......sorry...I just couldn't help myself.... <grin>

That, too. At the rate we're going poor Darren's gonna have to include the dictionary definition below the name of his boat on the transom.

Dreamers Holiday. Every boat we've owned had the same name. Even though it's an old song i never really paid attention to the words untill i heard Willie Nelson sing it in the early 80's. We thought that would be a great name, because that's how we feel when cruising.
As far as documentation numbers, they're regular stick on numbers on a stringer in the engine room with a coat of varnish over them so they cannot be removed. the Coast Guard told me that was the easiest and cheapest way to do it. and i'm all about easy and cheap!

Blue Heron. We live on a Bayou called Heron Bayou and we have families of nesting Herons. We have seen them fish from our dock and have admired their grace and determination for years. The day we got back to our home port with this boat a Blue Heron was fishing the slip we had reserved. So it is appropriate.

Our 1981 IG36 came with the name "Doriana"(origin unknown) carved into 3 teak boards;it`s the original name,we toyed with "Gypsy Queen" but decided to keep it, saves lifting the little horn mast to put a coin under it to appease the name change gods.
Before I got familiar with the radio alphabet I`d tell Coastguard (called Marine Rescue here) it was like "Oriana" (well known old P&O ship) with a "D" in front of it. BruceK

Northern Spy. The first Nordic Tug built and shown at the Seattle Boat Show in 1980 was Red Apple. Northern Spy, a variety of apple, is the first Nordic Tug in Canada. The first owner was also an exploration geologist, so there was a bit of a double entendre there. Funny enough, the Northern Spy apple was discovered a few miles from where I was born and the maternal side of my family are multgenerational fruit farmers, so the name stays.
