We're both lifelong boaters. Me, power and sail. My wife Sea Hag, strictly sail. We named our Grand Banks "Change of Heart" ...as in my wife previously telling me "I would never own a power boat". Sheesh...what a snob.

Ad Lib

Although we picked the name based on the last definition below, the others seem to apply as well:

Ad Lib

noun; something done without plan Their weekend cruise was a successful ad lib.
adverb; performed without plan It was an ad lib anchorage.
adjective; as much or as often as desired They cruise on an ad lib basis.
Music; in an improvised manner with freedom to vary tempo and instrumentation

We considered Traveler for our new Albin ( my younger brother now deceased) is named Travis. For me it made all the sense but upon further discussions I believe we are leaning towards Adios or Cynbad. I for one am very nervous about changing name... Suggestions?

If you are doing a renaming, then make sure you take all precautions to do it properly. Here are some URLs on boat renaming: (http://www.bluewatersailing.com/docu...ngceremony.pdf, Renaming Your Boat - BoatSafe.com) Please trust me on this. I had made the mistake of speaking the new name I was going to give to the sailboat I had just bought while on board her. Poseidon must have overheard and I had a number of problems till I did a proper renaming ceremony. (PS Don't skimp on the alcohol or the gods could get angrier.)
When I bough my current (new) trawler, my wife and I decided to keep the boat's original name to avoid any problems. So far, so good.

I was voting for "Tug This" but the wife wouldn't have it.
It came as "Lady Bug" but even my older sister out in California
laughed and said, "You're not exactly a lady bug kinda guy."

When we bought the boat, we decided it was cheaper to just keep the name. Got rid of the Deleware registration location listed underneath.

Last boat was Persephone... Canadian boaters of my vintage will recall Beachcombers....

Apparently our trawler has had several names over the years, but we decided to keep "Delia Rosa" as she was named after the previous owner's two grandmothers... we were lucky that there was no other Delia Rosa in the Canadian Registry system as in Canada "registered" boat names need to be unique!

Compromise

It's a boat, but not a sailboat.

"Yip Yip", the fourth boat of that name in the family with the first dating to 1919. The first boat was a skiff owned by my grandfather and his brother. The exact origin of the name has been lost, but it would seem that it may have derived from the vernacular of the era. My grandfather served in the Army Signal Corps during WWI and was likely stationed at some point at Camp Upton on Long Island, NY. Irving Berlin, as a sergeant, helped produce a show at the camp called "Yip Yip Yaphank". (Yaphank was the nearby town.) The show was a revue with soldiers playing the various roles. Berlin later produced a show during WWII called "This is the Army". The story of the production of that show was made into a movie of the same name in 1943.

I can't say I worry too must about encountering another boat of the same name.

Our boat came with the name "Paloma" meaning Dove in Italian and as it turns out Spanish. We are descended from neither but we like the name and the graphics. So it will do. Besides we are hoping for peaceful seas and cruises.

Boomarang was the boat's name when I purchased it. It is a variation on the normal spelling of boomerang. I didn't care much for it.

The PO told me he wasn't too happy with the name either until he found out it was named Boomarang because "it always comes back." When he heard that, he decided not to change it.

Not wanting to tempt fate, or Neptune, I began to appreciate the odd name too.

Besides, explaining it makes for interesting conversation on the docks.

"Meander" because the boat came with the name, 3 name boards, monagrammed towels, napkins, and duffle. It also seemed to fit and we didn't have anything better in mind.

You could go with something along those lines as a little nod to this area's past "Drift Reefer" could be a little backward nod to the "Square Grouper"

Ours is Beachcomber, named after my style of boating. We like to explore new areas and walk the beaches. It also was my CB handle way back in the 70's.
