Ours was originally named "Amygdala" the previous owner was a Doctor. If you look up the meaning you'll understand a bit more. Didn't suit us at all, so after many cocktails we came up with something that not only reflects us a little better, but where we hail from. We've already been referred to as a couple of "Dicey" characters. Hope they ment that in a good way.

There's sometimes way-more wrapped up in a name than meets the eye!

Nope, we won't be back up until after March/April of next year. But plan on cruising the inside up to almost Alaska. Hope to be out for 7-8 months if all goes well. Must be another boat up there that has the same name, several others have asked. Hope it's not another Selene.

I don't know about that...
I went down to have a look and there are dozens with the same name.
Victoria BC
Seems like Victoria got around quite a bit.

Don't recall what it was but pretty sure it wasn't a Selene. Same spelling, just no dice or doily.

She did, but just lost her "longest serving monarch" bragging rights title to Elizabeth 2.

Greetings,
Mr. Moon. "Seems like Victoria got around quite a bit". Well up until last week (Sept 9th) , she held not only the British crown BUT also the title of the longest reigning British monarch. http://www.chroniclejournal.com/news...66a28122e.html
Aw rats! Missed it by 1 minute....

Not sure if starting a radio dialog with a 250 pound coonass tug boat captain with "Hello darling" is a wise thing.....

"Hello Bob" is much more comfortable saying.

This will cover documented vessels in the US. There is a site for Canadian vessels that I lost the link to. It does surprise me how many boats have the same name. Our new boat joins 6 other "Touch of Grey"s out there.

My past 3 boats have been named '"COMPROMISE" "I" "II" and "III" reason they were all smaller than what I intended to to purchase

My next boat will be my last I have been saving this name for my last boat she will be named ETERNITY after Arther Stace who wrote the words Eternity on the streets of Sydney for over 25 years. I still recall seen his writing with chalk and it still brings back a lump in my throat.

Good Read
ETERNITY

Our boat was originally a charter boat in St. Thomas and named Island Queen. She had that name from new (1978) until last year. It took me a couple of years to bring myself to change the name as I am a bit sentimental, but we changed it to "Walkabout". A term we learned during the four years we lived in Australia. It just seemed the perfect name for where we are at in life.

Stormy....my wife's name is Gale...named after Gale Storm. My father calls her Stormy. I was worried about tempting fate with a boat named Stormy but so far it has been calm seas....
