Is it wrong???

Is it wrong to name your second boat the same as your first? Is it wrong for us to have Skinny Dippin' II??

No, but it's wrong for you to have the same old avatar.

Shouldn't use the same name...be like naming two kids the same.


But #2 is very common.


To me...each big boat was obtained at a new point in my life...so each boat an appropriate name.

Both my brother, Daryl, and my other brother, Daryl, don't think it's a good idea.

LOL!

How many schooners were named "Malabar"? At least up to Malabar X, me thinks. Maybe more.

You can Skinny Dip as much as you like.

I think a boat name should say something about the boat like it's best and most significant chacteristic. I designed a boat that was very light and easy riding. Named her "Easy Rider" before the movie or the kayak. Could have named her "Light Rider" ect.

Boat names shouldn't be jokes and the home port should be where the boat berths .. having nothing to do w where the owner lives. It's about the boat not the bloke that owns her.

The above being my opinion not shared by many .. unfortunately perhaps most. Just an opinion.

However (also my opinion) avatars should be a sign that identifies you and perhaps says something about you or/and your boat. Changing avatars makes it difficult for others to know when a post is by you. Whether or not I read a post or not has a lot to do w who wrote it.

I think it somewhat depends on whether you let the new owner of your old boat keep the name. If I was going to run a series of Skinny Dippin's then I'd require the purchaser to choose a new name.

While this is a good point, you as the previous owner have no legal rights to keeping the new owner of a vessel from using the same name unless you actually copyright it.

Actually you do if you put it in the sales contract as a condition of the sale. That is often done by yacht owners. Otherwise, you don't have any rights over it. Most purchasers are more than willing to agree to it if it's done up front.

I know of boats that were sold in our harbor with a contractural condition of the sale that the boat's name would not remain the same because the sellers were going to apply the name to their new boat. In some of these cases the name was simply transferred to the new boat; there was no II or III added to the name.

But... there is a large yacht in our marina named Mary's Promise IV. The same owner has had the same name on three previous yachts with II and III after the name on the second and third yacht. So far as I know there was no legal requirement preventing the buyer from retaining the name although it's a pretty specialized name in this case.

We have a slightly different situation with the same name on two boats at the same time.

If the boat is to be documented, be sure the name and port use fonts (style and size) acceptable to the USCG.

Main thing I'd say is to remember how many times you're going to have to say the name you choose over public airwaves and to people directly. Plus it needs to be one easily understood and not offensive. No R - Rated. No double entendre, as much as we generally love them. I'd also attempt to avoid one of those names that hundreds have already chosen.

Most popular names 2013

1. Serenity
2. Second Wind
3. Island Girl
4. Freedom
5. Pura-Vida
6. Andiamo
7. Island Time
8. Irish Wake
9. Happy Hours
10. Seas the Day

2012

Island Time
Seas the Day
It's About Time
Liberty
Serendipity
Second Wind
Dolce Vita
Aquaholic
The Good Life
Nauti Buoy

2011

Seas the Day
Nauti Buoy
Aquaholic
Dream Weaver
Pegasus
Serenity Now
Second Wind
Liquid Asset
Miss Behavin'
Blew By You

2010

Aquaholic
Andiamo
The Black Pearl
La Belle Vita
Mojo
Island Time
No Worries
Second Wind
Serenity
Ohana

And the top fad name in 1987 we owe to Gary Hart, "Monkey Business".

For the most part, it is easy to differentiate between recreational/"toy" boats among commercial/"real" boats by their names.
