Hi All,

Long time lurker and sailor, about 6 years ago my wife and I decided to build a Tug. We managed to find a steel hull that was in need of a new cabin and just about everything else. This is where I need your help, she needs a name!

This is where we are now with the boat, It's been a lot of work. I am going to put together a new thread with the whole demo/rebuild.

Very nice job. Don't have a suggestion for a name except don't use something difficult to pronounce or spell. Some lock masters or bridge tenders don't appreciate that. I remember once seeing a sailboat named "Zubenelgenubi" (Arabic name of a star)
It would probably take a week to get her across the Mississippi River at New Orleans.

Wow! She looks beautiful, Andrew. Nice shine in the interior. I maintain to a lower, more comfortable level.

I agree with simple names easily pronounced on the radio. The best are 2-3 words or syllables with a distinct difference between them. This helps in the radio recognition. Local references or locales within the name may not be a problem locally, but may present a challenge when heard on the radio hundreds of miles from home.

Avoid confusing names like:
"Fairy Godmother" that could be confused as a ferry.
"Heyday" that could be confused with Mayday.
"Host Card" confused with Coast Guard
"Merry Mary" that you can't tell which end is which!

I have a friend who named his boat, "Bot" with a long vowel line above the O, denoting the pronunciation of the word boat. Every time he called on the radio, he had to spell his boat name..."this is Bot...B O T." Not good.

The FAA used similar criteria in approving radio call signs for airlines. In their case, brevity and clarity were paramount concerns.

Very nice work - looking forward to the rebuild thread.
Really need to know more about your hobbies, interests, etc for names, but first thoughts are...

Done Sail'n
Knot 4 Sail
Deja Vu

Happy cruising - eh?

B Side

In keeping with the 2nd chance theme....post-restoration now is like you're playing the B side of the record. Well, that's what popped up in my head anyway!

Beautiful job. I'll be checking out your thread on what you started with and how it came to look so nice!

I HAVE TO SAY THAT I REALLY LIKE THE NAME! IT ROLLS OFF THE TONGUE EASILY & IT'S VERY IMAGINATIVE.

Nice job on the refurb, and welcome aboard. How about "DIY'er". That might be a mouthful on the radio though.


Or how about Little Toot?
