RE: Changing boat name.

Our boat had one of those "clever" names playing on the brand name "Grand Banks." In our case the boat was named "Grand Destiny." The owner before had named the boat "Christopher Robin." I don't remember what the earlier names were-- they're listed on the documentation title search. Anyway, we named the boat "La Perouse." We had no ceremony at all. I made new name/nav light boards for the side of the flying bridge and new transom name and hailing port boards, put the lettering on, and installed them. That was it. The naming ceremonies are for the owners. The boat doesn't care.
