My previous boat was named Triple Trouble, after our three kids.

Before that we had one named "Irrational", which my wife thought was a very appropriate name for a boat given about of money and time they absorb ...
And the name of a fine dive equipment mfg.

After a year debating we finally came up with the name PurDee.
Simply three letters of my wife's last name Pursel and three letters of my last name Dees.

Our boat is named Catalina Jack. Not catalina the sailboat. Catalina refers to the Navy PBY aircraft that was a flying boat used extensively in World War 2. My father was a waste gunner on a Black Cat in the South Pacific. His name was Jack.
I am 70 years old and I still miss him dearly. He died in 1974 at the age of 53. The boat is obviously named in his honor.

“Hye Won” is our daughter’s S. Korean name and what we always name our cruising boats.
