BTY my boat is Island Hopper. Original name on the boat from 1966. Catalina Island was and still is a regular fishing/weekend destination.

I picked Seaweed, because she grows on you... and Algae is the dinghy. If I ever get a kayak I'll all it Kelp. Or a lapstrake dink will be Plankton. But for now it's just Algae and that suits us fine.

I enjoy some boat names:
Wandering Star and (the dink) Asteroid
Job Site was a center console fishing boat

Janice,

Job Site, First Draw, Tar Baby, Digger, and Retainage are usually associated with guys in construction work. The office can say, "sorry, he is out on the job site".

...Another tradition is that preferably the boat's name should start with the same letter of the owner's surname, it is just superstition in Portugal/Spain.

With Gumbo as the mother ship, I'm thinking Shrimp would be an appropriate dinghy name.

Badger was its name, and so it stays. Nothing wrong with being small, compact, belligerent, tough as nails, and single-mindedly determined to accomplish a task.

"Morning Wood", a bright red aluminum cruiser, has been plying the waters around Campbell River over the last while, and yes, is on the radio from time to time.

Can you imagine hailing a bridge, the CG, or even another vessel with this name?

1st boat name I recall was Roaring Chicken. No point just a fact.

Favorite boat name I could relate to in my early boating days: Waiting on Linda

Favorite boat name considering the owner: Pond Scum

The boat name after a bitter divorce necessitates renaming from the ex-wife is applied with a one line out of the previous name and adding the new name: Seward.

I will take credit for the last two. The last one needs the quoted post applied in case missed it.

I remember in Biloxi many years ago when some guy got divorced and she got the house and he got the boat. He had originally named the boat after her name "Ruth".
It was a simple fix. The new name became "Ruthless"

There was once a fella on Lake Erie who's boat was called "Are Souls" first couple of times you heard him being hailed was quite comical. Then I met him. Turned out it was rather appropriate.

I like that!

My boat is named for it's two primary purposes: loafing and fishing.
