Picking a new name for our tug

Our new (to us) little Sundowner 30 tug needs a new name. At the moment she is called Walrus, I don't think it suits her at all.


This might be a mistake but here goes:
Suggestions?

Something that sounds strong and steady. Atlas. Simba. Zeus. Hercules. John Henry.

Sorry, Weebles is taken.

What are your interests? The boat name should mean something to you.

Yeah I think it’s a mistake but not uncommon. Threads like this on the hull truth all the time. This site’s a little more sophisticated? I’d say, so you won’t get ya know aquaholic or nauti girl or balls deep or happy hooker . Still I think it’s far too personal a choice to ask strangers, even though you will rightly take their input on canvas color or anchor choice. No offense to any nautigirls out there.

Nice boat btw. She’ll help you more than we can

Our current boat was named Nauti-Girl with a nude mermaid between the names holding a martini glass. We ran the boat home about 7 hours and I went into the garage and got the heat gun and removed that name. The next day I put Black Dog on the boat, better!

I think the name is already in your profile: Snohomish. It’s radio friendly and not likely to turn off a future purchaser.

Just be aware there is a commercial tug with that name, currently moored in Everett; something you should check for with any name ideas.

Or, just a simple play on the brand: Sun Tug.

Far too many Aquaholic, Journey, Nauti Girl, Happy Hooker, Pegasus, Seas the Day.

Ladies first names can work well. Is there a person you might want to honor by putting their name on it?

Nice, Snohomish is going to be her hailing port.
