    Boat names...-gctid362668

    With all the boats out there how does one pick a name? Virtually impossible to pick a name that doesnt already exist. My main point to all this is, how is copy-catting looked upon in the boating world? Just curious, how would one feel if you were motoring and saw the same name on someone else boat?

    IMHO its just like you said, its virtually impossible to pick a name that doesnt already exist. Just like naming your kids or your pets, you name it something that means something to you and don't worry about it.

          I swear don't call your boat obsession. I think if you called the coat guard they wouldn't know which boat to save.(sorry to you obsession owners) it seems do be one of the most common boat names. out there.

            Don't mind at all. I rode with a motorcycle club that supported and protected abused children. One of our kids said I looked like a grandpappy! It stuck! LOL

              After ruling out a few names like "Alpha Bravo", "Help Us", "We're Sinking" and several others, I named my boat after a beautiful day in the month of May.

                My 3258 was documented and I kept the name in honor of the woman that was sick with cancer and could not continue with it.

                  When I sold the 3888, a member here called me and asked if I'd mind him using the name on his boat. I had no problem with him adopting it. In fact, it was a nice compliment.

                  I have yet to see another boat bearing any of the names I've used. Maybe that means the admiral and I are picking obscure names...

                        It took us a month to find a new name for ours. We didnt like the name from the PO/PO. so we de-named it and came up with one both of us liked.. now we need to find a decal maker to make us a decal for the back of the boat in the size and color we want.

                        we chose a name that fit our life of the water and woods..

                        we have seen cute names in our harbor, then some you look and say WTF..lol

                        I love the one of the State workers boat.. he named it "Official Business".. so when he is out of town he leaves a message on his phone.. " sorry I am away on Official business".. makes you think ok, for real work or on his boat.. hmmmmm

                          While we're on the topic, does anyone have a boat similar to the 2000 Ciera 2855? I am having trouble placing lettering on the back hatch of the boat. The hatch isn't fiberglass.. it has a texture to it. How have you folks gotten around this? There's really no other alternate area on the rear that is visible.

                          I attached a photo the problematic area

                            Paint. Get an artsy friend to stencil and paint the name onto the panel.

                              I kept the PO name - basically because it was cheaper than paying for a new decal
