    Calling Wiskey Wizard/re-namming boat.-gctid380205

    Mike,

    the wife and I are re-naming our 38. For years we have always loved your old 38's name of Perfect Balance; it explains everything. . We have delayed re-naming the boat for well over two years because we fell silly "stealing" perfect balance and can not come up with anything that compares.... We need to ask you personally and every other BOC'rs opinion on this.

    Mike, your opinion on this will most likely determine what we name the boat so please be honest... Everyone else I would love to hear your thoughts as well and will be appreciated..

    We have a short list of names that we like also (posted below). I would love to get your opinions and suggestions for new names so please let us know what you think!

    Perfect Balance

    Simply Better

    Simply Perfect

    Anejo

    Outlaw

    Gun Slinger

    six Shooter

    Our choice

    Jacqueline Renee (wife's first and middle name)

    Pacifica

    Please suggest names and comment on your favorite of the ones listed! Thank you in advance!

    First, I don't think you should feel badly about taking Perfect Balance. It might be different if we were in the same club.

    Of the others you're considering, I think Jacqueline Renee is great too. I think there's something special in following the old tradition of naming your girl after your lady. And Jacqueline Renee has a nice ring to it.

    Pacifica sounds great too.

    What does Anejo mean? I don't know the word. Is it something special to you?

      I'm sure Mike would also let you use the previous name of his Tiara as well - "Numb Nuts"

      (who could forget that one..)

          Mike,

          Thanks for the reply.. Anejo means aged.. the good expensive Tequila's that are aged at least 6 months are "Anejo the next step down is repisado which is aged about 3 months etc.. We kind of liked the the play on "aged'..

          We really love perfect balance just wanted to get everyone's thoughts before making such a move..

            I remember the threads well... I also remember the thread of having to call the coast guard and saying that name.. Numb Nuts is hysterical but I would have changed it too..

                OK trivia buffs (y PescoTonto): A├▒ejo does not mean aged. It means supplemented or annexed as in enhanced. A├▒ejo Tequila is enhanced by the supplemental process of ageing in oak, usually used whiskey barrels, for a minimum of one year. That adds colour and flavour. So the result adds age but the meaning of a├▒ejo is "supplemented" like the annex to a building is supplemented to the building.

                  My 2 cents is that you should just keep perfect balance if you love that name. However, if you feel compelled to change it, maybe you can keep a little of the original, and add a little something new...maybe "Still Perfect."

                      Ron is soooo right. I have no idea why, but Numb Nuts remains available.

                      Any takers?

                        Funny thread.

                        I am also thinking of a name change to personalize my first motoryacht to reflect life's path that brought us together.

                        I have been told it is REALLY bad luck to change a vessel's name.

                        Sometung about getting a virgin to pee in the hold works to kill the bad mojo.

                        Thoughts please.

                        BTW - Loving my first ever speing owning a motoryacht. I am hooked!!

                          If there is, it would be a perfect reflection of the owner.

                            On the other hand I have always just changed it and never had any bad luck.

                              That made me spit wine thru my nose! Nobody can ever accuse this group of not having quick wits and a good sense of humor.

                              I really like Perfect Balance too, although "Adios Dineros" still qualifies as one of the great boat names of all time. Be sure you use Wiskey Wizard's renaming ceremony--he graciously sent it to us when we rechristened ours and we've had nothing but blue skies and smooth sailing since.
