    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.
    Leaning heavily to Perfect Balance but have not Pulled the trigger just yet..

    Mike would love and appreciate the renaming Ceremony!

      I wonder if there is more than one ceremony.

      The link I posted in a previous post is one.

          I like your current name and agree with others, there are big superstitions about renaming a boat and the need to do it properly. I think it is bad luck to give a boat a negative name ("Moneypit" etc.).

          A friend saw a gorgeous 60-foot yacht named "AFTICA." The owner was coiling a rope and my friend asked him the origin/language/meaning of the name. The owner said "It stands for 'Another F***ing Toy I Can't Afford.' " Pretty funny, but not my style...

          Thanks for letting us chime in!

                I agree....We named one of our previous boats "Money Eater"....and she really lived up to her name...

                next boat was "My Escape". We had to keep with the M. E. theme in the because we really like and wanted to keep the dinghy name. Dinghy name is "Mini ME"

                I also think Perfect Balance is a good name to use.

                  I love "Mini ME" for the dingy. Our boat is "Sea Harmony" (my husband and I met on eHarmony, although I usually tell people I bought him on eBay) and we named the dingy "Wee Harmony".

                      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.

                        Don't believe wikipedia for everything. Remember it is a user entered encyclopedia that gets corrected as it grows. Do some more research on google or ask a native speaker. You will soon find enough info to dispute wiki.

                              I would like to add some names I┬┤ve seen in europe.

                              My boat is named El Barco, because we couldnt come up with a name.

                              There is also the Italian La Barca

                              Shooting Star

                              Vega Star

                              Altair

                              Chanel

                              Sea Bird

                              Black money

                              Fulton

                              Just for inspiration
