Renaming Your Boat -

Pat Everyone knows that renaming your boat will bring nothing but bad luck and make your boating experience something that you will want to forget. But what happens when, after months of searching, you find your dreamboat with a name that you just cannot live with. For example, my first love was a 28-foot Alden with the most beautiful lines I’d ever seen.

She was named ? According to legend, each and every vessel is recorded by name in the Ledger of the Deep and is known personally to Poseidon, or Neptune, the god of the sea. This is an involved process beginning with the removal or obliteration of every trace of the boat’s current identity. I once went through the ceremony after the owner had assured me that every reference to his boat’s old name had been purged from her. Since then, his boat has been struck by lightning, had its engine ruined by the ingress of the sea, been damaged by collision and finally sunk! YACHT REGISTRATION or tax free boat registrations.
