Is it bad luck to rename/re-christen a boat?

A lot of sailors I know believe this to be true, including me!

It is ok to rename a boat if you paint the "old" name on the bottom. NEVER EVER NAME A BOAT AFTER YOUR WOMAN!!!you will lose her! Could be fable, could be true, you never know.

Tarbaby, is that you will loose her (the boat) or her (your woman) on coyuld be a blessing and one could be a disaster.

TahoeChris,

My wife and I went through this delemna when we recently purchased our "new" '78 Montauk. We did a little WEB searching and came up with some interesting info at http://www.boatsafe.com/nauticalknowhow/rename.htm Being new to this forum, I hope its acceptable to post another site's URL as long as its pertinent to the discussion.
