We have to change the boats name.
We have some names in mind like BALAENA, DELPHIS EPICURIUS or OFF ROAD ... but we´d like to invite the forum to suggestions.
regards from the canaries, Javier

From your post the only answer is "Question Mark"

I think I used the wrong words in my first post.
We (my family and me) bought a BW Outrange 22 ´88, and we have to change the flag and also the name of our boat.
My invitation to the forum was to suggest new names for the boat.
Please, excuse my deficient english. I can not enjoy the language in the way you do, but I´m sure we all enjoy the Whalers with the same enthusiams.
Saludos from Canary Islands, Jzf

No apologies necessary.
Most seem to name their boats after something that is dear to them. My boat is named "Murphy Girl" after what I call my dog, a female English Cocker named Murphy.

How about "Happy Whaler" that kind of conveys that you compliment each other. Just my thoughts.

Javier, four thoughts which may at least make you smile --
Estallido Del Polo
Gee hope I got the translations right -- Spanish aside from my old school translation dictionary has passed many years ago from my vocabulary --- Tom

Javier, I certainly hope you and your family are safe from the storm.
Hopefully the storm hasn't injured many, regrettable that two tourist were killed, and that the damage can be repaired quickly.

Thanks bigz for your interest, we all survived the heavy rains. It was only two days, but lot of water falling down. As you wrote some turist dies (3 germans) and we had heavy demage specially in this area. To our luck it was only rain and not strong winds or waves like normaly in this time of the year, so boats and harbours are ok. Today the turist could enjoy again the beaches and sea.
The boats are sailing again, only our “not yet name” OR, still stay on dock. She´s been fresh painted today – we´ve try to get the same colour as original one.
Kingfish, nice idea the singing reference, and wright about the birds. Even the people from main land Spain think that the name Canarias has something to do with those singing birds, but actually the name comes from the many dogs (canis in latin and can also in spanish) they found on the island when the “conquistadores” arraives.
In any case we like very much all your suggestions –thanks to everybody- we still have some time and we´ll wait bit more before we take the decision.
Saludos, Miriam y Javier.

No kidding - dogs, and not birds...well, I think this brittle old mind just got expanded a little - thank you.
