"N-rage", "Scholar-ship", "Outragous-Payment","Foam Sandwich", "BMW W/O the M","Nutregous", And everyone refers to their "Whaler" as the "Whaler" but I've never seen one with the name..... "WHALER"!

Why not work in the New England accent with “Fish Fawthaar” or “Fishing Fawthaar?” (Not sure how you would spell the local pronunciation!) Let them guess if it’s fish father or fish farther!

I too have a 1985 OR in search of a name... I have two children and my youngest wanted me to name my boat, well, " Sponge Bob "
You know, “He lives in a pineapple under the sea...absorbent and porous and yellow is he… if nautical nonsense is something you wish.. then drop on the deck and flop like a fish…Sponge Bob Square pants…" If you have children and cable TV then you know the rest...
Oh, I’ve decided against this one…its yours if you like…

Had a friend who splurged and bought a 57' yacht. I suggested Mr. Greenspan's "IRRATIONAL EXUBERANCE" ....
Would not be very audible over the VHF.

Hold on a second, Capt...
What's wrong with "CORNCHOWDER".
Kinda like it plus it'll serve as a final, ominus warning and cause second thoughts in those guests prone to "chumming the fish" while at sea!

The previous owner of my boat gave me only one piece of advice and that was: ***Don't let your kids name the boat!*** I've gotten the 'Chuckie' off the side now. Chuckie was apparently a cartoon character from the late 80's.
Spouses get a shot, although every name my wife has proposed so far has been laden with a certain amount of negativity. So much so that I suggested that we call the boat the 'Kate' after a girlfriend from the distant before time, and a name the spouse was sure to dislike. That got a laugh.

Ok, I'll let out the name I have on my little 13'er..."PEA POD"...2 peas in a pod..2 daughters..now you need 2 more Whalers so they can have their own!:) Regards,

Do you have a bigger boat ? if you do, like ours is Heaven Sent...thus the name for my whaler, Lil' Sniff. You can do something like that....I like the name J.A.Z.Z. ; or the Kat, or Jezebel....but heres what you gotta do! Get the feel of the boat and the name will come to you.

I've been tickled for a couple of years with the idea of naming a boat with a play on words on "aficionado" (enthusiast); you know, like, "A Fishin' Otto".
But, with your kids being girls, and their names most likely not being Otto, I guess it probably doesn't work here...

Are they into Harry Potter?
My son wanted to name our boat "Snitch" after the difficult to catch Golden Snitch of Hogwarts fame. He said it was because the boat was so hard to find(we dragged him around to see a bunch0 and that it looked fast. However, if your not into Harry Potter it is not so appealing.

Mine is Jacqueline, after my daughter, so perhaps you could merger your girls name into something...

Consider "Alert" (the model name for my CPD 17), as that is the state at which you will have to be maintained when the girls ask for the car keys or the credit card!

Capt: What was your final decision?

How about "Third Daughter"
I always liked "Moby" as in Moby Dick.

(Note: I’ve been thinking about this boat name business and am amused by the direction is has taken. My thoughts that follow are meant to be humorous and NOT offensive to anybody. I specifically pick on lhg only because I know he can take it. They are to be read as tongue-in-cheek)
How would history read if this convention were used in the days of old?
If the Pilgrims had come over on the Mayflowerpower would the rest of the world think us all a bunch of hippies? (perhaps they do anyway)
If our Navy used this method of naming our glorious warships might the first naval engagement between ironclad ships during the Civil War have been fought by the Sinkin’ Lincoln and the Ker-Pow!?
Current day destroyers might be named things like the USS Shoot-M-Up or perhaps the USS This-Gun’s-4-U
I think the idea of naming CaptCornchowder’s boat for his daughters is fine. Many a commercial fishing vessel is named in honor of a mother, wife or daughter.
But really, isn’t asking for help naming one’s boat kinda’ like asking for help making love to one’s wife? Seems to me a boat’s name is better if it’s dignified and personally significant not corny like WhaleLure.

"Sarindipidy"... very good but if I were Erin, I'd be pretty mad at you!

Take a look at the requesters name (CaptCornchowder) If thats not corny.??... Possibly thats why people gave the responces displayed above...
Sorry Jimh, I digress a bit to far once in awhile...

Thank you everyone, Your names were a lot of fun. I personaly think asking for a boat name is perfectly appropriate. As for Tom's coments,I served proudly in the U.S Navy on ships with names one might think odd or comical but I tell you now there was nothing odd or comical about thier mission.
Thank you all for your input.
P.S. still looking for a name.
