    I'm not one to open up and post a lot of goofy, emotional stuff but my wife and I had a daughter 10.5 years ago. I don't really know how to type my luck or feelings for what my wife gave me or for the love I have from my daughter. We have been on Crownlines until 3 years ago and the last was Nauti Lady. We agreed Rae of Light was a fine name for a family boat as that is her middle name. She is defiantly a light in my life.

    Kickin' Back

    Both of my kids were playing soccer when we bought this boat and both the game and relaxing were very important to us. So we wanted something that incorporated both. I had been telling my kids that taking time to "kick back" now and again since they were very young and they ended up suggesting the name. My oldest switched to football, but my youngest played soccer year round through high school and a year in college.

    My wife was named after the Rod Stewart song and it seemed the perfect name for our first boat together.... We've been owners for a whole two weeks and loving it so far!

    My recent purchase has me renaming a boat. I don't believe in that superstition however I will be doing a little ceremony and keeping a floor mat with the old name just in case.

    Old Name: "Your Money"

    New Name: "Isla Del Mar" Island of the sea

    Bought our boat in August, and we just got the new graphics installed. The Admiral cried a bit when I suggested the name as it incorporates her name. Smart Captain!

    Our Sea Ray Sundeck 240 was called Fix'n To Go. Our new Sundancer 360 is called Fix'n To Go II...

    Fix'n To... (Defined) means ... contemplating taking some sort of action. But don't count on it actually happening. As in: Fix'n to mow the lawn, or take out the trash.

    The renaming ceremonies I have heard about ALL say to NOT leave anything on the boat with the old name. Why temp fate/the Gods/Neptune/Murphy/etc......

    We had a friend who is a Minister do ours.... We found the verbiage online and used lots of salt spread around the outside of the boat.

    "Apres Ski" is a 1995 Sea Ray Sundancer 330, Twin 454 MerCruiser V-Drives
    Twin 7.4 Liter Mercruisers V-drives
    My wife and I are both pharmacists so our old Crownline 240 BR was named "DEALERx" and now we have a 1995 Sea Ray 330 Sundancer named "Apres-Ski". we are big downhill skiers and Apres-Ski means "after-ski" in French, basically its happy hour after skiing. Thought it was fitting since what do you do after skiing? you boat! our boat name inspired a new side business for us too. Check it out!

    I just heard...not to rename the boat while its on the water. God Neptune will not approve. but if done out of the water he might not know.

    Having the old name removed while dry docked.

    Our last boat was "Merri Mack", and as per the Admiral we are sticking with that name on the boat that we just closed on yesterday. We're just going to put a very small, almost like a trademark symbol, roman numeral II on it. I want to make the roman numeral so small that you won't see it from more than 30 or 40 feet.
    We are going to have some kind of renaming ceremony when we take delivery of her in the Spring.
