Default Renaming a boat

Since I am on a roll with posts tonight:

I plan on renaming my boat if I decide to fix it. So, how many are superstitious about renaming a boat. Anyone have stories to share as well?

Go for it. That is only "yachts". I have changed the name on my boat and my uncle has changed several boats names with no adverse effects.

Don't do it, you'll die. Once you rename a boat, it's guaranteed to sink.

My buddy took the name off his scarab and lost an outdrive shortly after. However they had lunched an out drive previous to that as well while the name was still there. Take it for fwiw.

Just keep something on the boat (hide it somewhere) with the original name.

Unless it's named "Cock Gobbler" or something similar, don't do it.

Make sure you rename it "Titanic II" or "The Unsinkable" or "Always Floats" or something to that effect, that way if/when it goes down, someone can take pictures for the irony factor.

names on boats are gay.

Unless you have a 30'+ boat with twins & superchargers then Panty Dropper is a good choice.
