My opinion: If it's a trailer boat, it's too small for a name.

What ever they come up with....use it or a derivitive of both their names. It will be much easier when you need to buy the next one and you can name it XXXXX II

I also don't believe in putting a name on it. Like mentioned trailerable boats are too small. Just personal preference I guess.

Smile boat names

I have owned trailered boats for forty years and have seen thousands with names on them. I think it is a personalizing love for the boat and is great. Wife combines her name and mine and came up with Laceva.

Maybe tell us -- IS it a "trailer boat" or not (As for some members - that seems to be important).
It sure doesn't make any diff. to me - it's your boat - you want to name it - go ahead.........

It's a Lund 186 Pro V GL. My daughter wants to name it Slice of Life. She's loves the show Dexter, lol.

Many larger vessels are named after their significant others - - - - many just use their boat name over the ship-to-shore/phone/websites/e-mail and not actually past it on the boat itself.

I thought about naming mine "No patients". A little play on words to describe my personality and the fact that if Im on the water I have no patients that day.

I thought about naming mine, My Mistress. Cause I like to by her pretty things and I always tell her I wish I could spend more time with her.
