    Default boat name changing

    Hi guys. A friend of mine told me he heard that if you buy a boat with a name on it, its bad luck to change it. How many of you have heard this, and have any of you said "The heck with that, I'am changing it". I quess I do have a couple superstitious believes. Also any stories from the ones that did it and it proved to be a true folk-lore. Dewey

    If you don't like the name, definately change it. That superstition only applies to 19th century sailing vessels. .............

    The way I heard it from old fisherman, it is OK to change the name, but reference the old name.

    Example; Christy
    Formerly Anne Ann

    Good luck!

    It's OK not to reference it if your not going to fish out of it...........

That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"

    Default boat names

    well with a couple of little carbs on top of the blower, i'd stay away from all those flashy names in reference to going fast especially if it doesn't!
    look at a lot of the names of boats in the river racer, s/e, and m/e classes. they sound like they are wiked, but they're just lake boats.

    Well its an open bow, I would hate to get called out all the time, cuz of a flashy name. Thanks for the heads up.
