What's in a 'Boat' Name?

Knot at Work Sailing

Since the beginning of time, people have been naming their boats. Historically though, they did this for logistical reasons-- a foolproof way to make sure the passengers and crew all showed up to the right location, and set sail on the right boat. "We depart at 0700 hours on the Jolly Roger," yielded far greater success rates than, "we depart at 0700 hours on the 071883740012B." Especially in a time when cell phones didn't exist.


But why does every boat still have a name? We don't know for sure. But we suspect it has something to do with pride. A sense of belonging to a greater community of boaters; whether sailors, fishermen, skippers or hobbyists. And that vessel of yours... the one that keeps you from drowning? Well for that reason alone, deserves a name.


And if it's clever, funny, and/or offensive..  all the better.  Here are some of OUR favs ( and check out our Hulls Yeah ribbon belt HERE).
