  • Boat Names Poll...

    What do you do when you purchase a new boat?
    • Keep same name
    • Rename new rig
    • Make the II
    • Other

    I have run the same boat for 13 years, and have never really thought about this. Other than on my placards I don't plan to display, but not sure what to do about 241 name.

    Funny story... I have always told my boys that pork chop is a poor mans steak, we eat pork chops often. When I told them I am getting my dream boat I was greeted with, "A Regulator?". When I told them no it was a poor mans Regulator, the quick witty response was, "name it Pork Chop" [:0][B)].

    When I bought my last big boat I thought: "If I were adopting a child I would not change it's name because it was suddenly mine." And the name was not objectionable, but rather decent, so I kept it.

    I like your pork chop story.

      Rename it pork chop and follow the rules to the rename. Out of curiosity what is the old name?

        I kept the same name in theory. The original name was Predator. Not really a good name on the side of a boat in a neighborhood.I named it "Get the Gaff"... but reference AKA Predator. keeps the superstition from happening.

        Chuck we can come up with several names for you if you need us to.

          OK, so what are the rules for a rename? My Mako hasn't had a name, as far as I know. We have always called it the Mako. Might consider giving it a name, but have not as of yet. Hmm, does that keep me safe from the superstition?

              With that background story plus the boys consensus, how could you not name it "Pork Chop"?

                  I think " MY Unicorn" would be a better fit.

                    My vote for a name is ABOUT F-ing TIME

                    Ha, couldn't pass that opportunity up. Chuck finally bought another Mako after years and years of looking. []

                      Never change the name! Its bad boating mojo, unless you hold an official boat relaunching (make change) party. I was lucky when I brought my 1970 Mako 19. She wasnt named or restored yet so MakOver was the name I gave her.

                          Pork Chop is pretty good.

                            The 241 was named "Rigged Out" with the name was on the sides; I have removed.

                            The 224 is "Accountability".

                              I thought the name would have been Roll Tide for sure, but I like Pork Chop, it's unique, funny, and has personal meaning. Just follow the proper rules for both the 'denaming ceremony' and 'christening' ceremony.
