a good name for my Boat?
Picking a name for you boat
can be difficult to say the least. Now for some, it's a 'piece of
cake'. They know right away what she will be called. Had the
boat name picked out for years. But for others, they've said it's
harder than picking out their firstborn child's name.

few boat name points to consider:
to long, not to short
You don't want the boat
name to be so long your out of breath by the time your done. Especially

family before the decision is made. Especially if they are having
trouble with nailing it down. And this is, in the end, the best idea.

still can't come up with the perfect boat name, show your friends and family
your 'short list'. No doubt they'll give you an opinion on the perfect
