Nick,

Boat looks great. Curious to hear how you will like being on a mooring vs. keeping her on the trailer. Bottom paint, reduced corrosion and flexibility to fish other locations always outweighed the slip/mooring in my case but there are certainly times I wish I could just walk down to the marina and go for a quick spin.

As for names, I have always been a traditionalist on that front. My boat is the Avril Marie (wife's and sister's middle names). No lettering on the boat as it just never seemed to look right unless I removed the JB decals in the stern and I didn't want to do that.

Best of luck with her this season. Keep me in the loop on any tuna sightings/catches!

Sean
