Name my boat contest

I have owned my boat for 4 years. I gave it the name "Reel Fishy" last year because I thought it might be bad luck to go unnamed. But I don't like it!
Help me name my boat and the winner gets a all expenses paid trip to the flats of your choice, providing it's on the Cape, you get your own hotel, and come with your own gear. Oh, and you can't be talkin all day while were tryin to fish! OK so I'm no charmer to fish with, but we usually have a blast and catch alot of fish. I win both ways, get a new name for the boat AND fish with a friend, new or old friend, it dosen't matter. Help me out, PLEASE

Hold on ...

Hey BC, I'm a "Mariner" and as such I am highly schooled in the various superstitions that revolve around boating. I feel that it is incumbent on my part to advise you that the renaming of a vessel is considered to be very bad luck. Not sure where this taboo originated but I must in all honesty pass it on.

Moonlight, I'm not concerned with bad luck as I am with a bad name.
Juro, "Casey's Jones" I like, top of the list so far, but keep them coming!
DFix, bottom, sorry!

Gregg, have you come up with a name for the new sled yet?

What's the deal on renaming a boat, the CC I lucked into last fall was named 'Papa two' I'd hate to bring on bad luck and to tell the truth I probably won't even get around to peeling off the lettering this year. There's a big list of fix this add that, I haven't even changed the registration numbers yet.
When I do name the boat I'm thinking 'Byte-Me'

I don't know Case. If I were you I'd lose this thread and take Moonlights advise.

Moonlight,
I must have missed your post before I replied. What's the general rule for renaming a boat after a change of ownership. I'm not supersitious but my boat luck has not been great so far and I'm simply not going to push my luck.

OK, I guess maybe, possibly on this point I may be supersitious.

So if I just bought the boat that already had a name can I rename it without the wrath of the boat name gods coming down on me?
