How did you name your boat? I am always curious about how people name their boat and if there is a story behind it. After seeing all of the names on this site, I am looking forward to hearing the stories...So, If you have a boat how did you come up with the name?

Great Name!
Absolutely! I am so excited for you guys! By the way - She sails BEAUTIFULLY! We got caught in some very strong gusts on Sunday and she sailed like a dream...
We named our Pearson Veranda. Who doesn't like to sit out on the Veranda and watch the sun go down?

You said it best! Thanks for sharing
There is a Napa Valley, CA winery named Far Niente . They produce some wonderful wines. I asked them what Far Niente meant and they said its Italian for for "doing nothing". I thought it would be a great name for my boat. Turns out that the joke is on me. When is ever nothing to do on a boat?? ;-)
Exactly! Thanks for sharing. Now, I bet there's a story to your user name too...?
I wanted to name my boat something different and understandable over the radio. Looked at why I felt so comfortable on boats and came up with "Trost", German for comfort.

It also was the name of a cat I know!

Cheers, Mike

we named it for the method of acquisition: press "Submit" on Ebay! Besides, as a person who loves puns, "Submit" can heve many meanings

No kidding! You bought your boat on ebay? That's wonderful! Clever name-
Hi folks, I don't have an Oday, nor have i read if these names have been mentioned. I thought of these for an Oday boat.:
OH HAPPY DAY, and....DADDA BE THE DAY Or would you spell that DADA?
Naming a boat is always fun and takes some time, well at least for my crew.
My first boat, which was purchased on eBay, was a Com-Pac 16 that I brought up from Maryland. Now for the name, my family loves Florida so much that we went with 'Floridaze', a slight change in the spelling from the Buffet song.

Well we loved sailing so we sold that and moved up to a Com-Pac 19 purchased locally. Having a fondness for Kenny Chesney, my wife choose 'Gypsy Soul' from his song You Save Me.

Still fighting off threefootitis, we sold off that vessel and purchased a Seaward 22. Hoping this boat would be the needed cure for a few years we named her 'Panacea'. Now that's seven letters and one triples, that's got to be lucky!

With all three boats we did a simple renaming ceremony. Announced the new moniker, drank a toast and then threw the remaining libation against her hull. For any extra good luck I also keep a Bermudian fifty cent piece under the mast.

"Quo Fata Ferunt !"

Fantastic! Best of luck on Panacea!

Cabin eyebrow windows

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response.   Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
