Boat Naming Contest


I am determined to buy a boat.  A somewhat laughable boat, yes, but a boat. And I will learn to drive my little boat.

Here in my marina beige-world community, the boat docks have outlets. I'm going to buy a little electric boat. I might buy a Duffy. Or I might buy an Electracraft. There are quite a few of both of them in the neighborhood.

I wish my name was Virginia so I could name my boat "Ginnny's Tonic." But it's not, and another name change is not in my future,  so other boat names under consideration are:
Moby Dink
The Lucy-Tanya
Titania
Non Liki
Mighty Slow
Naughty Us

Morning Becomes (if I buy an Electracraft)

And of course, there's always:
Margaritaville

Feel free to send your suggestions. And in fact, I declare this to be a contest--the very first here in Leaving Divorceville! The top 3 contenders will receive a book of essays.

It has to be Magaritaville!

I also like Zephyr but that is probably very common. If I had a boat I would probably name it Serenity. For you I suggest The Happily Ever After.

HMMMM--I'm going to think about this. I don't think it should be margaritaville, though. Moby Dink is my favorite, so far.

I join the chorus saying, "It's not here yet."

I want to think on this for a bit. The competition is tough, and I am not clever. In the meantime, let me say that I think it is great that you are buying a boat. Fun, freedom, and wind in your hair!

Windword

(I know, I know, you're not likely to sail in the Windwards, but the word works well with your career as a writer.)

In the same vein: Forwords, as you continue to move forward.

Congratulations!

Professional opinion: ZOMG, Mom, DO NOT name your boat Naughty (or Nauti or Knotty) ANYTHING. It's so trite it's a joke. I like MerSea a lot, if you're going to go with a pun. Good luck!
Love,

Am I too late? Has she been christened already? I can't believe nobody has suggested painting her pea green and naming her Runcible Spoon!
