    So last year, I bought a boat down here to replace the one I sold up north.

    The one I had up north was 21 feet. But really 20.

    My new one is 18 feet.

    And I’m slapping a name on her.

    Raging debate among my boat friends and non boat friends is:

    Is it appropriate to name a short boat? And if not, at what length should a boat get a name.

    I’m naming it anyway. But was interested in what gun guys would say since y’all seem to be avid boaters who keep losing your guns over the side.

    No debate. Of course you should name it. How about Sloop John B?

    i have seen dingys with names. Anyone that is concerned with what you do with your boat should be told to screw off.

    EDIT: that would have been a lot funnier if you lived in MA, sorry for projecting.

    my 16 foot bass boat is called the SS Grab Bass...

    There's a guy up the road from me that has a nice cabin boat...the name on it is "The Other Bitch". I wonder if he's married?

    When we had the 28 ft pontoon boat at the lake house in NH, we named it "The African Queen" Jack.

    It has to be named in order to get the Federal permit. If you don't have the permit, you can't go fishing.
