Default Need help naming the new boat

I took delivery of my new ride today. It is a Cabo 40 flybridge sportfisherman(picture below). I sold the Fountain and am looking to do a bit more fishing and snorkeling with the kids.

All my previous boats have been named MegaByte, MegaByte*2, MegaByte*3 primarily because sales of computers, memory, disks, and Info Technology and Management consulting work paid for the hobby. I am no longer in that business, so I am at a bit of a loss to come up with a good name.

We live in Naples, Florida. I am of Irish and Scottish heritage. I am currently operating a boat dealership selling Triton fishing boats and Sunsation powerboats in Southwest Florida.

So far I have the following lame candidates:

4 C's (there are 4 of us in the Cullen family)

Fin McCool, with a fish motif; Finn McCool is a legendary Irish giant who was capable of any task.

Cabo Wabo

MegaByte **4

Paradigm Shift (consulting gig lingo)

Weasel Space (I often call my kids weasels)

Carpe Fiche (strictly speaking, "sieze the document", but it has the right sound.) Alternately, Carpe Pisces.

I need some help coming up with a few more good ones.

Thanks,

Tom

Anglersonly.com does not have that much traffic yet. Besides, powerboaters are so much more creative.
