Change the name to "so be it" if you have bad luck then you can just say "SO-B-IT", but I bet your luck changed because of some other stupid superstition u-DID ! ps: go by the ol'maritime law and b-done with it !

I'm not superstitious and therefore believe a name change will be a non-event. If you want some type of security, why not put the old name in vinyl on the bilge bulkhead or the inside of a cabinet, anchor locker, etc.

I changed the name of my current boat. When I bought it, the name was Who's Your Daddy?

I changed the name to TWISTED

I have had good times on it!

I've heard that you need to wear red socks on the boat if you change the name.

Gotta love superstitions!

No problem if it's a new boat to you.
However make sure you don't have any bananas on board if you do any fishing.

You should not carry any item witch bears the old name after you purge the name from the ledger of the deep and from Poseidon's memory! The old name should be written on a metal tag in water-soluble ink. Then dropped from the bow of the vessel during such ceremony.

Here's how boating luck works...

Buying boat- bad luck

Buying bigger boat- more bad luck

Buying boat with bigger engines- really bad luck

Buying boat with MORE engines- truly tempting fate

Selling boat- good luck.

Hope that clears things up.

Can't wait for my good luck. My bad luck is a month late. So it's way bad luck.
