Default I've been told it is bad luck to.............

rename a boat, is that true? What does everyone think? I'm not that superstitious, just not sure the wife is going to let me keep the name. Its name is......


I personally like it, but not sure she does.

Not sure, but if your ex-wife is renaming the boat you've already had the bad luck.

Yep just like if you spill salt you have to though some over your shoulder, it's bad to pop a blister berfor the sun go's down. Are you blind or do you have hairy palms?

My buddy had a 31 Scarab and when he got it it was named "The Macharania", he had 10 great years after the name change to "Balance".

My 386 was named X-Sonic Rated. I'm not even sure what that means. I removed the old name, haven't yet come up with a new name yet, but I will before summer. Kids want Scream Machine. I don't like it but it does fit. With 3 women on board, someone is always screaming.

Mine was "Behavior Disorder III" when I purchased her. To keep the Gods happy, I just removed the III part, so its still Behavior Disorder.

I don't think it's bad luck. And I don't blame your wife for wanting to change the name!

I can't even buy any good luck. The Formula called "Red Boat" bought used. The Infinity.."Pete's Ordeal" due to the history.
Red Boat is still Red Boat.. Old Avanti. kept the name.. "Cleanin' up" Fliped on higway. Should have changed he name. What's the answer? Buy a new boat and name it what you want.
