Knew Carl Gibson (aka: Hoot, after the Astronaut).

He was involved in the original Gibson houseboats, still in business in Goodlettsville, TN. He then split from them and built CarlCrafts. Later, he had to fold that place up and restarted as something else (the name escapes me). His wife was a lawyer and owned all of their possessions and commercial real estate, leasing them back to whatever business Carl was running, so suing Carl was a fruitless exercise. He died a few years back, I believe, from prostate issues.

He was a colorful man and, while his business acumen and ethics were questionable, he was instrumental in forwarding the houseboat trend towards huge, usable interiors on sturdy planing fiberglass hulls.

You'll enjoy your boat.

(as far as the Keys, I'd be reluctant to take any manufacturer's houseboat into saltwater - The hardware and galvanic bonding systems usually aren't up to the task of facing sea salt, AND, you'll be reattaching wood trim and realigning all of the cabinet doors after the flexing exercise. I say keep the Nauti Girl on a nice lake or river system.)

Big E,
B-Nauti belongs to the Outlaw Cowgirl and Banker Ron. They are really good friends of ours. I only own the houseboat.

R Addiction,
Please don't give Gordo any ideas!!!

KCHOTBOAT,
Hmmm.....I'll have to see what I can do about getting a picture of Gordo driving it.

Rah2371,
I like that, but I was thinking I should name it something that if I ever sell it the new owner could live with the boat name. In case they are superstitious.

mcollinstn,
Thanks for the info!

Everyone is coming up with good suggestions for names. Keep them coming!

Julie I have seen hayseeds with bumper stickers that say "cowboy up" I have no idea what that means. (must have to listen to hick music or something) How about "COWGIRL UP ".

Kchotboat.........I can't believe you haven't photo shoped that pic with one vision racing.

Julie, I am really liking this "Ranch" idea. I mean everyone at the lake knows who the cowgirls are and your old boat was called the "Cowgirl Boat" so......I am thinking the cowgirl theme should be there some where.

"Freshwater Ranch" is VERY cool.
"Cowgirl Coral" maybe.

I am going to have to vote on other and not the two we started with.

I really kind of like "Nauti Girl" so now it's between "Nauti Girl" or "Miss Chievous".

Out of those two names which one do you like best?
