Got a name for your boat?

I've owned my boat since 1984 and just recently came up with a name for it. It's a 1978 Penn Yan cuddy cabin 20 feet long. Was racking my brain trying to come up with a good name for it and while I was taking my buddy for a real fast ride he said "boy is this a bad penny" and the name just stuck. So "Bad Penny" it is. One of my other buddies is a plumber and named his 1964 wooden Egg Harbor "Gray Waters" his name is Pete Gray and the waste water from a sink is called "gray water" so I guess this fits well. Another buddy of mine has a 30 foot wooden 1966 Chris Craft that has the original chevy engines that always has troubles keeping it running so he named his boat "Troubled waters". Anyone have any funny names for their boats as well? Nameing a boat is not so easy to do is it?

I only have little 14 ft. and she don't have a name.(yet) But when cruising through the Wabasha Marina I see a few. Some like "Past Tents" or "Her Idea". A lot more but I got a case of C.R.S. right now.

Mine is the MisAdventure to describle the event that happened when my wife went on her maiden voyage in the boat. My plug loosened and fell out about an hour and a half into our trip, luckily I did have an extra plug along but I didn't get it in before water was seeping up through the floor of the boat. It took 1/2 hour before the bilge pump emptied the H20 contents in the bilge. That is why she is named MisAdventure and not Miss Aventure.

Take care!

I named mine "Snortin Norton" after my first huntin dog. He had a habit of snortin at you when he was disgusted or p.o.'d.

Just bought a Tracker Pro Deep V 17 a few weeks ago. My wife and I were having trouble with figuring out a name, but it came to me one evening while I was a little homesick for Minnesota. We named it "Uf-Dah!"

I have a 10 foot Lund duck boat that on the bottom we spraypainted "Mallard Raper". It's gotten a few laughs, more gasps though.

I saw a couple of big ones on Tonka that had good names. One was PLAN B. I wonder what plan A was. The other was a big cruiser that had KID'S INHERITANCE across the stern.

I dont have a name for mine but just go by "Northlander" when on the Marine Band. I figure if I go by another name nobody would have a clue who I was. Maybe thats a good thing? wink.gif

CrappieTom,

That name is really unique. I kind-of like it. I wish I would have thought of that name for my boat.

I also call our boat "Da Boat".

After reading this post I think I need a new name for it though. How about, "give'r h#ll!" lol grin.gif or "Living on the Edge"....

Living on the Edge more describes it. Lots of interesting stories. tongue.gif

Actually I have made reference to "the boat" using several different names....generally they run hand -in-hand with it's state of repair, inability to handle high waves, inability to be controlled in stiff wind and the list can go on. For the most part it is just "the boat".

I call mine "Insta GATOR". I wanted to call it "The Hooker", but my wife didn't like that idea.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.
    • ReefWhooligan
      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?
    • Wheres_Walter
      We were up this past weekend.  We got cold but did ok.  We caught around 40 walleye.  Most were 12-14" a handful of 14-16".  Good activity and a full fry pan, but no bigger fish.  Frazer and Smarts bays.  All Jig and minnow.  Mornings we found them at 24-26 FOW.  Evenings in 7-10 FOW.  Water temp was 50-52.

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.
