Boat Superstition??


TRIBE Member
Does anyone know if it is bad luck to change the name a boat was christened under?
The boat was never register under the name it has now but still is it bad luck?

it doesn't matter whether the name is registered. once it's christened, you can't change the name.

that particular superstition has been around far longer than the name registry has existed.

why do you want to rename a boat? how bad could the name be?

we want to change it for sentimental reasons... my dad fixed up a 1950 something wooden Shephard(sp?) name Stardust, but he wants to rename it after our dog.
So I guess it's a no go, you don't take chances with stuff like that huh?

It could be named "The Assman".

You know what seems to be the most popular names for boats? "Mercury" and "Evinrude". Seems like there are tons of those around. Talk about unoriginal!
