The Yarest Vessel this Side of the Mississippi

In response to requests to see pictures of my new (used) sailboat, I thought I would post a few here:



I still can't figure out why a SAILboat came with a key...


I thought I spied a lily-livered scurvy dog….But, turns out it was a lavender-kidneyed scoliosis cat.

As I was cleaning it up, I sipped moderately on some spiced rum called "Sailor Jerry". Since some people call me "Jerry" for short, the coincidence seems noteworthy.

Also, I need a name for it. Any suggestions?


Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
–Mark Twain

    I’m not very good with names that would suit your tastes, but it is a very nice boat and I hope you enjoy it! :)

      And I’m really not sure why ‘Jerry’s Jabberwocky’ and ‘Jerry’s Jocundity” came to mind… Haha. Ignore me, by all means. :) See you tomorrow!

    Finally an opportunity to wear my dockers! For that reason I say her name should be “the Dock Opp Pro”

  4. Jessie Says:

    I think you should name her Raquel, after Raquel Welch in The Fantastic Voyage. :)

    Ummm…”Shashank”. Duh, what else would it be!

    SS Shank
    Viking Bandit
    The Tack
    Poseidon’s Shoe

    That”s pretty funny Jeremiah, I’ve always wanted to stand on a boat like that, I thought it would be fun! I don”t really have any Boat names to give you though, but I”m sure you can come up with something funny!

  9. Siobhan Says:

    Ehem. In most cases, amateur boats are given a female name. This makes the boat more desirable as a water companion, and less of a mindless vehicle. The really GOOD female boat names are ones that are unique and pretty…

    I don’t think I need to say any more. I think you know what you need to do.

  10. Siobhan Says:

    How about, “Moist Respite”? It’s actually perfect. Or you could have it be male, a Mr. something… and we can all just acknowledge that the M and R stand for Moist Respite.

    I have a handful of suggestions from Patrick O’Brien’s sea novels:

    The most beautiful name in the whole wide world-Jenny.
    (Someone please get this)

    OK, so firstly.. your drinking my favorite Rum.. the last few drops in our bottle here at home have disappeared into the abyss called my stomach. Will visit Sailor Jerry again!
    You can almost never go wrong with a sailboat… unless of course you’re in a swimming pool indoors.
    Congrats on your purchase . But do you really want to be called Skipper???
