    Just wondering. What name you call your boat. (be nice) I named mine Furr Sail. When I bought it the carbs needed rebuilt. I didn't know this. So off to the lake i went. it ran about 200yards from ramp and quit. the wind came up and pushed me back toward the ramp.I loaded it on trailer and started to work on it. Now I never leave shore without a paddle.This has probably been ask a lot of times.

    What I call my old boat (1984 Champion) is "paid for". I really like to have a new or newer one, but if I did get one I couldn't call it by the same name, so I'll just stick with this one.

    The governor of the great state of Arkansas has a bass boat that he calls
    "State Business", said he named it that so if he's out fish'n and someone asks where he's at his staff just tells them that he's out on state business.

    we call our boay "white knuckles", the old guy that we bought the boat off of had a pin in and could not put the motor down all the way (they guy didnt know enough about boats to know if he took the the pin out or put it lower it would run better) but hitting waves with the motor tilted up like that made for a ride where you really had to hold on. they named it white knuckles.

    we bought it and put alot of repairs on it, the first time we have it out in the ocean we didnt have a gps but we knew the compass diresction to a wreck 11 miles offshore so we go out and we see another boat going in that direction so we follow them thinking that they know where there going, well about five miles out they slow down and we use the compass to keep going and we take the lead they follow us so we keep going but we dont see any more boats. normaly theres about 30 or 40 boats at these wrecks. so we stop and find out we went about 14 miles offshore so we missed it somewhere along the line. the boat behind us stops and asks us if we know where we are going since they dont. well we decided to drop some lines and see if we get anything. after 15 mins the wind starts picking up then the waves really start moving. so we headed back in but in the 20 foot shallow v boat it was a ruff ride with cold water coming over us after every wave. it was a decently long way in because we could barly make any progress against the waves. being in a 20 foot boat going up and down 12 foot waves is not fun at all. well we were getting pretty nervous but we made it back in. so the name white knuckles kind have stuck ever since.

    Well several years ago i was opening some stores for Albertsons grocery chain and I was working in Grand Forks N.D. and all my spare time I spent fishing the red river for catfish.there was a homemade raft tied up to the shore that some collage students had made and it looked like something huck finn would of sailed down the mississipi river on and it was named U.S.S. CARP. I thought that was perty cool so I stole the name and now that is what I put on my boat for a name. Bigcatman0816.

    My boat was originally named "The Ghetto II"

    Since an accident involving my brother in law, the boat/trailer, and a brick mailbox, it has become "The slightly haunted killer attack boat, aka, The Toe-inator"

    For those who don't know, my brother in law had my boat in his driveway, backed up to it and was getting ready to hook it to his truck. Somehow, it turned, went past the back of his truck, dragging him along with it trying to stop it. The tongue of the trailer smacked into his bricked in mailbox which toppled over onto his right foot. They had to remove 1/4 of his big toe, and all of the toe next to his pinky toe. Hense the name "Toe-inator"

    Bought it in Aug, still haven't gotten it out on a lake.

    I call mine the Sea Lemon II...

    The original Sea Lemon was my cousin's boat... first time they had it out she decided to not raise up the prop up enough and ended up breaking it... a $700 lesson. After that and a few other mishaps, we named it the Sea Lemon because it was a floating hunk of junk.'

    And since my boat was a floating hunk of junk from the getgo the name kinda fit it.

    My family has had a fireworks stand for the last 30 years. All my family works there every year, so it's a good time for us to all get together and visit and also make a little extra cash. I used my fireworks money last year to buy my boat. It is a 1989 Bass Tracker 1800 TF with a 110 evinrude. It is metallic red so we named it "Water Dynamite" after a popular firecracker we sell. The kids think it's cool. Boog

    Ours is called Tattered Grace

    Our two female Labs are named Tattles and Grace. Their names, combined with a ding here and a dent there on the boat, plus the boat always getting us to where we want on the lake and back by God's grace, it seened like a befitting name.
