Our boat which came unnamed is due to be renamed "The Smug Druggler" appears to be the best suggestion so far as suggested by a mate, I thought it was quite funny, not sure how well it'd go down over VHF though

Haha, yeah it might raise a few eyebrows!

I must admit, my boat "Wings" wouldn't be my choice of name, but having spent 22 years in the navy I'm a little "superstitious" about the supposed bad luck brought about by re-naming ships (boats)!

My Pac 22 is called Fugly, because it is not pretty.

I heard of someone calling a yacht 'Business' took me a while to realise the amazing potential with this..

"sorry I cant come shopping with you that weekend as I am away on business and not sure when I will be back..."

I agree with Ovey about renaming, I wouldn't have picked Beretta - but I dint want any of the bad luck associated with name changing.
