Boat Renaming

This has probably been covered a million times, but I'm not keen on upsetting our friend King Neptune.

I've seen a new boat, but the name has been changed.

1. Can I change the name back to the original or does this upset Neptune double?

2. As I'm not sure if a proper re-naming ceremony was performed, can I now perform the ceremony as if changing the name now?

Sounds like a good reason to drink champagne.

Cheers Ian.

Read this, but it doesn't really answer the question/s.

It deals with changing, but only if it hasn't been renamed already.

Not sure why but I am being a bit daft about this!!!

There must be a reason why boaties have a 'legend' about it......

I just hoped it would work a second time. If poseidon has forgotten all about it from the first renaming hopefully it would work. Point 2 - hmmm harder but as long as he forget he forgets - maybe double the champagne quantity?

commercial vessels are re named all the time. i have always believed that to re name was to bring bad luck - but now i am of the belief that if a boat has a new owner, been refitted or changed its use then its fine to re name without incurring the wrath of the gods.

Change a boat name is unlucky
Having green on a boat is unlucky
Say 'Rabbit' on a boat is unlucky
Women on boats is unlucky, yes that's another one

All of the above are made up by old seamen talking bollocks after drinking too much rum.

I agree to all the above, but I make sure I'm at anchor or at the dock before I let a woman on board. I took me first wife on a crossing and hit a huge flecking gale wit seas taking out my pilot house glass and shearing antennas.

Cheers, Squid
