If they had changed it's name to the Olympic, then the Titanic would never have sunk !

Keep the old boat name on the boat somewhere and there'll be no bad luck!

changed the name on my first boat, after around a yr or so the engine blew up!! but in the end I still sold it for 2k more than I paid for it, even after the repair bill

not sure if it was bad luck or good luck!!
