Name Change

So it looks like I'll be changing the name of the boat after all. The original owner is still using Dunstable Diver on his new rig, and though I know it's not 'strictly' necessary, it's a decent excuse to change a name I'm not totally happy with.

So what is the sacred rite I need to perform to ensure I am not cursed with bad luck and end up in Davey Jones' locker? (arghhh, Jim lad etc etc)

I was always told to do it when the boat is out of the water and tell the boat why you are doing it.

I am sure you will get lots more replys

Yeah, but I thought there'd be a special one for RIBs.

Generally, it becomes a question of how to get the name off/on the tubes or which section of the radio licence dsc registration is the hardest?....

Remove all traces of the old name from the boat. Put the new name on, pour some booze on it then get drunk

Gave you my advice but having a good swally for an initiation would seal it .. at a location of some spiritual interest with the boat, and I dont mean at the pulpit .. or the offy

The safest way of not incuring the wrath of the gods is to get the previous owner to remove the name himself.
Then you are safe to rename it yourself.
