    In the event we purchased a boat that did not have a name do we still undergo the re-naming ceremony to foster good luck?

    Wow...that's a lot of superstition.. I think I may have broken every rule in naming and launching a boat here and abroad... I just ripped that old name off like a band-aid...slapped the new one on and away we went :)

    One should never P.O. the water Gods with the sin of omission. That said, I'm not superstitious because that would be unlucky.

    Every time I've renamed a boat I've followed the accepted nautical procedures....except one time. Guess which time this was...

    I don't, but if you google "renaming a boat" I'm sure you'll find it.

    Bring lots of champagne to the renaming.

    That's basically the standard, however I purged the old name and waited 24 hours to rename. There is a old man in our marina (that looks like the sea spit him up) that said it was best to wait 24 hours so that any bad juju leaves the boat with the name... im very superstitious, I waited 2 days.

    Ha! We had old name removed during winter lay-up so I waited months...Then dropped my phone in the lake so I have no video of our ceremony.
