The group I camp with told me it doesn't matter what I think it should be called. They say it's up to them. They named our last 11' polished 66 Forrester the love shack. We found the song on a tape and played it when arriving at our camping destination. They have pretty mush settled on Landyacht (how original) for our 73 25' Tradewind. I bought one of those cheap yacht hats and throw an anchor out when we arrive now. Stupid but keeps with them amused. Maybe your friends? can assist!

My 79 Argosy 6.0M was purchased from a wonderful man by the name of Salvatore, a beautiful Italian name. So, she is called "My Gal Sal" in his honor.

I'm a big Jimmy Buffett fan so we named ours "Changes in Latitudes" because we wanted to use it in Florida a lot and that would be a change in latitude for us. Our camping cocktail is a watermelon margarita (my wife's favorite). Being Disney fans, we use a Mickey Mouse meets Jimmy Buffett theme to our camp site and our interior decor.
