Fun, clever, vain, and odd boat names


Below are some of the best and worst boat names observed during our week along the Lake Michigan coastline. Of those listed, the most common themes appear to be relaxation/getting away from it all (9), partying (5), and the value of the boat (4).

The ten most common boat names in 2015 according to Boat U.S. are shown in the following photograph. Two of the names seen over the past week are included within the list (Seas the Day and Second Wind) and therefore lose out on the originality scale.

Just for fun, I figured if we ever get a float/pontoon boat, Poop Deck would be a catchy name for it.
